The adoption of 8K TV will begin to build momentum over the next few years, reaching 72 million households worldwide by 2025, a new report has said. According to a forecast by market researcher Strategy Analytics, sales of more than one million 8K TVs are expected in 2021 and around four million in 2022.

This will represent quite a jump from a slower than expected 2020 when just under 350,000 8Ks were sold globally.”8K TV sales did not reach the level that TV vendors may have hoped for in 2020, following a challenging year for the global TV displays market,” Edouard Bouffenie, Senior Analyst, Connected Home Devices, Strategy Analytics, said in a statement.

“Major 8K TV content showcase events such as the Olympic Games were delayed as a result of the global pandemic, removing a key opportunity for TV manufacturers to boost their 8K TV marketing messages.”

Moreover, prices for 8Ks are still very high, leading many consumers to think twice about whether now is the right time to upgrade, or hold off until prices inevitably fall over the next few years, Bouffenie said. North America will be the leading region for 8K by 2s025 with close to 25 million households owning at least one 8K TV set, said the report.

Differences in screen size preference will be a key determining factor in the uptake of 8K TVs in each region with the larger screen markets such as the US and China seeing the fastest rates of adoption.

“Long term 8Ks adoption will ultimately be driven by panel supply and the ongoing shift to ever-larger screen sizes,” said David Watkins, Director, Connected Home Devices, Strategy Analytics.

“As we saw with 4K, TV panel manufacturers are likely to switch entire production lines over to 8K as soon as it makes financial sense to do so. This transition will start with the very large screen sizes over 70-inches before trickling down into the 60 to 69-inch and even into some sub-60-inch sizes.” (IANS/JC)

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

New moms can follow the given tips to take care of their little ones and protect them from the harmful effects of harsh winds blowing outside.

By Dr Anil Batra

The winter comes with its own set of hassles. New moms have to be careful because they have to take care of themselves and their babies. It becomes imperative to protect babies from the harsh season. The immune system of newborn babies is developing, which makes them susceptible to respiratory infections. But, you can take preventive measures to keep your child warm and safe. Newborn babies need extra care until their immune system becomes stronger to protect their bodies from the harmful effects of viruses and bacteria that usually become more active in the winter season. A drop in the temperature can aggravate different processes in the body, therefore, moms need to take extra care of newborn babies during winters.

New moms can follow the given tips to take care of their little ones and protect them from the harmful effects of harsh winds blowing outside.
