Forget 4K, it's an 8K TV you Want!

Forget 4K, it's an 8K TV you Want! | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

4K has been the talk of CES and looks likely to go big in 2014, but is it needed?


Invest in 4K now and you can be sure that it'll only be a few years before a more expensive 8K set, with 8K movies, seems necessary.


Such is the rate at which formats evolve now that HD TV is pretty much still a teenager by TV standards.

Here's what your UHD-TV will look like

Here's what your UHD-TV will look like | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


About 75 new ultra high definition (UHD) televisions are expected to be showcased here at CES this week, along with promises by content providers of more 4K digital content to feed them.


UHD-TV offers almost four times the resolution of mainstream 1080p flat screens, and about 500,000 of them are expected to sell in the U.S. this year, according to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA).


That's up from 60,000 UHD-TVs sold in the U.S. last year.


BY 2015, that number is expected to more than double to 1.25 million sets.


TV sales are picking up as consumers begin to replace their first flat-screen HDTVs, but don't expect a significant surge in sales of UHD-TVs this year.

Netflix says video streaming in ultra-high definition will "just work" for buyers of new UHD sets from Sony, LG, Samsung, Vizio and others.

That's because Ultra HD models from those makers will include the Netflix app and chips that decode signals in the so-called High Efficiency Video Coding standard, or HEVC.

Panasonic aims to turn corporate channels onto Ultra HD

Panasonic aims to turn corporate channels onto Ultra HD | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Panasonic is taking a turn with its TV development focusing more on retail and corporate customers than traditional retailer channels.

As an example, Panasonic announced that horse track Churchill Downs will display a new 171-foot by 90-foot tall 4K video board before this year's Kentucky Derby, at its press event here at the Consumer Electronics Show Monday.

Panasonic officials stressed the company's plan to provide Ultra HD and OLED displays for film production, signage and security systems "and even casinos like here in Las Vegas," said Rance Poehler, president of Panasonic Systems Communication Company.


NOTE:

The picture is an illustration of what Panasonic's 171-foot wide by 90-foot tall Ultra HD video board will look like at Churchill Downs.

While there may not be a lot of content available in 4K yet, the extra resolution certainly makes a lot of sense for people working in creative jobs such as photography, videography/cinematography, architecture and design.


At CES 2014 in Las Vegas, Philips has presented a new 28" monitor that sports 4K resolution and is surprisinglyaffordable.


Estimated retail price: US$1,199

"Usable" Workspace Resolution at 4K UHD | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


With all the talk at CES being about 4k and a number of new options having come out in the last month and about to hit the table, I wanted to follow up with a discussion about how physical monitor size really matters if you want to use that additional resolution to increase your workspace resolution.

...

Personally I think 50" is the sweet spot but you gotta have a huge desk for that.
