8K Ultra HD TVs have now official specs and a logo One might think that their brand new 4K television is enough for the long haul, but eventually it's going to run out of steam and you'll get a new one.
Likely at that point you are looking at a new generation of TVs that have upped the ante at least in terms of resolution. 8K TVs are coming whether you feel like you need one or not.

The Consumer Technology Association has now officially revealed their definitions for what constitutes a 8K Ultra HD television. According to their specifications, such a TV should first and foremost be capable of displaying at least 33 million pixels, 7680 horizontally and 4320 vertically.

Furthermore, the TV needs to support scaling to 8K, at least one HDMI input capable of 7680 x 4320 resolution, 10-bit color depth, selection of frame rates (24, 30, 60 fps), ITU-R BT.2100 specced HDR transfer and colorimetry, and HDCP v2.2 or equivalent content protection.

If all this is handled by the TV, it will be able to use the new logo. A modification of the 4K Ultra HD logo has now been made for the new 8K Ultra HD TVs.



New logo will be available for manufacturers to use in their marketing January 1st, 2020 onward.

A little late since they have been selling 8K UHD for almost a year now. What's next 8K UltraHD+ with 3 qty 8K ports, 3D, and HDCP v2.3?

Remember ALL the Nay-Sayer's with 4K, the same nonsense is starting all over again with 8K and it's actually the same arguments that were not true last time around. Got to love human nature. :)
