The 2014 International CES which is scheduled for January7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada sent out a press release today that Ultra HD display technology for home will be the main event at the convention.
As Ultra High-Definition (Ultra-HD) technology takes center stage at CES, Sony, Panasonic, Samsumg, LG, Sharp and Hisense are a few of the manufacturers who will be showcasing this technology to the 180,000 visitors expected to attend the five day event.
Ultra HD was first launched at the 2013 International CES conference and forecasts Ultra HD unit shipments to increase eightfold to reach 450,000 in 2014.
Ultra HD delivers four times the resolution of today’s full High Definition TVs, with more than eight million pixels of resolution. The 2014 CES will discuss bringing UltraHD to market through its conference programming. CEA will produce “Ultra HD Content: What Will We Watch in 2014 and Beyond?” on January 7, 2014. “Seeing is Believing- 3D, 4K and UHD" will take place on January 9, 2014 and will be produced by the International 3D and Advanced Imaging Society, an official CES conference partner.
Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES and corporate business strategy, CEA places emphasis on the rise of this increased technology, content and consumer accessibility. She states that, “With more sets and content in the market, we’re eager to see the ground-breaking Ultra HD technologies across the 2014 CES show floor. Our show helped drive market adoption of major home video entertainment technologies including High Definition Television, OLED and Smart TVs. We are proud to continue this tradition as we shine the bright CES spotlight on the next great breakthrough in consumer video technology- Ultra HD.”
