That beautiful 1080p picture you're enjoying? Well, you may as well just chuck it in the garbage, because Ultra High Definition is coming. Research firm In-Stat put out a report today saying that while it will take some time before the UHD market hits a critical mass of 5 percent household penetration, over the next five to 10 years, companies in the TV ecosystem will be able to experiment with business strategies to turn UHD into a strong business for the long haul.
UHD offers 16 times the resolution of Blu-ray along with 22.2 multichannel three-dimensional sound. Current proposals for UHD have the technology coming in two flavors: 7680 x 4320 pixels (8k resolution) and 3840 x 2160 pixels (4k resolution).
