Just when you finally have gotten all your HD TV’s and fully loaded cable or dish packages, the next generation is right around the corner and it is called “Ultra HD”. The Consumer Electronics Association announced the new name Thursday after its board unanimously approved the terminology. “Ultra HD is the next natural step forward in display technologies, offering consumers an incredibly immersive viewing experience with outstanding new levels of picture quality,” Gary Shapiro, the association’s chief executive said in a statement.
Ultra HD TV’s must display at least 8 million pixels, or a resolution of 3,840 by 2,160 pixels. The minimum aspect ratio must be 16:9, and Ultra HD TV’s must have digital inputs capable of carrying Ultra HD video content. These televisions are really meant to help benefit the larger TV sets that begin to lose clarity at these new massive sizes. Sony and LG are the first two companies that will really spearhead the Ultra HD TV’s. Both will have out 84” televisions by year’s end that will range from $20,000 to $25,000.
And so begins the new cycle. It seems as though not that long ago, HD TV was just coming into its own and new sets cost near in price to these ones. It’s only a matter of time before this new technology becomes the one that is obsolete. Who knows what the next major advancement will be. It seems like we won’t have to wait all that long to find out.
