Leyard will present the biggest ultra-high definition outdoor display in the world! 66.45 meters in width and 28.8 meters in height | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Leyard has joined hands with its long-term cooperation partner in North America to present the supersized outdoor P20 advertisement screen of 66.45 meters in width and 28.8 meters in height in the Texas Motor Speedway, setting a new world record.

It is twice higher than the American BIG TEX statue and seven times heavier than an adult elephant.


The screen area can accommodate three hundred and seventy-three vehicles and its volume will exceed two airliners.


Well, this is not a myth.


The screen is being produced by Leyard and will be put into use in the world in the spring of 2014.

Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q review: 24-inch UHD / 4K monitor Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q

Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q review: 24-inch UHD / 4K monitor Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


How this screen fares in practice has a two-fold answer. On the one hand text and images look incredibly sharp and detailed. Viewing high-quality photographs on this screen is a real pleasure.


Gaming on 4K resolution is truly a joy.


The incredible sharpness and outstanding colours definitely have added value, it's really something that needs to be experienced in person.


Current high-end graphics cards are not quite on the level of being able to provide smooth framerates on high quality settings, but fps-capped games can definitely be enjoyed in this resolution.


The future of PC gaming looks even more rosy on these types of displays.

110-inch television sets with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, or 3D support, or both, have been around for over a year, but this is still the largest consumer display size out there, so Samsung is bound to turn heads with it at CES 2014.

What is Triluminos Color on a 4K UHD TV?



TRILUMINOS is Sony's exclusive new technology that allows for far greater color tones and textures to be displayed on the screen.


In simple terms you could think of TRILUMINOS as simply a bigger box of color pencils to draw an image on the screen.


A conventional display only has a limited box of color pencils to draw an image, whereas a TRILUMINOS display has a bigger box of color pencils with more shades of Blue, Red and Green color pencils.


As a result a TRILUMINOS display can reproduce more natural colors thanks to the expanded color gamut and display various shades of colors closer to reality than a conventional display.


A TRILUMINOS display can output true, natural shades of colours – like hard-to-reproduce reds, greens and blues.


Faces look better, too, with rich, lifelike skin tones.

Seiki 50” 4K TV Makes Great PC Display for about $1000

Seiki 50” 4K TV Makes Great PC Display for about $1000 | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


It’s hard to believe that in just about a year’s time the cost of entry for 50” 4K TVs has gone from $20,000 down to about $1000!


While you wait for the broad availability of 4K streaming video content there’s another great use for these TVs: as an extreme PC display.


I recently got one of the Seiki 50” 4K Ultra-HD displays (model SE50UY04) and in this post I’ll share some experiences I’ve had with it hooked up to my HP Z820 PC running Windows 8.1.


And try it with your MacBook!:

Panasonic Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 Tablet Official


The Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 will feature a 20” display with a 4K UHD display resolution.

It will also be powered by an Intel processor clocked at 1.9GHz, with 256GB of SSD storage, 8GB of RAM, a USB 3.0 port, an SD card slot, and a smart card reader.

It basically sounds like you’d be lugging around a monitor with you all day long.

In any case give the tablet’s hardware specs, not to mention the 4K display, don’t expect stellar battery life as Panasonic estimates about 2 hours of use before its battery is depleted.


It will be available in early 2014 and will retail for US$6000.


Andre Bontems's insight:


Quite amazing!

Dell Unveils 32" Ultrasharp with 3840x2160 Native Resolution

Dell Unveils 32" Ultrasharp with 3840x2160 Native Resolution | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Dell recently pulled the wraps off their latest Ultrasharp 32″ display.

This gargantuan display is expected to be Dell’s flagship professional series monitor featuring an Ultra HD resolution of 3840×2160 (140ppi) based off of Sharp’s IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) display technology.

As expected of a Dell Ultrasharp display, the monitor will feature a wide color gamut of 1.07 billion colors, a whopping 64 times more colors than a standard TN panel based monitor.

No official word on pricing at this time although I’d expect the display to be priced somewhere in line with ASUS’s 31.5″ Ultra HD display, which currently runs for around $3,500.

Dell expects the monitor to be available in Q4 of this year.

Mark Treen's curator insight, July 28, 2013 10:38 AM

This is what you want to watch for as pixel counts go up. Does the gamut also go up. The TV's I saw were not ready for 4K simply for this reason.

Andre Bontems's comment, July 29, 2013 10:44 AM
I do agree! Thanks for your comment!
