LG Electronics announced on Dec. 15 that all of its 2020 8K TV models have received an “8K UHD” certification from the American Consumer Technology Association (CTA). LG Electronics was the industry’s first company to receive the certification.
The CTA is the organizer of the CES, the world's largest consumer electronics and IT exhibition. Over 2,000 global companies including LG Electronics, major manufacturers and distributors, are active members.
The CTA announced the establishment of an 8K UHD certification standard in September and the operation of the certification program beginning on Jan. 1 next year in order to help consumers and sellers easily identify products that meet 8K resolution requirements.
The CTA proposed a set of 8K UHD criteria based on the standard of the International Committee for Display Metrology (ICDM). The criteria include more than 33 million pixels and a contrast modulation of at least 50 percent.
All 8K TVs to be released by LG Electronics next year will meet the CTA 8K UHD standards and carry the certificate logo. The TV giant will showcase a wide array of 8K TV products that received the 8K UHD certification at CES 2020 to be held in January next year. All of 8K OLED TVs and 8K LCD TVs which LG Electronics launched this year feature a 90 percent CM.
