HD Guru’s 2014 CES Top Picks Awards | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


New categories like “Wearable Tech’ and “The Internet of Things” may be getting the most buzz at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show, but the real action (for us) remains in the TV sector.


Most makers have expanded their UHDTV product lines, with one even releasing a 4K OLED model.


And Smart TV interfaces have become more capable and refined.


For 2014, HD Guru awarded products in 7 categories covering everything from OLED TVs to soundbars, and topped things off with a Best In Show pick:


Best in Show:              Samsung U9500 LCD UHDTV

LG Claims World’s Largest OLED TV Title With 77-inch Ultra HD Set - Digits - WSJ

LG Claims World’s Largest OLED TV Title With 77-inch Ultra HD Set - Digits - WSJ | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


LG is making the first declaration of awesomeness with a triple threat:

The company says it will debut a 77-inch OLED television that will boast the Ultra HD resolution – 3,480 x 2,160 pixels – and a curved screen.

This makes it the world’s largest OLED set, says LG, an important bragging point because OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology promises unparalleled contrast and response time, not to mention the thinnest screens.

Instead of requiring a separate light source to illuminate pixels, like LCD TVs, OLED pixels illuminate themselves when they receive electric current.

OLED has long been the “next great thing” in the TV business – and at the CES show – but TVs based on the technology have been slow to hit the market.

As for that curved shape, TV makers argue that it offers a more immersive picture.

Massive Ultra HD and OLED TVs too rich for most consumers, but hint at what's to come

Massive Ultra HD and OLED TVs too rich for most consumers, but hint at what's to come | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

TV manufacturers that are making 4K Ultra HD and OLED panels will be the first to tell you that they represent the next wave of the future for TV technology, and it’s very likely that they do.


The prices will likely force most consumers to have to wait to upgrade but 2014 should offer better TVs at better prices, especially if there’s content to support 4K in the near term.


OLEDs already have the content support, but they are more difficult to produce in larger numbers, so it will be interesting to see what happens 12 months from now.


4K OLED could be the future, and concepts have already shown that it’s possible, but that is probably years away.

Eyes-on with Sony's brilliant 4K OLED monitor prototypes

Eyes-on with Sony's brilliant 4K OLED monitor prototypes | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


The 30- and 56-inch 4K OLED monitor prototypes that Sony introduced yesterday are sitting prominently in the company's booth here at NAB, and they're really quite something.

 

These sets offer wider viewing angles and reduced color shift compared to previous-gen monitors, and Sony is emphasizing the technology's color accuracy.

 

We got a taste of the 56-inch, 3,840 x 2,160 model back at CES, but it looks like we can extinguish all hopes of this monitor making it to the consumer market anytime soon.

 

Instead, it will be available to professionals working with 4K content.

We heard the warnings many times before - that Panasonic was pulling out of the plasma HDTV market.

The obituary for plasma was pretty much already written, then BAM!

Panasonic came to the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show and showed off the ZT Series, a top-of-the-line, KURO-killing set that changed the game one more time.

But now, it's official.

Panasonic will cease plasma panel production in December and end plasma sales by March 2014, leaving only Samsung and LG to keep making the flat TV that changed HDTV forever.
