Just bought a new High Definition TV? Sorry, Ultra High Definition is here.

The Consumer Electronics Association (CES) has announced a name change for 4K TV’s.  What, never heard of 4K TV’s?  Not surprising, The term 4K TV was a bit techie and really wasn’t catching on hence the reason CEA changed the name to Ultra High Definition or Ultra HD.  They will be on display at next years CES show in Las Vegas.  To be a Ultra HD display the device needs to have a resolution of at least 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.  Aspect ratio (ratio of height to width) remains 16:9.  Ty Pendlebury over at C|Net did a great job explaining Ultra High Definition (aka 4K), check it out.
