Gigantic TVs impress at CES
-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.
