Opinion: Leading Up to CES – 4K HDR & 8K
As CES time approaches, keep an eye out in the popular press for the electronics industry to push 4K HDR and 8K (LG is pushing both, their 8K is a 96-incher).
The real issue for electronics manufacturers is that many folks, including Shelly Palmer, believe that it’s still too soon for 4K, and that you should buy a 2K (HDTV) with the fastest refresh rate you can afford.
This begs the question: For how much longer will manufacturers continue to make HDTV sets that are “almost” as good as 4K sets, except for resolution and HDR.
This will be an interesting CES (notwithstanding if VR will be the next 3DTV).
