CEA Updates UHD Specs

The Consumer Electronics Association Tuesday announced updated core characteristics for Ultra High-Definition (UHD) TVs, monitors and projectors.

The characteristics go into effect in September. Under the updated standard, display resolution must reach at least eight million active pixels, with at least 3840 horizontally and at least 2160 vertically. Also, aspect ratio is a minimum of 16:9, while such products must be capable of upscaling HD video and displaying it at Ultra High-Definition resolution.

“Ultra High-Definition TV is the next revolution in home display technology, offering consumers an incredibly immersive viewing experience with outstanding new levels of picture quality,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA.

“These updated attributes will help ensure consumers get the most out of this exciting new technology and will provide additional certainty in the marketplace.”
