With the rapid development of the artificial intelligent digital society, not only mobile phones are now intelligent, but even many household appliances are. In the past, for the elderly, many smart home appliances were too complicated for them to operate and they could not fully enjoy the convenience of life brought by AI. From the foregoing, there is a need for TV manufacturers to cater to the needs of the aged. Here is where Oppo comes in. Oppo K9 is equipped with basic smart tv features for the elderly ones in society.
Recently, China conducted research on “Technical Requirements for Aging Design of Smart TVs“. This requirement points out that smart TVs should better meet the needs of the elderly during the operation and playback service stages, and have technical requirements around audio and spoken features.
In the future, smart TVs will also usher in changes in adapting to aging. It can be said that the smart era is accelerating the inclusion of the elderly in the scheme of things.
Why do we say that aging should be put into consideration by smart TVs manufacturers? In fact, we young people usually follow the trend of society and can easily meet our entertainment needs from mobile phones, computers or tablets.
For the elderly or the elders, a TV is always the best companion at home. Most elderly people unwind/relax by watching TV.
Nowadays, smart TVs are becoming more and more mature and innovative. Sadly, most smart TVs out there are still a little unfriendly to elderly users because many elderly people can’t use them! In terms of “TV for the aging”, some brands have already had a layout. I think OPPO is one of them. Oppo has always paid more attention to humanistic care. OPPO Smart TV K9 is also a testament to that.
The Basic Oppo Smart TV K9 Features That Make it Suitable for the Elderly
In this segment, we shall be appraising the basic smart tv features for the elderly as exemplified by OPPO K9 smart TV.
1. Oppo K9 Easy-to-Use Remote Control Layout
Basically, the remote control of the OPPO Smart TV K9 is very easy to use. The entire design interface is quite concise. The functions of the buttons are presented with simple and clear icons, which don’t look complicated.
Additionally, there are no extra or impractical buttons. This greatly reduces the difficulty of operation for the elderly and is easier to use. As we all know, the remote control can be said to be the first channel for the user to connect with the smart TV.
2. No Boot Ads on Oppo K9 TV
For the elderly, this will not only save time but also reduce the risk of advertising.
For example, you wouldn’t need to worry that your elderly one might accidentally click on the start-up advertisement, click on some paid links, or jumped to unsolicited advertisement details pages.
Obviously, many elderly people did not know how to log out. This is a headache for many people. The OPPO Smart TV K9 is obviously very user-friendly, eliminating the boot ads, instead, it offers one-click direct access to the TV main menu.
3. AI and Voice Interaction
OPPO Smart TV K9 has rich intelligence in voice interaction, which is also very convenient for the elderly to use. It is equipped with the ColorOS TV 2.0 system which has the powerful voice assistant function of “Xiaobu Assistant”.
The new version of “Breeno Voice assistant” supports dialects from all over the world and can recognize more than ten languages.
This feature affords the elderly at home the ability to control or turn on the smart TV with one touch using the dialect. Furthermore, they can search channels, change movies and search via voice. This smartphone function reduces a lot of pressure and obstacles.
Alternatively and without a remote control button, we can wake up Xiaobu assistant by saying “Hello, Xiaobu” at any location in the living room. It can not only search for videos by voice but also control other smart homes, which is very accurate and practical.
4. Sound and Image Quality of OPPO K9 That is Beneficial to the Elderly
For an aging smart TV, the sound and image quality is naturally very important, and OPPO smart TV K9 can also be said to be the best of both.
It is equipped with a metal full screen with a resolution of 4K and has passed the international professional HDR10+ certification.
Compared with other TVs that only support chip decoding of HDR images, the audiovisual effect is more shocking.
Moreover, the OPPO Smart TV K9’s screen covers 93% of the DC-P3 wide color gamut, and it also supports functions such as 1 billion colors and low blue light eye protection. The overall picture presents a strong visual impact.
In terms of sound effects, OPPO Smart TV K9 is equipped with dual 15W speakers with a frequency response range of 150Hz~15KHz.
This ensures a wider sound field and achieves a pure and clear sound. Even if the volume is turned on, there is no noise or sound distortion. For the elderly, OPPO Smart TV K9 not only has eye protection and a comfortable viewing effect, but the sound quality can also protect the ears, which is the best of both worlds.
Summary and Conclusion
We can see that in the era of artificial intelligence, smart products are convenient for young people to live and work, but for the elderly, many things are at a loss.
Therefore, it is imperative to help them bridge the “digital divide”. OPPO Smart TV K9 not only has powerful hardware and software configuration, but more importantly, it has added many functional points and design concepts suitable for the aged, so that the elderly can enjoy smart life.
