Sharp Unveils New 8K Television Systems

Sharp Unveils New 8K Television Systems | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Every year at CES, companies are eager to push the limits to technology and have never been shy about unveiling new television products.


For those who don’t need 4K or want something bigger, well Sharp has something in store for you guys with their pair of 8K television sets.


Yup, you heard that right, according to Sharp, “4K today, 8K tomorrow.”


One of these 8K devices will be a glasses-free 3D television and was created together with Philips and Dolby to help deliver a very high-resolution glasses-free 3D viewing experience.


Given that 4K has yet to be the standard, we can only imagine the sharpness one might experience with 8K.


As we said earlier, not all these products are for sale and with Sharp’s 8K offerings, they are meant to be a “glimpse into the future”.

Will 4K Ultra HD Televisions Save Sony and Panasonic?

Will 4K Ultra HD Televisions Save Sony and Panasonic? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

 

Less than one year ago, Sony experienced an 18  percent decline in the sale of LCD televisions

 

Before that announcement, Sony confirmed its plans to layoff 10,000  employees.

 

At the same time, other Japanese display makers -- including Panasonic  and Sharp -- endured losses  that threatened to bankrupt their firms.

 

Sharp's internal outlook was particularly grim; last fall the company told Bloomberg  that it had "material doubt" that it could survive.

When you're surrounded by huge 4K TVs cranked to retina-damaging brightness, it\'s easy to get desensitized to the high resolution.

 

 

But, when you are standing in front of a 32-inch monitor (31.5-inch to be exact) at that same resolution, it's a whole different story.

At CES 2013 Sharp shows off 85-inch 8K Super Hi-Vision LCD HD TV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

At CES 2013, many manufacturers showed TVs with resolution of 4K Ultra HD.  In fact, HDTV models with 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution can be seen in the halls of almost all manufacturers.

 

Although bottleneck retardant Ultra HD (apart from the high cost) has lack of materials, even at such a high resolution. But Sharp went further.

  

Visitors of CES 2013 can see Sharp prototype display of 85 inches with resolution of 8K (7680 x 4320 pixels).

 

This is 16 times the resolution of Full HD.
