There is a new competition running around in the digital segment, this time its not smartphones but smart TVs. One such company which is one of the largest selling TV brands across e-commerce platforms is Vu. They have launched some good TVs in the past. This time we are speaking of the 3 new range of TVs which Vu has brought in with a new technology which they are calling Vu VOD Upscaler. Let us check out, what exactly is Vu VOD Upscaler and if the new range of TV is something which you can buy.
Vu launches 3 TV range with Vu VOD Upscaler Technology:
Let us first clear the basics about the new technology, what it is, whether it is really required, and how it affects the quality of pictures.
Vu VOD Upscaler – Explained
All the VOD(Video On Demand) content provided by Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, etc is shot using the latest cameras using high-end VFX technology. There is a difference in the content which we watch on our television and the one which is shot using the high-end camera during production. This might be because of the internet connection speed and quality constraints. So the brand has worked on Vu VOD Upscaler technology which enhances both audio and video of the content using multiple machine learning algorithms which runs parallel to the DSP (Digital Signal Processor). This enhances the picture quality. One can imagine that the original video which consumes large storage memory is compressed and a lot of pixels are eliminated to make it small in size and easy to transmit. Vu VOD Upscaler uses algorithms to recreate those pixels from the compressed pixel which makes the video quality close to what was original. In terms of audio, it identifies the vocals and music and provides an option to user to emphasize on whatever is preferred.
My experience of watching Vu VOD Upscaler was quite good and the difference in audio/video quality was noticeable. Vu stealth launched this technology in the premium Android range of TVs, so the customers who bought this might have experience better audio/video quality, all thanks to Vu VOD Upscaler.
