Concept Samsung 82-Inch LCD World's Largest Ultra High-Definition

Illustration for article titled Concept Samsung 82-Inch LCD Worlds Largest Ultra High-Definition

Samsung has just popped out a ridiculously large 82" LCD TV, boasting ultra high-definition resolution of 3840 x 2160. That is a four-times increase on conventional LCD standards, and word on the street is Japan has already begun testing video broadcast in ultra high-definition. We are sure that'll eat bandwidth faster than the cookie monster (Chris) eats cookies. That aside, the picture rendition is jaw dropping.

@halopower67: If you're talking about the NHK demo, that's double this again. NHK was doing 7680 x 4320, wheras this 'UHDTV' is only half the resolution of that demo. NHK said they were working on (or maybe already have) doing live transmission, though I'm not sure (at least uncompressed) that it can be done wirelessly. The cameras used 16 HD-SDI connections, which run at a bitrate of 1.485 Gbit/s.
