Playing a 12" Laserdisc on a 4k TV

Playing a 12" Laserdisc on a 4k TV -

Looking for TV Make/Model for direct playback of Laserdiscs (& some DVDā€™s) on the now 1080p and 4k TVā€™s in say the 40ā€ to 55ā€ TV size. (leaning towards 49ā€ myself, viewing distance 70ā€-80ā€)

Many of my Laser Discs (several are Voyager, Criterion, Box Sets or Special Editions) are rare and hard to find.
I would like to play them directly to a TV and ā€˜not copyā€™ them onto a different media format.

Is the 2018 Samsung UA43N5500 or 2019 Samsung QA49Q60R or Other the best type of TV to buy that will better handle overall picture quality, with issues of upscaling, artefacts and other considerations?

Any thoughts on this is appreciated.

Media type is irrelevant. Its simply a matter of finding a TV with an input type that matches your player. Many newer TV's no longer have the legacy input formats and only use HDMI. So simply finding a TV with the right input is the first step.

They do make composite to HDMI adapters. They're really cheap and do as well a job as a tv would, since they are basically the same chip they stick in a tv.
