4K Ultra HD television adoption will happen faster than anticipated

4K Ultra HD television adoption will happen faster than anticipated | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

Despite being tempted by a number of great deals on televisions during Black Friday, I’ve already made up my mind that the next set I purchase will be 4K Ultra HD compatible.


4K Ultra HD televisions are expected to be the next big thing in home entertainment.


Unlike the short-lived 3D fad, 4K televisions will deliver real value with four times the resolution of current HD sets that populate the majority of households in the US.


Samsung is leading the way as it has increased its 4K television lineup from just three models last year to 10 this year, ranging in size from 50 inches up to the 110-inch monster that was on display at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.


Industry experts predict that just under half a million 4K sets will be sold this year versus just 60,000 during 2013.

A 55-inch, Android-Enabled 4K UHD TV for £550? What’s the Catch?

A 55-inch, Android-Enabled 4K UHD TV for £550? What’s the Catch? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


The catch is you’ll be handing your money over to the new kids on the block, Kogan, rather than the stalwart likes of Samsung or Sony. 


But that shouldn’t be too much of a concern, with the Australian manufacturer making a name for itself in the UK for offering high-end tech at low-end prices.


So what’s £550 bag you, in detail?


Andre Bontems's insight:


This is the cheapest we have seen for a 55" UHD!

Will Your Next TV Be Ultra HD?

Will Your Next TV Be Ultra HD? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Unlike the 3-D TV trend, which quickly eroded into a tech fad in recent years, analysts say Ultra HD may actually catch on.


With screens that house four times more pixels than regular HD TVs, Ultra HD is a simple enough upgrade to gain widespread adoption in the next few years.


Aside from being visually jarring, 3-D required sometimes pricey special glasses and gave some people headaches.


Because Ultra HD content can be delivered over a standard high-speed Internet connection, it isn't likely to get bogged down in a format war that plagued the Blu-ray disc standard.

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.

4K Ultra HD was such a prominent theme throughout the year 2013 that we felt it deserved its own category.


And Panasonic’s TX-L65WT600 stands head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to both specifications and performance, at least until new UHD models are announced when CES 2014 rolls around next week.
