CES 2020: LG Unveils New 8K TVs With HomeKit and AirPlay 2 Support

LG today announced the upcoming debut of its 2020 8K TV lineup featuring eight new TVs in sizes ranging from 65 inches to 88 inches, all of which support Apple's HomeKit and AirPlay 2.

There are premium 77 and 88 inch LG Signature OLED 8K TVs along with 8K LG NanoCell TVs in 65 and 75-inch sizes. LG says that all of the TVs exceed the official 8K Ultra HD definition set by the Consumer Technology Association and are able to play native 8K content.

The new TVs work with Apple ‌HomeKit‌ and ‌AirPlay‌ 2, allowing them to interact with other ‌AirPlay‌ 2 devices and to be controlled via Siri voice commands. ‌HomeKit‌ support also means the new LG TVs will show up in the Home app.

LG's 2020 8K TVs include a new AI processor that takes advantage of deep learning for optimized picture and sound quality. The TVs are able to recognize faces and text on the screen, fine-tuning and sharpening for natural skin tones, better defined facial features, and clearer characters.

LG will be showing off its 8K TV lineup at the Consumer Electronics Show, which is set to kick off next week.

15 years after HD, 90% of my broadcasts are still 720p. And now we're onto 8k? ?

Are consumer product companies now regularly advertising "deep learning" as a feature?
AI and deep learning are the new "Pro" of product marketing.

All new Aunt Jemima Maple Syrup. Now with Deep Learning. The syrup can detect dry spots on pancakes and waffles and direct the flow to cover them.

Stop watching broadcast TV! 99% of the content on streaming services is 1080 or above. Any film made or remastered in the last 4-5 years is going to be available in 4K. Similar situation with video games, 4K consoles came out in 2017.

It's not a content issue for broadcast TV. It's that the signal has to be compatible with over the air broadcasts, and the ATSC 1.0 standard required by law only allows 720p or 1080i. So it's a question of which is worse between lower resolution or interlacing.

Really, 8K is wasted on anything less than 77” and if you’re not viewing less than 10 feet from it. 4K is the gold standard and will remain that way for years to come.

Shouldn’t things like skin tone be decided by the filmmakers and the tv just try to reproduce original source as accurately as possible?

Not just 720p, but compressed 720p usually (at least with cable).

That being said, still content with my 55" LH B7 OLED. :)
