We talked sometime ago about the fight in the early 70’s with the VCR using either VHS or BETA tapes. We all know that VHS won the war and became the standard. Then the fight for the Internet with web browsers. We had the fight between Microsoft IE and Netscape, with Microsoft winning out by using a shady tactic of FREELY giving away their IE browser.
Now this brings us to the war for your dollars. And this war is coming to your living room. 3D TV’s were first really seen two years ago at CES and really just didn’t grip the consumer. I really think as do a lot of others, people don’t want to wear glasses on their face when they are watching TV. The idea is great, I would love to see a football game in 3D and have the players and the football coming right into your viewing room.
It looks like there is another shift coming out a last years CES 4K TV’s. If you don’t know what this is then you are most likely not alone. We still see people buying their first LCD TV. 4K is a higher brighter resolution. This means that you will see detail that you have never seen before. I thought that Blue Ray already took care of this? The only issue is that there is not much if any content or video being created for this new 4K technology.
So what does all of this stuff take place? Easy. The TV makers and creators of video know that we need more and think we are never happy. There is a little proof for that. We were watching a movie the other night in Standard Def. and I my daughter didn’t want to watch it. She said it looked blurry. Be really once you have your TV, you are most likely not changing it until it dies. I know that is the rule we live by.
What will you buy or are you waiting for the future item that we have not seen yet? Post the answer in the comments.
