Forbes Highlights Energy Workaround for 8K TVs in Europe
As we have been reporting for several months, the EU has removed special exemptions for 8K TVs that were threatening the possibility of shipping 8K sets in the region. In December, we highlighted one way of getting around the regulations, by changing the ‘out of box settings’. Now Forbes and others have highlighted that Samsung will have a new ‘Eco’ mode that has very low luminance and will allow the sets to meet the regulations and continue shipping. Although there has been some concern expressed that consumers may end up with a worse picture than they might, we expect retailers to be aware of the potential issue and inform customers appropriately.
