Following their success of the G6 range of smart TVs in 2018, Skyworth has expanded their lineup with a range of AI-enabled products. The Skyworth team hosted select media, bloggers, clients and distributors to a prestigious conference at Emperor’s Palace this week to showcase the range, which includes a host of OLED-sporting panels.
The range of Smart TVs is the first of its kind in South Africa, with the launch of the AI TV proving that Skyworth brand is setting out to achieve what they’ve been aiming toward: to be the leaders in innovation. Skyworth were already the first official distributor to bring Android TV to South Africa, with this being the natural progression to bring AI TV to the country.
Along with a fully integrated voice-controlled interface in multiple languages, the range also supports Google Assistant as well as integration into other smart home devices such as Amazon Alexa and the likes. With the introduction of Skyworth’s Chameleon AI PQ Extreme chip, the AI technology allows it to search, recognise and reconstruct image objects, thus improving the picture quality precisely, based off specific AI algorithms, also adjusting colour performance in real time.
The range of Smart TVs launched at the event includes the S9: OLED TV, Q3C: UHD TV, Q20: UHD TV, E20: FHD TV and the KTV (Karaoke TV). Each of the TVs has been integrated with voice support, allowing users to converse with their TVs. Over and above conventional volume and channel controls, the TVs, with Google Assistant, can answer general questions such as the weather and more. The TVs also include a powerful built-in PQ (Performance Qualification) Processor, allowing it to display the best image and creating an exceptional user experience.
Leading the lineup is the S9: OLED TV flagship product, with its infinity display. The inclusion of the OLED technology adds a marked improvement over the previous generation of flat panel displays, which relied on backlighting to illuminate the screen.
In contrast, OLED TVs don’t require the same lights behind the pixels because they are able to light up on their own, which switch off completely when they’re supposed to appear black, allowing for better contrast ratios and deeper blacks during viewing. Other benefits of the OLED on the S9 is the reduction of the blue-light emitted from the screens, which could cause harm to your eyes over time, resulting in retinal injury, myopia and cataracts. With OLED not requiring backlight, it minimises this harmful light, making it the ideal choice for you and your family viewing.
The new range of Skyworth Smart TVs with AI and OLED-enabled products is set to launch within the next month or two as the technical teams conclude integration and certification of some built-in applications for best results, as well as the in-country manufacturing of complementary devices, which will launch alongside the range of TVs. Stay tuned for more news and reviews in this space in the coming weeks.
