Shelly Palmer Radio Report – December 6, 2013

Ultra HD sets – also known as 4K set – were the new new thing at this year’s CES, and we’ll see even more awesome advances in the technology at CES next month. The picture quality and color space are amazing, but watching 4K video displayed on a 4K screen that’s as wide as an NBA player is tall will make you want one more than hearing a list of specs ever could. These 4K sets have a minimum resolution of 3,840 × 2,160 pixels – that’s 8.3 megapixels, or four times the number of pixels of a 2K set, like the one you’ve got in your living room. But don’t get too hung up on 4K, because 8K sets are on the way, and they’ve got sixteen times more pixels than the set you have in your living room now. Forget home theater; we’re talking home IMAX. Ultra HD is the next big thing in the world of tech, and you’ll be able to see it all in Las Vegas next month at CES.
