SHIELD delivers AI powered upscaling, capable of intelligently scaling lower resolution video to your TV’s native resolution.  With this new feature, HD movies on Netflix or Prime Video will look sharper on your 4K display.

By default, “Enhanced” upscaling is enabled on your SHIELD. To enable “AI-Enhanced” upscaling, go to Settings > AI upscaling and select “AI-Enhanced”.

Detail enhancement is an “AI-Enhanced” only option and can be customized based on your own preference.  A side by side demo mode is available to compare “Basic” to AI upscaling.

Demo mode will let the user see the difference SHIELD's new scaling technology makes in real time.

  • Press the Settings button on the SHIELD remote to quickly switch between AI upscaling and Basic upscaling
  • Hold the Settings button to toggle the slider viewer
Resolution Upscaling
NOTE: AI Upscaling is not available for the following types of content:
  • Video resolution is less than 480p
  • Video frame rate higher than 30Hz
  • Video content color space is RGB

AI Enhanced upscaling will fallback to “Enhanced” in these cases
