The Next Era of Televisions: Ultra HD

The Next Generation

It seems like every year there’s always something new that people buzz about.  In regards to televisions, new technologies are always on the rise.  Just look at the past decade: We’ve gone from tube TV’s to the emergence of projector TV’s and then finally flat screen TV’s such as Plasma, LCD, and the newer LED.  Not to mention the now-standard HDMI which has drastically increased picture quality.  It was just a matter of time before the next big thing hit the market and it’s going to make television displays all the better.

Samsung-ultra-HDTVCEA (Consumer Electronics Association) has announced the next generation of home displays.  Naming them Ultra HD (also known as 4k resolution), these new displays will have more than eight million pixels of resolution which is more than 4 times the amount in current HDTVs.  What does this mean for the consumer? It means that you’re going to look at your television screen and mistake it for an actual window.  That’s how fantastic these things are going to look and that’s how revolutionary this new technology is going to be. CEA has designated these displays to have an aspect ratio of at least 16×9 and a digital input cable of handling 4k video instead of up-converting.

The first companies to unveil these spectacular displays are LG and Sony which will both release an 84-inch set this fall.  However, as with every new technological gadget, it’s going to have a pretty steep price tag of $20,000 for the LG 84LM9600 and $25,000 for the Sony XBR-84X900.  If you can afford it by all means, go for it you won’t be disappointed.  For the rest of us, we might have to wait a few years until the price will drop and become more common on the market place.  CEA has guaranteed that the Ultra HD technology will be a highlight of the 2013 International Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas January 8-11.
