More pixels than you can shake a stick at

Security for virtualized datacentres

HD TV isn’t good enough any more, it seems. Samsung has paraded an 82in LCD TV that boasts a resolution several times higher than rubbish old hi-def.

Samsung's ultra-definition TV: 3840 x 2160 pixels

The technology’s been dubbed "ultra-definition", and while HD resolution tops out at 1920 x 1080, Samsung’s super-sized screen has a resolution of - wait for it - 3840 x 2160 pixels.

The screen’s UD resolution has also been souped up with 120Hz picture frame-rate processing and separate red, green and blue backlights are built in behind the panel to increase colour saturation.

The Samsung set isn’t the first ever UD screen, because some are already used in oil and gas industries. Nonetheless, Sang Soo Kim, executive VP of Samsung's LCD technology centre, claimed the 82in whopper allows “viewers to watch motion pictures as if they are really in them”, and that UD is the “optimal display for future TVs”.

Well, at least until Mega Ultra Definition (MUD) comes along...

Samsung hasn’t confirmed if it has any plans to release the UD TV commercially.
