Sony has announced that its new 16K display will be housed at the Shiseido Research Center. The display uses the firm's Crystal LED technology, and stands 17 feet tall and 63 feet wide.
As prices of 4K TVs and displays become more affordable, they are finding their way into more and more households, becoming the new norm. As we move into the next phase, 8K displays and TVs are being heavily touted at trade shows, and surprisingly, you can now even purchase an 8K TV if you have the funds to do so. So, you have to ask yourself, when is the resolution going to jump to 16K?
While it will most likely take quite some time for the technology to filter down to consumers, we have seen 16K displays being shown off in commercial and prototype settings over the past year. During the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) 2019 trade show, Sony took to the Las Vegas stage to announce its latest 16K resolution display, which is 17 feet tall and 63 feet wide. The display is currently being installed at the Shiseido Research Center in Yokohama, Japan.
