Even if you believe that 4K TVs are stupid, like we do, that won't stop manufacturers from churning out numerous examples of the shiny new, higher-resolution TVs at the Consumer Electronics Show next month.
Tied for the biggest we've heard of so far is the 110-inch 4K LED TV announced by Westinghouse yesterday.
That size will join 50-, 55-, and 65-inch 4K models in the company's booth. Few other details, aside from a 120Hz refresh rate and shipping information, were revealed. The 110-incher will be available as a custom order in the first quarter, says the company, while the smaller sizes will hit retail shelves around the same time.
I was told separately (and as yet unofficially) by Chinese maker TCL that it would also debut a 110-inch 4K TV at the show, and at the time it billed the size as the "world's largest" 4K TV. Since the official Westinghouse press release does not use that language, perhaps we'll see an even larger 4K set at CES. For what it's worth, TCL also said its TV would be 3D, and I assume the Westinghouse will, too.
Speaking of China, Middle Kingdom TV giant Hisense also announced 4K TVs earlier this year, at 50, 58, and 65 inches.
The 4K moniker, now officially known as Ultra High Definition or UHD, denotes a native resolution of 3,840x2,160 pixels or higher. Nearly every current TV is 1080p, or 1,920x1,080 pixels, which is plenty.
