What’s up, I’m here at CBS 20/20, enjoying the incredible amount of tech that’s being announced.
And 1 of the biggest trends of CBS this year is AKCA. I feel like this is the year that ACA becomes important in the home.
So today I’ve partner with Skyworks to show you some of their incredible TVs because this is a company that you should definitely get familiar with because this super-thin 4K lead and this a.k.a. bad boy is coming to the United States at a very competitive price tag.
Sky Worth isn’t a household name in the U.S., but they have been strong in the Chinese market for a long time and they are finally making their splash into the U.S. market in 2020.
But before I get into the ACA, let’s look at the incredibly thin W 81 and W 81 pro.
This is a 4.6-millimeter thin wallpaper olad that is magnetically wall mounted and it looks seamless on the wall. It looks beautiful with 4K resolution and Dolby Vision Support Skyworks made their own OLED basic modules this year and is the first to be used in the W 81 series.
You get all of the picture quality that you would expect from a premium old TV, vibrant colors, and Inky Black’s amazing viewing angles and infinite contrast.
But this is something that you don’t see often. There is a secondary display that is built into the soundbar and that gives you all of your necessary information, like the date, the weather, your smart home status.
Both of these displays worked together for a better experience, so I’m totally digging this. The audio from the soundbar is premium well, with support for Dolby at most 2.1.2 and creates multi-dimensional sound by firing audio from all angles with Skyworks Wonder Audio Sky Echo technology.
There’s a 12-megapixel camera built-in that reveals itself when you turn it on.
This is called the Trends A.I. 2.0 camera. This is a flagship Sony sensor with F 1.8 aperture. So you gonna get some really nice quality here and some good low light performance. This is going to give you TV to TV.
We can do TV to smartphone video calling, which is even more convenient, and you can take photos on your TV. And then just scan a QR code and it will send it straight to your smartphone, which is nice. The camera can be used for body recognition.
So the demo they had here is for exercise to help you improve your form.
And his camera can be used for motion-sensing games. So the possibilities are definitely there.
There’s a separate SWAT panel, which is a supplement display that automatically syncs with the TV and the content that you’re watching on it. So you can switch seamlessly between them. You can control your smart home appliances from there well.
It’s available in a 4 inch. So it’s more like a smartphone form factor or a 10.1-inch version. So the bigger one is going to give you that tablet view.
So let’s get into what I’m most excited about. And that is the 75 inches cute 91 8 KTV.
The resolution is 76, 80 by 43, 20, which is 4 times the resolution of four. This is an impressive IPS LCD panel and it looks fantastic. It’s sharp, has vibrant colors, is bright, and has all of the features that you’d expect from a flagship TV like HDMI.
2.1 AK 60 frames per second decoding even AK. Hundred and 20 frames per second emulation with their AAIB software and of course, AK upscaling to make all content look close to a case possible. Even if it’s tiny DP or Fourcade, it’ll look great on this.
I was concerned about the viewing angle since it’s not old, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The viewing angles are ultra-wide on this. I did not see a significant fall off at all here.
It has an impressive 576 local dimming zones and is powered by the brand new mediatheque AKs 900 chipset. This is going to give the TV the power of real AK consent playback, along with some awesome A.I. upscaling capabilities.
There is an API you built-in specifically to handle the AK signal processing, which is able to analyze whatever’s on the screen and improve all parts of the picture, including contrast, color, and clarity. So things look very promising for this panel. I like the design of this TV is very different than what’s currently on the market.
It has this very interesting curved metal framed with decorative bronze-colored lines. They went with Navy Blue, which I think is classic in terms of color. And you can see that on the built-in soundbar, which is a part of the stand, which is very unique.
The Sound Bar supports Dolby at most 2.1.2. So you’re getting that premium audio. Other things I appreciate are the hidden chord base for cleaner cable management, and the school is a backplate for the TV.
The retail pricing for these super-thin W 81 OLAD is 35 99 NCW 81 pro with the secondary display will go for 45 99.
But the biggest surprise to me is the 75 inch AK model.
This will go for 5999$. To put this into perspective, this is coming in at about 5000$ less than what competitors did. Last year. So this is great, considering you’re getting a premium soundbar with the TV and true AK. Playback. I get it. AK isn’t for you.
For most people, it still isn’t something that they’re thinking about quite. But the competition is fantastic.
The tech gets better and the tech is cheaper. So I’m excited to see a Kagle mainstreamed in the home. I have an AK TV at home right now and I love it, so I can’t wait to try this one out.
