Giant Televisions Dominate Early Reveals At CES 2015
Next-generation televisions are front and center at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, but are consumers ready to invest in the technology yet?By A.J. Feather | January 6, 2015
The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas doesn't technically kick off until Tuesday, but the products started lining up and presentations were already in full swing a day early. And it seems the theme so far this year is clear — giant TVs.
These features go hand-in-hand. LED screens made TVs much thinner and easy to produce but their backlighting was bad for color accuracy. As The Verge reports, "Many TV makers initially turned to OLED displays as a way to improve the way TVs looked, but ran into issues mass producing them, a problem that was compounded in the shift from 1080p to 2K, 4K, and beyond."
