CES 2014

By Liam Paul

Every year, tens of thousands of consumer electronics enthusiasts descend on Las Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics show, or CES. Although many of the top software and hardware companies now have their own events to announce new products, CES still is a place where the next big thing is announced.

This year is projected to be the year that ultra HD, or 4K televisions and computer monitors become cheaper and more accessible to the average person.  4K is a term for any display that has over 4,000 pixels across, and 2,000 pixels down.  To put this into perspective, your average high definition TV or computer monitor has a pixel density of around 1920×1080.  This means that 4k displays have almost four times the pixels (hence the 4k), and that means the picture is a lot clearer.

Above is the official logo for the rather exciting event. Find it here!

There will also be 4K content this year, including the Super Bowl being broadcast to DirecTV users in Ultra HD.  TV manufacturers are also pushing for more UHD content.

The featured image is a tiny fraction of the CES experience. Imagine rooms and rooms full of every technology imaginable! The image, among others, can be found here.
