What About 4K TVs? At CES 2013 we saw a lot of them , was the flagship product, the future of television after the invention of the 3D failed. But there is a problem, the same as always. I have the TV market with more resolution at home and I can not see anything of quality and adapted to it. At least in Japan have thought that the lucky owners could enjoy great content tailored to your TV for a month, and that Japan will broadcast the World Cup in 4K.
No doubt that this is done to support the technology and launch sales. In fact already been done in the last World Cup in South Africa which it issued some 3D televisions. It is often said that these big events like the Olympics or the World Cup or the European Championships serve to boost sales of televisions and which always presents some technology. Well here's another example.
The Asahi Shimbun reported that the Japanese Ministry of Interior will broadcast the World Cup in 4K (3840 x 2160) using communications satellites instead of the standard broadcast satellites. That is why this newspaper as 4K emissions come two years earlier than planned in order to boost sales of 4K TVs.
Given that the event is in the summer of 2014 and that prices of TVs we've seen at CES far from popular, I wonder how many people will be lucky to possess a television these. I see it more suitable for local and sports bars which if that could allow a major expense or could even get a grant from the brands.
Likewise, the problem persists because once the event is over normal emissions will become routine for these teams so that your investment is not worth much if you deserve. We'll see how sales respond.
