Polaroid brand TV will be built by Empire electronics
Typically, when we see a new 4K resolution TV, we are looking at a set costing several thousand dollars or more. Polaroid has a branded 4k TV that will make its debut at CES 2014 in Las Vegas next week that is a fraction of the cost you might expect. The 4K TV has a 50-inch screen size.
The price for the 50-inch 4K TV will be $999.99. The TV will have three HDMI inputs and is built under license by Empire Electronics. The company will also be showing off a 50-inch Roku ready smart TV. That set will cost $599.99.
The 4K TV promises fluid and smooth video with high quality color and image reproduction. If the TV turns out to be decent, this may be the first affordable 4K set on the market.
“Not many people realize that Edwin Land was a pioneer in developing the polarizing technology used in modern televisions,” said Scott W. Hardy, President and CEO of Polaroid. “We are excited to bring consumers a state-of-the-art product at an affordable price point. Families can share more movie nights together with our new home entertainment options.”
