4K TV resolution is now officially dubbed ‘Ultra High-Definition’
Have you ever wondered what might be better than high definition? While Apple has been touting Retina display technology on its devices for a while now, as far as the living room is concerned, it's all about 4K, which is now rebranded as Ultra High-Definition thanks to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) having officially voted on the new moniker. UHD boosts 8 million dynamic pixels with a resolution of 3,840 x 2160 and higher. The result is life-like, astonishing picture quality. This isn't like the 3DTV marketing craze that failed to live up to the hype--experts call this the holy grail of displays becoming reality. Several television manufacturers have already demoed their 4K Ultra HD display offerings at places like CES with high attendee approval of the new TV category. It's a sure bet that this upcoming CES 2013 in Las Vegas will see a more advance crop of Ultra HD televisions making their public debuts.
For perspective of the high density display, Ultra HD is roughly the equivalent of four 1080p displays combined into one. Pricing is not yet confirmed but expect to pay a premium price if you are wanting to be an early adobter of the Tv technology. Within time the price of UHD should go down as it becomes ubiquitous.
