If you want to have an 8K consumer-focused TV on shelves, you'll need the 8KA logo which can only be stamped on if you meet the minimum specs in resolution, frame rates, luminance, and codec/interface support.

8KA Executive Director Chris Chinnock said the new spec-backed certification program will be a "critical step in the growth in next-generation video technology". 8K TV makers will need to meet the new 8KA technical specifications which stand as:

  • Resolution: 7680 x 4320 pixels
  • Input Frame Rate: 24p, 30p and 60p frames per second
  • Display Luminance: More than 600nits peak Luminance
  • Codec: HEVC
  • Interface: HDMI 2.1
  • Additional performance and interface specifications (available to 8KA members)

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
