Last year there was claims the LG panel structure will continue to 2020. QD-OLED prototype was shown behind closed doors January by samsung displays. I also have a feeling the Zg2000 might continue to next year. If if do see an increase of brightness will be interesting to see if we can tell the difference, when watching real contentIt will be interesting to see what advances LG make in their 10 series OLEDs. (Assuming that they stick to the annual product launch cycle that they have had in the past.) According to Danny Tack from Philips LG will be releasing sets with a small (10% to 15% or aroudn 100 nits) increase in peak brightness.
I wonder if LG will include any of the changes that Panasonic made in their custom OLED panel?
I assume that it is still too early to see any consumer ready QD-OLED or micro-LED sets - those technologies still seem to be a few years away from consumer release.
I have very little interest in 8k sets and the general consensus appears to be that it has little real world benefit. However, I expect 8k to be a central theme across all the manufacturers.
I’m assuming we will be seeing some more AV receivers going 2.1 (especially as Yamaha had a “year out” this year) to go along with the higher end tv’s. As it seems to be the new consoles at the end of next year implementing 2.1, I suppose we may see another year of 2.0b tv’s, won’t be surprised if many play the old one port 2.1, the rest 2.0b stunt.Interested to see whether HDMI 2.1 becomes a thing beyond LG televisions. The way things are going I wouldn't bet on another year of HDMI 2.0b on most requipment.
No.Can I get a 4k 32-43 Inch, full array local dimming LCD with decent HDR, HDMI 2.1, VRR/ Freesnyc Support, 120HZ panel, 10Bit Panel.
I bought a 49" Samsung 5k monitor that claims to have HDR at 1000 nits for less than £1,000. It is a Christmas present for someone so I have not seen it in action yet. Dont think it has any independently dimmable zones though.I wonder if LG will ever be able to push OLED through the 1000nit level. They seem to be stuck on around 700nits, perhaps at the limit of what the tech can ever deliver.
That said as I watch movies in the dark I'm perfectly content with my now rather antique 700nit B7. If it had eARC and VFR it would really do everything I ever need.
One area where I would like to see huge improvements however is in PC displays. HDR in any form is still incredibly rare, with most of the "HDR" PC monitors on offer topping out at 300 or 400nits. The few displays that can hit 1000nits are saddled with ridiculous price points (well north of £2000 for a 34" screen) and a comically low number of FALD zones. Sorry LCD makers, 500 isn't enough. Add a couple of zeros to the end and it might be worth it. My OLED has over 8 million dimming zones, so try harder.
