Samsung Plans To Produce 4000x2000 Pixel LCD TV's
Could we be seeing LCD TV's boasting resolutions of up to 4000x2000 pixels in our living rooms in the near future? An article in the New York Times
quoted Samsung's American VP for LCD sales as saying that "LCD sets are getting bigger, and increasing in resolution and quality, leading to a market similar to computers" and "the next wave of resolution will be 8-times the resolution of HD". That could be a hint that Samsung plans to start mass producing 4000x2000 pixel displays in the near future. This would require an entirely new manufacturing plant and Samsung is apparently talking "about the idea with potential customers". Maybe "near future" is an overly optimistic prediction. Given it takes about 18 months to get a new plant up and running, we give it at least 3 years to happen.
