The 2013 Consumer Electronics Show or CES is most certainly going to have something big to exhibit. That something being an 85-inch Ultra HDTV produced by Samsung
, who claims it is "the world's largest commercialized UHD LED TV."
According to Mashable
, the colossal television sports 8-million pixels and a reported resolution of 3480 x 2160
. It was awarded one of the 27 International CES 2013 Innovations Awards
along with the company's Smart TV Camera. Namely, the tech convention's "Best of Innovation" award.
As TG Daily
reports, Ultra High Definition televisions, formerly dubbed 4K TVs, are more than likely going to be one of the most popular categories hitting the Electronics Show floor this upcoming January.
Not much is known about the gargantuan TV other than the aforementioned size, LED backlighting and highly powerful integrated audio.
Of course, where there is one company producing these behemoths there is bound to be plenty of competition as CNet
points out. LG has their own brand of UHD, albeit an inch smaller than Samsung's, dubbed the 84LM9600
. Anybody planning on attending the show should expect UHDs from a wealth of other companies as well.
Despite the breakthrough of Ultra High-Definition technology, though, prices are not expected to fall anytime in the foreseeable future. Samsung will unveil its take on the super large TV on January 7 at 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
