LG calls out Samsung, again

Sept 26,2019
Lee Kang-won, LG Electronics’ Vice President of TV software development, compares LG’s 8K OLED TV on the right and Samsung Electronics’ 8K QLED TV, playing the same 8K resolution YouTube video at LG Twin Towers in Yeouido, western Seoul, on Wednesday. Samsung’s 8K TV is playing the video in 4K resolution because its software doesn’t support YouTube’s 8K video codecs, Kang said. An LG device called the “Upgrader” allows its TV to play the 8K videos. [LG ELECTRONICS]
