Here’s whats coming at CES 2014 to make your home theater look antiquated | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Never mind that nobody knows exactly what to call it (Ultra HD 4K, 4K Ultra HD, UHD, just Ultra HD, or just 4K), the industry has settled on the next big thing for television and, unlike the tepid response 3D technology received in years prior, Ultra HD is in a strong position to take over in the years to come.


It won’t just be Ultra HD televisions that will be making headlines this year, either.


4K content and the means by which it will be delivered to viewers is also coming.

Will 4K (Ultra HD) Go The Way of 3D…and the Dodo?

Will 4K (Ultra HD) Go The Way of 3D…and the Dodo? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Nobody is in a position to answer the title question of this post.


What we can say is, Ultra HD has the ability to improve 1080p content noticeably on larger displays, and without glasses.


In that way, it has a leg up on 3D.


And, it’s really another rung in the ladder, of which “Enhanced Definition” was one (remember those fuzzy days?) followed by 720p/1080i, 1080p, 1080p high refresh, and of course 1080p 3D, though I think someone sawed through that last rung.


We step up to Ultra HD, but the ladder goes higher.


8K is out there, not in someones imagination, it’s really being done.


And I’m afraid 3D hasn’t taken it’s last bow either.


Buy an Ultra HD display today and get at least some picture improvement of your existing 1080p, but don’t hold your breath for real Ultra HD content.


And I wouldn’t pay up too hard, the ladder is, after all, still extending.
