SK Telecom and Samsung Electronics Join Forces to Realize 8K TV Powered by 5G Network
09/09/2019
  • The two companies signed an MOU to jointly develop and commercialize the world’s first ever 5G-8K TV
  • The companies will also bring new user experience by working together in the areas including eSpace and 5G-Sero TV

SK Telecom (NYSE: SKM) announced that it signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Samsung Electronics to jointly develop and commercialize the world’s first 5G-8K TV. The 5G-8K TV will revolutionize users’ television-watching experience by directly receiving 8K video over SK Telecom’s ultra-low latency and ultra-wideband 5G network.

*8K (7680x4320 resolution) is the highest resolution currently in existence, a fourfold enhancement of UHD standard.

 

SK Telecom plans to apply Mobile Edge Computing and Network-Based Media Processing to its 5G network to realize seamless transmission of 8K video. Samsung Electronics will apply its 8K AI Upscaling and next-generation codec technologies to upgrade full HD and UHD images to 8K resolution. The company will also equip 8K TVs with 5G dongles to support direct transmission of 8K resolution video content.

 

Viewers will be able to watch video content of POOQ* and oksusu at 8K resolution.

 

*POOQ is an over-the-top video sub__scription service offering programs on terrestrial TV. It is a joint platform of Korea's terrestrial broadcasters.

 

The two companies have also agreed to jointly evolve 5G-8K TV further to deliver a new user experience by working together in the areas including eSpace, SK Telecom’s hyper-space platform for replicating the real world in cyberspace, and 5G Sero TV, a 5G-based television that can be rotated both horizontally and vertically to provide a smartphone-like UX for TV users.

 

Moreover, they plan to develop B2B business models in areas of smart office and digital signage by adding 5G connectivity to televisions and displays.

 

Meanwhile, SK Telecom introduced technologies related to ‘5G connected screen’ at an MPEG held in July 2019 and was designated as the NBMP (Network Based Media Processing) chair company to lead international standardization of 5G connected screen related technologies. To this end, SK Telecom will newly open Hyper Media Lab under its ICT R&D Center.

 

“The 5G-8K TV is the culmination of ultra-low latency 5G networks combined with ultra-high definition TV technology,” said Park Jin-hyo, Chief Technology Officer and Head of ICT R&D Center at SK Telecom. “5G technology will help make the world of hyper media a reality.”
