CES 2013: Sony puts 4K front and center with the Sony 4K Ultra HD Video Player

1:16 /

At CES 2013 in Las Vegas, CNET's Jason Jenkins takes a look at the Sony 4K Ultra HD Video Player, essentially a small hard disk that stores your 4K content and is controlled by a tablet.

-Hey, I'm Jason Jenkins here at CES for CNET. And this is Sony's 4K Ultra HD Video Player. It's out in the spring, but there's no price yet. Inside, there's a hard disk which stores all your 4K contents. 4K looks a lot better than HD and this is going to be one of the first ways that you can actually get 4K unto-- unto a TV or a consumer can go out and buy this kind of thing and hooking it up to their TV. It's controlled with a tablet. We got here the Sony Tablet S and basically what you do as you scroll through all the different films in there, press the switch when you go on and off it goes unto the-- unto the TV. Now, what Sami is saying is that if you're one of the customers in sport, the 84-inch HD TV, you get something that's a bit different. You get sort of a PC, kind of a PC with it. And they're going to-- what they does is they're going to take that away from you and they're going to replace you with this thing that looks a little bit like a [inaudible] and this seems also going to bought too. To get new movies on there, you get a BD-ROM disk and you-- and just put it in the front. You don't download them. And what happens is it transfers everything to the hard disk and then off you go. So, that's it. It's Sony's 4K Ultra HD Video Player. I've been Jason Jenkins for CNET.
