CNET News Video: Gigantic TVs impress at CES

1:32 /

The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is in full swing. This year, some of the most buzzed about products are crisp, gigantic televisions that have a price tag to match. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on the sets that may end up in your living room in the not too distant future.

-Everywhere you look at the Consumer Electronic Show, it's screens, screens and more screens. -CES 2013 is all about TVs. We're seeing more bigger and expensive TVs than in years past. -But these televisions aren't just impressing with brawn and beauty. They're stuffed with cutting-edge technology like 4K ultra high def and OLED, and are finally ready to take home. -Well, 4K is actually inevitable so it's 4 times the number of pixels on a standard TV, which is about 10 EDP. So the idea is that you have a lot sharper picture. OLED is organic light-emitting diode and it's kind of a very thin technology and it really improves upon the current picture quality of plasma and LCD. -Every major television manufacturer at CES was showing off its offerings into this new entertainment frontier. -For customers that are looking for the best in color and black levels, OLED is really that product to go for. For somebody that's looking for the highest resolution at 8 million pixels, UHD is definitely gonna be that product. -Here at Samsung, they're not yet releasing the prices for these 85-inch UHD TVs but we hear that they're starting at $25,000. Not quite sure how many of them are gonna make it into our living rooms just yet. But perhaps smaller 55 and 65-inch models will when different manufacturers release them for a pretty penny later this year. In Las Vegas, I'm Kara Tsuboi, cnet.com for CBS News.
