8K television is no longer a novelty, but cameras definitely are. While Samsung and LG continued their foray into 8K televisions at IFA this year, Sharp went a step further announcing exciting releases for the European market.
The Japanese-Taiwanese company announced the upcoming release of the smallest 8K video camera in the world and a line of audio products with DTS Play-Fi the renowned audio wireless ecosystem.
Next year, those of you who want to feel the sound and experience every vibrant tone in their multi-room house will be able to do so with DTS Play-Fi for Sharp. A 5.1.2 immersive Sharp soundbar with this technology from DTS is the highlight of this fall and could be in your hands next year.
Why is that important? It just gives you a wider range of options when it comes to experiencing sound at home. Simply put, you can hear the richness of audio with zero lag no matter in what room you are or are moving into. Surround sound will immerse you in the music or movie you will be watching.
If you’re not alone, app-based headphone streaming will give you the opportunity to still enjoy your viewing, regardless of the noise nearby.
“We are excited to work with UMC to bring DTS Play -Fi enabled Sharp soundbars and speakers to the European market. Our wireless technology gives consumers the freedom to create multi-room audio and surround systems that work seamlessly together and without limitations. We expect this level of seamless connectivity to rapidly transform the smart home, with DTS Play-Fi leading the way.”, said Dannie Lau, General Manager DTS Play-Fi.
Indeed, Sharp isn’t the first and definitely will not be the last one to embrace DTS Play-Fi for its range of audio products. TPV is also set to bring the technology to its future soundbars, speakers and TVs so you’ll have plenty of choices with the multi-room audio experience.
As for the 8K camera, if you’re an avid videographer or a camera aficionado, don’t worry; Sharp will certainly release it on the European market next year.
With a 33MP Micro Four Thirds sensor, a touchscreen of five inches and 10-bit 8K@30fps, it sounds like too good an opportunity to pass up; at least for professional filmmakers that have quite a budget to spend.
