AUO’s 85-inch 4K 240Hz TV is the ultimate centerpiece of PC or console gaming
There are a couple of things to be learned from these specs, which are some of the very few details that AUO has apparently only shared with DigiTimes Asia (there is no official press release or product page for this new TV yet). Starting with the 240Hz refresh rate, I’m Hoping this is a native measurement, but it could very well be a measurement obtained through a smart processing technique.
TV makers usually do this through a technique called frame interpolation, which can have different marketing names like TruMotion (LG), MotionFlow XR (Sony), etc. This is part of what causes the so-called soap opera effect.
The site also mentions “ultra-high dynamic range” and 96 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. What exactly is Ultra HDR? I guess it’s a mix of terms and technologies, those being 4K Ultra HD (resolution) and HDR support. The bigger question is, what kind of HDR support? It can be Dolby Vision, HLG and / or a mix of HDR10 formats.
Finally, the other thing mentioned is a special anti-reflective coating. Depending on the implementation, this can help visualize in bright environments, such as a living room where sunlight enters through medium-sized windows.
