CES 2010: 3D is Everywhere! Plus 4K TV's & AMOLED from Samsung!

Michael here. I've been walking around the show floor of CES 2010 today, and 3D has been everywhere: Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, LG, JVC, Sharp, Toshiba, and more are all showing off their 3D TV lineups.

Four things caught my eye so far today : Samsung's AMOLED 3DTV's and the 4K TVs from LG, Panasonic and Toshiba.

The Samsung AMOLED has organic pixels which produce their own light. The displays are 31 inches diagonal and produced incredible images despite being only a few millimeters thick. I believe that OLED-type TVs are the wave of the future - it is only a matter of time until they are produced in larger sizes. I'd love to have one to coat an entire wall of my apartment!

See the Samsung OLED 3DTVs below:

Sony was showing off 3D OLEDs as well. Sony's screens were said to be 24 inches diagonal.

4K TVs are also drawing big crowds. So far I have seen a 152 inch Viera plasma from Panasonic, an 84 inch display from LG, and a 54 inch display from Toshiba. All are extremely impressive: you can easily imagine that you are not looking at a screen, but through a window into another world, or perhaps at a piece of artwork hanging on a wall.

The Toshiba was especially interesting as it demoed the processing power of its Cell processor, which was able to upgrade 2K content to psuedo-4K in realtime. The small screen size was also impressive: the smaller the screen, the more condensed the pixels have to be.

Of course, OLED 4K 3D TVs (at 48 or 60 fps) would be the holy grail!
