CES: The future of TVs -- bigger, better resolution, and bendable
-At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, new televisions are bending the rules.
Both Samsung and LG unveiled shape-shifting concepts that switch TV screens from flat to curved with a remote control.
-Having a display that is flexible.
It is powered by a motor that enables you to control and create that curvature on the television.
-There are plenty of products for anyone
who wants to throw their TV-watching for a curve.
-The wider field of view and panoramic effect draws viewers in.
The TV seems even bigger than it is.
-I've seen it in person and it just looks a little bit distorted to me.
Televisions that pack more pixels.
-I can't stop talking about 4K.
I tell everyone it's like looking out a window.
-Companies boasted displays with Ultra High Definition and 4K technology.
But don't let the tech
jargon confuse you.
-They both refer to televisions that have much higher resolution than 1080p televisions.
The flip side of that coin, of course, is you really can't see the difference between a 1080p television and a 4K, or Ultra HDTV 'cause that's really small pixels and you have to be really close to appreciate that extra sharpness.
-Really small pixels on really enormous televisions.
At a whopping 105 inches, the Samsung set is one of several oversized models.
-And of course, at the show people bring in these gigantic TVs that's 105, 120, 110-
inch televisions that are there.
Those are prohibitively expensive, something on MTV Cribs, but they are, you know, there and they're pretty cool-looking when you see 'em in person.
-Proving that sometimes bigger is better especially at CES.
