3840 by 2160

October 20, 2005

CMO DisplayOk, I guess 1920×1080 just isn’t enough for some folks; who specifically I can’t tell you as the average American household still doesn’t own a 720p capable display, but that isn’t going to stop Chi Mei Optoelectronics from doubling the current peak HD resolution of 1080p.

CMO recently debuted their 56” 3840 by 2160 pixel, super display at the FPD International exhibition in Yokohama Japan. The initial “quad-res” offerings from Chi Mei Optoelectronics will be aimed at “TV junkies who want to watch four high-definition channels at the same time in full resolution” and the medical imaging market, according to a company spokesman.

I noticed two other interesting tid bits from the PCWorld article, the displays data transmission rate is about 1.4GB per second, and Japanese public broadcasting has already ran test transmissions at 4320 horizontal lines of resolution. The old cliché “You haven’t seen anything yet” barely begins to describe what we’re in for in the coming years.

    Obiously, you need high capacity disks to handle the new resolution. On the other hand, a competitive TV format is comming out that does 3D images while retaining the 1920 by 1080. I bet you that the resolution after this maybe 7280 by 4320, but by that time comes around, there would be a 360-angle TV. Ladies and Gentlemen, Star Trek Holodecks are close to reality!
