Technology has enveloped the world with feature packed smartphones to gaming consoles and even household appliances.

There is no stopping innovation and it continues at a rapid pace to change the way consumers interact in their daily lives.

While many people marvel at the advancement of devices and gadgets, none has undergone a more radical transformation that the television set.

For those that are not aware, the very first electronic television was invented by Philo Taylor Farnsworth, who lived in a home without electricity until the age of 14.

Since then, TV’s with advanced features have become the norm with Skyworth among the leaders when it comes to innovation.

The high-end television brand which was the first to bring Android TV South Africa, is now the first to bring AI TV to the country making imaginations become reality.

Brand manager Jaco Jobert says the recently launched S9 OLED TV creatively combines two cutting-edge technologies, namely Organic LED (OLED) and HDR.

“The combination of the two technologies is set to become the trend of the industry.”

Skyworth has limitless options when it comes to innovative features. Being an Android TV means that users have access to the Google Play Store as opposed to a manufacturer’s choice of content.

The Google Play Store currently offers approximately 30 000 apps and increases daily. The Android TV’s operating system is upgradeable, including all the apps on the Google Play Store. This means you can keep up with the best in apps, games and entertainment as and when they’re available in the country, without having to fork out on a new device.

Being an AI TV, the S9 can be controlled solely by the user’s voice. The range supports both Google Assistant and other smart home devices such as Amazon Alexa, turning your TV into your home’s control centre.

Obviously, you want the best possible picture quality and one of the S9 features that’s really created a buzz is the Chameleon AI PQ Extreme which is a picture quality improvement technology based on the PQ chip.

Chameleon AI PQ Extreme analyses object details based on AI algorithm and adjusts colour performance, particularly red, blue and green, in real time. This means that each pixel can perform at its most accurate and purest colour.

After a development of more than 28 years, Skyworth has grown to be one of the Top Five Colour TV brands in the world and a top brand in Chinese display industry market.
