In this exhibit you will see an 8K display with content applied at different resolutions in the same frame rate. Then you will get to score the results as being either native resolution or something up-converted and what you perceive to be the level of quality. What makes 8K look so special? What happens when the source is 2K, or lower versus 4K, or native 8K? Are the up-conversions as good as the 8K original? See for yourself and score your choices in booth 615. This is a SMPTE exhibit curated by Video Clarity with 8K Ultra-HD LCD display provided by Sharp.
