Voice assistants have been installed in our lives in a natural and progressive way . Talking to technology is becoming a common form of interaction with our devices thanks to these digital assistants based on technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, the cloud and mobile communications.
The adoption is being fast, something that we also see with other technological trends such as those that come from the world of television and multimedia content with the jump to 8K resolution.
Samsung, without going any further, has integrated voice as part of the possibilities of interaction with its devices since times before the attendees, and making it evolve until reaching Bixby . Samsung’s voice assistant, optimized and designed for your devices, is able to learn from users and adapt to them in a unique and personalized way.
Bixby, Samsung’s assistant
Bixby began its journey on Samsung smartphones . Gradually, the Korean company has been introducing the assistant in other product families, as in the case of Smart TVs .
Bixby allows us to communicate with our devices through voice using natural language instead of just using isolated commands. In the case of televisions, we can ask Bixby questions about the movies we want to see, when they show a certain show or cast data, and so on.
Through Bixby, on the 2019 QLED 8K TV range, we can even turn on the TV without using the microphone on the One Remote, as well as make changes to the device settings . For a few months now, Bixby has been fluent in Spanish, so the language will not be a problem.
In addition, Samsung has integrated compatibility with other assistants such as Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa in the 2018 models. Going to pixels, we are talking about values of, for example, 640 x 480 pixels for analog television and for media such as DVD.
This support arrived in 1996 with many bits under the arm and with digital content stored on optical media , although mostly reproduced at first through analog devices. The first flat-screen TVs arrived in 1988 and were 14 inches with just 300,000 pixels.
The rise of LCD televisions would not come until the 2000s, with resolutions 720p first and then 1080p. 4K (2160p) TVs arrived in 2013 and, for a few months, there have already been 8K (4320p) TVs from Samsung .
The Samsung QLED 8K family of televisions receives its second generation of technology in these weeks, with new functions, greater diversity of inches and next-generation connectivity.
The number of pixels associated with each resolution increases in a non-linear proportion with each quality jump. Thus, in 720p we have that each frame has a million pixels (or 1 Mpx). In Full HD we go to 2 Mpx. In 4K we have 8 Mpx and in 8K we have 33 million pixels) .
