Revamp Your Home Theater Installation, CES 2019 Style!
Deck Out Your Entertainment Room With The Latest Technology!
We always enjoy writing blogs around the annual CES exposition, and this year’s show in Las Vegas might just be the most exciting one yet! We look forward to telling you everything we’re learning this year because if we help you implement any of the technology we’re about to discuss, the home theater at your property in the Nashville area will never be the same.
We’re delving into voice control, new TV technologies, innovative audio and many more highlights from CES. Keep reading to see some of the home theater installation updates we are paying attention to for your Tennessee home.
LG’s Revolutionary 8K and Voice-Control TVs
Due to Amazon and Google voice-control products’ ubiquity, prepare for more voice control in coming years. For example, CES last year featured LG’s Alexa-enabled TV series, the ThinQ AI.
In 2019, the series of TVs will be able to accomplish even more, says Wired: “It announced that the a9 Gen 2 processor, built in house, will be deployed in its new, and first, 8K OLED TV – an impressive 88-inch screen with over 33 million self-emitting pixels. The a9 Gen 2’s job? To make sure that every one of those pixels delivers information that is as complete as possible. The TV will react to its visual and audio environment, as well as to the quality of its source content, to optimize tone mapping, brightness and sound.”
This TV employs multiple AI learning techniques that innovate how we currently use voice control. For example, “conversational voice recognition” features will enable LG’s ThinQ AI-enabled products to understand questions and commands more contextually, so users won’t have to repeat themselves.
The TV’s Magic Remote, powered by Amazon, helps users set routines and schedule other home devices, all through their televisions! Not to mention, you can instantly change the channel, set alarms and ask questions using just your voice.
While LG’s voice-control innovations are impressive, so, too, is its unveiling of an 8K television. While 8K video sources are still limited – after all, we still are in the emerging phase of 4K Ultra HD content – more and more often, we are seeing 8K-ready TVs and projectors unveiled! Before long, you’ll be able to experience the magic of 8K in your own Nashville home theater.
At least year’s CES, LG also unveiled a rollable screen TV prototype. That will now become the Signature OLED TV R, which features its hyped, rollable format that rises out of a Dolby Atmos soundbar base! You can expect the 65-inch model to be released this spring.
Samsung’s MicroLED TVs On Display
After unveiling a stunning, 219-inch MicroLED TV at least year’s CES show appropriately named “The Wall,” Samsung returned to Las Vegas this year with an equally stunning 75-inch 4K MicroLED TV model that rivals the image quality of OLED displays. If you are looking for a more expansive screen for your home theater installation, though, Samsung did say that “The Wall” – whose massive display can be resized by taking down certain modules – might be released to the public this year.
Bring on the 5G!
We’ve talked about 5G-enabled devices for quite some time, and 2019 will finally show us some more mass-market proof. 5G will bring a new era of connectivity and speed between all your distributed, smart home devices, so stay tuned for updates as the year progresses!
