Post CES 2007: Westinghouse to show Quad HDTV

Not a lot of info... gleaned from Tom's hardware.

Westinghouse is the first company to announce that it will have such a TV on display at its booth. It will be based on LCD technology and come with a 56" panel. According to the company, the TV will use 2160p resolution (3840 x 2160 progessive) and offer "stunning, never-before seen picture reproduction."

Guess that leaves both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players in the dust.

As with lots of recent display anouncements, belive it when a production set gets a real review.

Why does this effect disk formats?

NHK of Japan is working on Ultra High Definition Video.

Guess that leaves Wetinghouse in the dust...

What difference does it make?

There is no content, and won't be for a very long time, at those resolutions--just think of the horrendous compression that would be necessary to store a movie or video program at that resolution.

Just what we need, macroblocking and jaggies in ultra-high-definition

Heh, and all those TV personalities are worried about 1080p?

Neither of the player standards are up to this task... and as someone else mentioned, the 'osbourne', effect. People want the best/highest res... even if there is no media, holding for the day it might be. As you've noted; don't hold your breath. I don't believe that 2160p resolution is a HD 'standard' and yet here's a manufacturer who is bringing this new format to the CES which will wow the consumer and create impossible demands.

Just more dust to settle out..

I agree...this is a non-issue. Why would one invest in that high of a resolution with no content to support it for the foreseeable future?

Another pie-in-the-sky project.

The only application I can see is "image tiling". Similar to Sony's split screen option, one can have four 1080p images tiled on the screen for use in bars. Then Westinghouse's use of the term "Quad" would make sense.

This is really old news. They showed this set last year too. It must be ready for production now.
