​TV industry paves way for humongously high-res video

The HDMI Forum, a group of electronics companies that includes everyone from LG TV and Sony to Google and Netflix, has announced plans to release HDMI 2.1 by the end of June. On Wednesday at CES 2017, HDMI backers said it means that TVs and computer monitors will be able to display video at a remarkable 7,680×4,320 pixels. Dubbed 8K, such screens will offer four times the pixels found in 4K models — and 16 times the pixels in mainstream 2014-era TVs with HD. – Stephen Shankland, CNET http://ift.tt/2io5Ucm
