Tech.co.uk , 11 Jan 2008:
In a CES crammed with all manner of HDTVs, Samsung stands out from the pack with a prototype 82-inch "pseudo" Ultra HDTV, which has a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. (Note: 1080p has a resolution of 1920×1080.)
"Well, the good news here is that despite the preliminary trials in Japan, the technology isn't expected to become mainstream consumer technology for about another 20 years. So, for the time being at least you're perfectly safe with that 720p TV."
20 years is WAY too long and considering OLED tv's are already on sale in Japan, the OLED market can only keep growing. I don't think many people will be buying this kind of tv in the future.
Check my attached pics, since I was able to see the 27" model. 1000000:1 contrast ratio is oh-so beautiful!
What is the resolution of most OLED tv's?
i googled and found this (first result)
seems to be pretty impressive
Oled is not the future SED is.
I want an SED so bad. But between the two, OLED's are better. It's better visually ( contrast ratio, response time, etc), that's what it comes down to eh :P. However, SED's do have some advantage such as price/size (at the moment) and a longer lifespan than OLED's. But, if I had to have a choice, OLED's hands down. Thing is, SED'S ARE BEING DELAYED CONSTANTLY :(
DOPE... Just muff__(Kn DOPE.
Unfortunately the 'Ultra' part is short for 'ultra expensive'. I heard that you don't buy the tv using cash, but instead you exchange it for the deed to your house.
Nice comment. +1 bubble =D
Chad Warden has 3.
IDK if you guys went to CES, but this Ultra HDTV is fantastic! The picture was so unbelievably crisp and clear, it was remarkable! Just check out this picture.
nice picture, nice TV i wish i could have it :P
oh please. Can the rate of "invention of new technology" seriously slow down.
I just got a HDTV and now they want to bring out Ultra HD.
Maby this will be the "next gen" of TVs. I don't think HD DVDs or Blurays will have enough space for 2160p. Also this is a prototype. What do you think how long it'll take until someone can afford this? I think the "normal" HDTVs are good enough for me (for the next years)
What? You didn't hear about the Ultra Blu-Ray disks? 500gigs per layer. Might wanna Google search that.
"You didn't hear about the Ultra Blu-Ray disks? 500gigs per layer"... didn't you hear that HDMI as of today can only output 1080P? and supporting this resolution would mean having to wait until the technology is build on a HD drive to support such high ress.. and even worst... wait until a company dares to make movies for it... concidering the fect that this kind of ress only make sense for 80' TVs which will never.. never.. become mainstream... well... at least until we stop using TVs and people use walls instead.. ala bill gates home...
OH my goodness...the new Ultra-Blu-Ray players will communicate wirelessly to USB3.0WL (wireless version). Like dude...I thought we all knew that.
Btw, if you didn't realize I was joking to begin with...eh nevermind.
correct me if I'm wrong, but a higher resolution (higher definition) means that HD is old news, despite this TV just being HD in a higher resolution?
Increasing the resolution still makes it HD, just a higher resolution and I doubt this will become standard any time soon.
This story just made my bank account shed a tear. Also, after reading the previous posts, I find out that there are "OLED" TV's?? What the hell are those?? LOL
Only that it should be 100" with 3 meters viewing distance to see all the details..
Resolution depends on 2 things... screen size and viewing distance. I have a 61" 1080p tv. I would never buy this Ultra unless I was getting a screen about 90", it would be a HUGE waste of money.
lol, isn't 61" 1080p a bit of a waste of money as well?
I am happy with my 36" 1080i LG tv
the resolution is what now?! this will make real-life seem dull and pale in comparison
I can't see well past 3 feet things start looking blurry. Yes I need eye-glasses or maybe contacts. The thing is with this high level of detail you'd need like 20/20 vision or higher to notice the difference at over 10 feet unless it's 100+ inches.
In my case I see everything as a blur so HD ultra wouldn't look much better fore me.
Most people will be unable to tell the difference anyway. As a matter of fact, there is not much of a reason to go for 1080p in a TV smaller than 50 inches, as most people cannot find much of a difference from 720p.
I am pretty sure the human eye can spot the difference, but it is so small I think the human pocket will not be ready to buy it.
This makes me glad I got a lil Olevia 720p LCD HD-TV, it gets the job done, and by next christmas there will be something bigger, better, and cheaper.
My next by will be either a Sony, or Samsung brand.
When will we see it at retails?
Personally I am still waiting for a "solid" gaming LCD to hit the market in 1080p.
The thing that actually bothers me the most is Samsung should be working on trying to perfect(within reason) the 1080p genre instead of trying to invent a set that wont be needed for another 20 or so years.
Their 1080p 71f series is plagued with hardware issues that they don't address. They just moved into LED (81f) and while it's a solid set it still need work.
Most if not all LCD sets have problems running games properly. With motion blur, video lag, TBE, Mura, banding, stuttering, poor contrast ratio, pixel problems, etc.
When are these companies going to announce a 2ms or faster panel? That is what gamer needs an "ultra" fast a ms response.
I agree with ya that 2160p is dumb right now since people don't buy 100" tvs to put in their home.
Samsung's 71 series tho are f***ing amazing. I dunno what hardware issues you're talking about cuz mine works like when I bought it. As for response time, unless you're a PC gamer who plays on tvs as apposed to a monitor, the difference between 8ms and 2ms is negligible.
Think of the GPU needed to render stuff at that resolution @_@, you'd need a G100 10950GX2, with 4GB GDDR8 XD!!
why don't we just shoot the image directly into our retina and produce real life images. So when you watch a movie, it's like you're standing there watching it, only you won't be able to move and look around.
w/e im happy withmy Prima lcd tv(1080i)
OLED is cool be a few years off. Hottest products on the to fill the gap till OLED comes to mainstream will be Plasma and Laser TV. Laser TV is cool because it is an evolution to DLP and brings the cost considerably down and may even rival Plasma blacks (contrast). Cool things supposedly about Laser TV is that it brings larger than 50 inch screen sizes in the affordable 40" to 50" range without compromising quality, has insane longevity compared to their bulb cousins and Brightness should be just as good as contrast.
LCD will still be the cheapo standard for a little while but Plasma technology has not only improved on all its short comings (like screen burn in) the cost of manufacturing has come down considerably making it affordable for anyone.
I new Laser TV was coming and have been holding out till I see some products. CES I believe had a Mitsubishi 65" Demo on Display and onlookers where impressed.
Its either this or a Plasma 2009 for me
I'm a contrast junkie as well as color buff.....
