CES 2009: Samsung Shows 2160P Ultra High Definition TV's!

Hi everyone, Michael here with pictures of one of the most impressive things I saw at CES today: Samsung's prototype 82 inch LED Ultra High Definition TV (that's 3840 x 2160, or 8,294,400 pixels, compared to the 2,073,600 found in 1080p sets).

I found that I had to stand incredibly close to this gigantic set in order to discern the pixels--I had to practically press my face up against it. It seems ideally suited for stereoscopic 3D since the quality of a 3D experience very much depends on feeling immersed in the scene. And because you can sit close enough to this set to completely cover your peripheral vision without sacrificing resolution, the 3D experience would be spectacular.

Another reason to look forward to 4k TV's? Autostereo. The more pixels a TV has, the more that can be dedicated to additional parallax barrier / lenticular bars, potentially eliminating the annoying shifting effect that occurs when you change position in front of an autostereoscopic display.
