With No 4K Content Available, Vendors Stress Upconversion Technology
Also set for display is a 95-inch Super Hi-Vision (7680×4320) LCD screen developed by Sharp with NHK. Videophiles may bite on the 4Kx2K screens, but news that 8Kx4K screens are somewhere around the corner may inspire some high-end home-theater owners to hold off on investing in higher-resolution formats in the near future.
Sharp will show the new sets in its booth at CEATEC, which runs October 4 through 8 at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, on the outskirts of Tokyo.
Panasonic will be at the show, too, pushing hard at 3D – VIERA televisions, DIGA Blu-ray players and recorders, and a LUMIX twin-lens 3D camera. And Toshiba will likely be promoting its recently unveiled glasses-free displays, which we recently reported on. No word on what Sony will be showing in the video realm; its recently unveiled Tablet S will likely have a strong presence.
