The golden rule of the CES is the innovation and the constant improvement of what already exists in the market. Sony doesn’t go against this rule since the company will showcase 3 new Ultra HD 8K TV screens. Until now, only Samsung was offering an 8K TV screen, the Q900R. Sony is said to complete its venue at the CES 2019 with an 8K camcorder for professionals and a video projector. By the way, Japan launched the very first 8K TV channel the 1st December 2018. We let you imagine the image quality.

There will be one mode to entertain the passengers while the car is on the road, and a fully-immersive mode when the car is parked. This project is said to be linked to the “Audi meets Disney” partnership for the CES. We’ll be certain on January 8th.
