Nvidia Shield TV 2019 AI Upscaling

The long-waited Shield TV 2019 model released today, October 28, 2019. The 2019 model have the following that are most relevant when using it with TKaraokeUSB for karaoke purposes:

  • AI Upscaling of 720p and 1080p content to 4K
  • The all-new remote with accurate voice search, unlike the crappy old Shield Remote
  • Faster processor

So far I’m impressed with the Artificial Intelligence upscaling of the Shield TV 2019. The picture below illustrates what AI Scaling is all about.
