Even though getting a 1080p television set was a big jump for many people, a few people have started saying that getting a 4K screen in your home is a bit pointless since you can’t see the smaller pixels anyway. A quote directly from the article I’m linking to below:
“If you bought a 60” television, you’d have to sit about four feet away from it before you’d perceive the full benefit of 4K over good old 1080p.”
Perhaps the 4K revolution won’t come after all. Check out the article over at prolost.com.
Sony unveiled a groundbreaking TV today at the IFA 2012 in Berlin. They presented the XBR-84X900 which is one of the first TV models capable of showing 4K content (pixel resolution of 3840 x2160). No word on pricing yet but it will be a really expensive piece – and at this point you really can’t use all the pixels except for showing photos and making it act as a computer screen. And also keep in mind that placing a 84 inch beast in your livingroom can be a bit tricky, but if you can afford this TV you probably have plenty of space… At least it’s interesting to see that the 4K technology is making some progress!
