One more year, CES 2022 is coming to an end, leaving us with new and innovative proposals from manufacturers. Although it is a technology fair in which we see advances in concepts still in development, it is also usually here when companies show their new line of televisions. In this article we have summarized everything we have seen in this sector.
Panel technologies such as QD-OLED, MicroLED and MiniLED have been the protagonists of this event, and Everything indicates what will be the norm in the highest range of televisions for this year. Below these lines we leave you the proposals for 2022 from the main manufacturers.
Samsung: MicroLED up to 110 inches and 8K
The company inaugurated CES 2022 with its new line of MicroLED televisions, offering up to 110-inch panels and 8K resolution. With 25 million micrometric-size LEDs as a backlight system, and a 20-bit gray scale depth, these televisions are crowned as the most premium that Samsung will offer this year, not counting the QD-OLED, its own technology that curiously has featured Sony before.
They also offered information on their upcoming Neo QLED televisions, a preview of MiniLED technology already seen over the past year. With improvements to its Neo Quantum processor, we now find features that improve control and the way in which the brightness of the LEDs is emitted, in addition to advances in sound.
From Samsung they also showed its new generation of televisions The Serif, The Frame and The Sero, which now incorporate a matte layer on their panels to avoid reflections and fingerprints. And along with it, improvements in Tizen OS such as its new ‘Gaming Hub’, or the possibility of calibrating the TV automatically.
LG: New Line of OLED evo and QNED MiniLED TVs
The Korean manufacturer has dominated the sector for years with its OLED technology, and since last year we have seen progress in these panels with its OLED evo. Now they come back with a whole new line of televisions with up to 8K resolution and more brightness on your panels, being the Achilles heel of this technology.
The company also focuses on a more gaming-oriented field with your new 42-inch LG OLED evo C2 TV, a size that we will see more and more and that will serve to complete those most demanding setups. However, their sizes also go up to 97 inches, as is the case with its G2 range, which also includes ‘Brightness Booster’ technology for an increase in peak brightness of up to 1,000 nits.
As for its QNED MiniLED range, LG continues to bet on this technology, offering models with up to 2,500 dimming zones and greater control of their brightness and contrast. In this way, we would be talking about LG’s most advanced LED panels to date.
LG also introduced new features in webOS, such as adding profiles, or the ability to wirelessly share cable or satellite content (Room-to-Room share) being viewed on a television.
Sony: first QD-OLED TV on the market and an entire Bravia XR line by 2022
Much of the prominence was taken by Sony when it announced the first QD-OLED television on the market, a technology that, curiously, belongs to Samsung. The firm also showed a whole range of OLED, MiniLED and LED panels, with a very complete offer for 2022.
QD-OLED is a technology that combines the quantum dots of QLEDs with OLED organic diode technology. For this, a matrix of nanocrystals is used, also promising a higher level of brightness. Its A95K thus becomes the reference model of the firm, offering sizes of 55 and 65 inches.
Regarding its MiniLED technology, we find proposals such as the Sony Z9K, with 8K resolution and sizes up to 85 inches. The firm has taken longer than its competitors to offer MiniLED panels. From Sony they assure that it is because the increase in brightness that is achieved with this technology is usually accompanied by halo effects and greater ‘blooming’.
The firm has also opted for OLED panels with new 42 and 48 inch sizes, serving as another alternative to play. And we have also seen improvements in its remote control and its ‘Bravia Cam’ camera for video conferencing and panel calibration.
Panasonic LZ2000: the firm’s commitment to OLEDs
From Panasonic they have also revealed their flagship, the LZ2000. The company incorporates in this television an OLED panel from LG, albeit tuned by Panasonic itself. According to the manufacturer it has ‘a meticulous color calibration worthy of the best production in Hollywood’.
The television It will hit stores in 55, 65 and 77-inch versions, also offering advanced sensors with which to detect the color temperature of ambient light and adjust the image, or improvements in brightness that aim to surpass conventional OLEDs in this regard.
The LZ2000 also supports Dolby Vision IQ, Dolby Vision, Filmmaker Mode, HDR10 + Adaptive, and HLG Photo. But it is not only in the image where we have seen improvements in this television, but also also offers a renewed audio system with front speakers, 306-degree audio and Dolby Atmos support.
Hisense: New line of ULED televisions with MiniLED panel and up to 85 inches
From Hisense they have also offered news at this technology fair, with a whole new line of ULED televisions and price range. The manufacturer also has made the leap to MiniLED with its Hisense U9H, with a size of 75 inches, 4K resolution and 120 Hz frequency.
From the reference model, Hisense is eliminating features until the price decreases in each of its models. Like the UH8, a high-end but with less maximum brightness, or the U7H, which no longer features MiniLED technology. Finally, the firm also presented its most economical range of ULEDs, the UH6, which also includes a panel of quantum dots, but lowering the frequency to 60 Hz.
All these models will arrive with Google TV as the operating system, something that is becoming more and more common. However, the firm will continue to offer televisions with VIDAA OS. This new line of televisions hit stores this summer, starting at $ 579.99.
