Get set: 4K UHD is coming fast to a TV set near you | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


John McGrath of Rethink Studios, who’s always been giant steps ahead of the digital curve, has seen the future and it’s Ultra High Definition, aka 4K technology.

“It’s coming and it’s coming fast,” he predicts.

At 3840 x 2160, 4K Ultra HD is four times the total number of pixels on a full 1080p HD screen.

“All the technology is here, so we’re just waiting for affordable 4K TVs for the home and the cable boxes to deliver the content,” says 4K proponent McGrath.

“It’s going to be what 3D never achieved".

Will glasses-free 3D finally take off in 2014?

Will glasses-free 3D finally take off in 2014? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


A number of companies will be pushing the technology and its features at next month's International CES in the hopes of reigniting interest in 3D, a feature that many consumers feel is simply a fad.


The BBC's head of 3D, Kim Shillinglaw, said she believed 3D has so far failed to take off because it is not a straightforward process.


"Watching 3D is quite a hassly experience in the home. You have got to find your glasses before switching on the TV.


I think when people watch TV they concentrate in a different way. When people go to the cinema they go and are used to doing one thing -- I think that's one of the reasons that take-up of 3D TV has been disappointing."



Perhaps not needing to reach for the glasses for a truly immersive experience might change all of that.
