If you thought that 8K resolution will only been seen in TVs with several-meter diagonals, you are wrong.
During this year we expect our screens of smartphones, tablets, monitors and TVs become even brighter, sharper, more curved and capable of running 4K content and 8K resolution is seen as something that can be presented only on IT fairs, or is available exclusively only to rich people, such as the recently launched Sharp’s 8K TV, which is sold at a price of £ 863,787.
But the company Japan Display obviously want to send the message that the 8K future is perhaps much closer than we think, so they have just launched a 17.3-inch 8K (7680 x 4320) LTPS TFT LCD that can work at a decent frame rate of 120 Hz.
If you are wondering how many pixels it includes, we will tell you that it is a density of 510 ppi, and you do the math.
Japanese engineers claim that such high resolution is going to offer an element of the depth of the image, and will be ideal for video editing, medical displays, and even the screens designed for gaming.
If by any chance you are getting ready to visit Japan, you can visit CEATEC 2014 fair (7th 11/10/2015.) In Makuhara Messe center in Tokyo, where Japan Display will present this screen.
