The Consumer Electronics Show is a showcase of modern technology on a massive scale. This year’s event in Las Vegas was equivalent in size to 28 football fields, and filled with tens of thousands of new products or product announcements. If history is any indication, some of those products will go on to define their market category, or even change the way consumers live. Other products will fall by the wayside, failing to live up to commercial expectations, even with the boost of appearing at CES 2014.
In a few short years, high definition televisions have gone from an ultra-expensive luxury and relative novelty to an inexpensive industry standard. Prices have fallen so fast that profit margins for manufacturers have taken a significant hit. While this is great news for consumers, it’s not great for the corporate bottom line. Enter ultra high definition. This technology offers resolution four times higher than standard 1080p. Several large manufacturers, including Sony and Samsung, displayed ultra high definition sets at CES 2014. While the picture quality is fantastic, expect some sticker shock. Technology expert and Scottsdale, Arizona entrepreneur Jason Hope says we can expect this technology to soon see widespread adoption. “Once content providers start adding ultra high definition content to their offerings and prices start to drop, which they inevitably will, expect these televisions to capture a large chunk of the market.”
