The integrated AI Processing Unit (APU) of the Pentonic 700 supports MediaTek’s AI-Super Resolution, AI Picture Quality (AI-PQ) Scene Recognition, and AI-PQ Object Recognition technologies. These offer advanced edge smoothing and detail reconstruction. Moreover, Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail further improves picture quality by improving the contrast in bright and dark spots.
