The Next Big Thing at CES

CES proves that bigger picture and higher resolution means that Blu-ray will be more important than ever in playing broadcast content.

At this year’s CES, it looks as though bigger is better! Many of the large electronics manufacturers are focused on developing even larger TV screens while making them thinner with incredibly high resolution. Everywhere you look; there are 60″ and larger TV’s with 4K, and even 8K, Ultra High Definition (UHD) resolution. For those not familiar with what 4K means, and you’re not alone, in simple terms it’s nearly 4 times the resolution of what we’re currently familiar with as high definition. So, if current HD standards are 1080p, 4K TV’s are nearly 4 times that. That’s practically more vibrant and clearer than in real life!

These new UHD TV’s also spell a greater necessity for recordable media that can hold an incredible amount of content in order to play back UHD broadcasts. The format to hold the data already exists and it will be even more relevant with the advent of UHD content, than ever before. That format is Blu-ray and I think it’s time for it to become the dominant optical media format. So if you’re looking to jump on the 4K bandwagon, you’d better make sure you have Blu-ray content to play on it, or you’ll miss the picture entirely!
