Samsung: Going Past 1080p and Beyond

Samsung: Going Past 1080p and Beyond

Still boasting about how sweet your 1080p television is compared to your friend's measly 720p set? Well, here's your weekly dosage of ego readjustment therapy; Samsung just announced the first 63-inch 4096x2160 pixel plasma flat panel this weekend. That's right - double the 1080p. Enough high-def for ya?

"In order to reduce the pixel size, the barrier rib structure was slimmed down. Also, the cell structure, the transparent electrode and the bus electrode were reviewed. The commercialization schedule is not available at this point."

Yeah, well I think it'd be a bit difficult to mainstream consumers to even produce media in that resolution just yet (unless you count photography slideshows and timelapses). Still, it's good to know that there's always something new coming around the corner. Even though we'll admit 63-inches is probably a bit overkill.
