The 8K Association (8KA) was created at the beginning of this year by industry actors like Samsung, TCL, Hisense, Panasonic and Tencent. Its goal is to set specifications for future 8K displays and to stamp 8k-compliant computer or television screens with a distinctive seal. 8KA seeks to avoid a repeat of the “4 K / Ultra HD” fiasco, whereby any mediocre screen can sport the label. Today, 8KA published its first set of specifications covering various parameters, including: minimum resolution of 7680×4320 pixels (33 million pixels); input framerate of 24p, 30p, and 60p frames per second; peak luminance of at least 600 nits; HEVC (H.265) codec support; and HDMI 2.1 interface.
