Quantum processing with 8K upscaling
In addition to its impressive design, by the way, the interior of the TV will not be anything modest. According to Samsung, a new quantum processor based on artificial intelligence will be equipped that will provide a completely renewed experience for the user, ideal for carrying out a upscaling of content for the 8K with a lot of quality.
Regarding image resources, the Samsung going to feature a feature called ?Adaptive Image?, Which provides optimized brightness and contrast in any viewing environment.

As the name says, the codec uses the Deep Learning (?Deep learning?, in free translation) to minimize data loss during compression and allow 8K content to be transmitted over networks with lower bandwidth resources.
Kwangpyo Choi and Youngo Park, researchers on the Visual Technology team at Samsung Research, explain how this process works:
"The 8K content is compressed to 4K quality using an AI downscaler and transmitted to the user's TV, which uses AI to improve the content back to 8K quality."

O AI ScaleNet be applied, at least at first, in the application Amazon Prime Video, in collaboration with Amazon. Separately, the TV supports AV1 for 8K videos from YouTube.
Even more immersive sound
The new quantum processor from Samsung also use artificial intelligence to act on the sound of 8K TV. One of the most innovative features is the OTS + (Object Tracking Sound Plus), a technology that recognizes moving objects on the video, providing a 5.1 surround effect with only the TV's speakers.
THE Samsung also introduce the new feature Q-Symphony, Who find the best sound using the TV and the soundbar speakers. This feature won the best innovation award from CES and offers 9.1.4 channels of high quality sound, richer throughout the house.
In addition, the resource AVA (Active Voice Amplifier) allows the TV to recognize ambient noise and adjust the volume of the speaker voice. With that, consumers will not have to worry about the lack of dramatic lines, even when the environment is noisy.
