Get Ready for Pricey ‘Ultra HD’ TVs

Every year at the Consumer Electronics Show, there’s a big television advance to spotlight. Whether it’s super-slim LED TVs, or 3-D TV or Internet-integrated “smart TVs,” manufacturers always coalesce around a trend and hope consumers will follow their lead.

This year is no different: A flood of 4K TVs is coming.

4K video, also known as “Ultra HD,” has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. That’s exactly four times the size of current 1080p video, and it’s seen as the next big leap for TV and video technology.
