Westinghouse to trot out superhigh-resolution 56-inch LCD
First there was 1080p. Now there's something called "Quad Full" or 3840x2160 resolution, which Westinghouse will show off in a 56-inch LCD HD monitor at this year's Consumer Electronics Show. The company says that equates to a resolution greater than 8 megapixels and that the LCD offers "stunning, never-before-seen picture reproduction."
My first computer was a UNIVAC I, and there aren't many of us left.

yup, and what difference does it make when you cant get anything better than a 1080p source anyway?  By the time there is a source that takes advantage of the higher resolution, it will probably be in the affordable range.  That seems to be the way of things in the AV world.

As mentioned, what's the point when you can only get 1080p source material at this time.

Second of all, I question the usefulness.  I have a 56" 1080p set.  Most of the data I've found tells me I need to sit about 7 feet away for my eyes to fully resolve all the detail my set provides.  With the kind of resolution this new set it putting out, you'd have to sit even closer, or the added resolution would simply be wasted.  I don't currently feel 7 feet is too close for my TV, but I wouldn't want to get too much closer.

I wonder just how they plan on "showing it off".  Do they have some kind of special player?  Or possibly some kind of PC media that will run at that resolution?  Maybe it has a built in hard drive that runs a demo video?

Or possibly we are just supposed to take their word for it that its 3840x2160 and that its a marked improvement over what we have now

Whatever it is you can bet that Sony will have a competing, non-compatible format
