Next Step Up for TVs: 'Ultra HD'

TOKYO—Convincing consumers to trade in bulky old-school televisions for slim, high-definition models was a huge success story for the TV industry. Now manufacturers are angling to kick off another buying spree.

They are gearing up to promote what the industry calls "ultra high-definition" televisions, or UHDTVs, which promise four times the resolution of existing TVs and are likely to be a hot topic at next week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Such TVs create images using more than eight million pixels, compared with about two million pixels of today's full high-definition televisions. At the moment, however, a major obstacle stands between consumers and sharper pictures: price.

The stratospheric price tags—often the case with new technology—don't worry some industry watchers, who recall that HDTV sets, cellphones and other products were initially out of reach of most consumers but became hits as prices declined.

Re: Next Step Up for TVs: 'Ultra HD'

1080p TV's are nearly as sharp as computer monitors at this point (which you sit less than three feet away from). How much sharper can an image get when you're in the double digits in feet away from the screen? This could only really be beneficial with very large TV's which already carry a tremendous price tag. Diminishing returns will occur very rapidly.

Shitty big screens used to cost like 10,000 bucks, now a 1080p 50 something inch TV costs like 800 bucks at Sam's. It's all in retrospect.

Mario Kart on a 145 inch tv would be pretty sweet.

They'll probably make Ultra Blu Ray too, so people will have rebuy their movie library.

I'm cool with my blu ray player and regular hd tv for now.

Re: Next Step Up for TVs: 'Ultra HD'

There's nothing wrong with the quality of TV, what they should be working on, is features for TVs. Make things faster, built in DVRs to TVs, entire walls in houses are TV screens(not TV screens the size of a wall,but actual walls that are TV screens) and stuff like that.

Re: Next Step Up for TVs: 'Ultra HD'

I don't think people will be clamoring as much once everyone has a slimmed down tv, what drove the last success wasn't the defintion, it was getting rid of your old tube tv.
