Sharp 85-inch TV Supports 8K Resolution and 3D Content

I can distinctly remember CES several years ago when the first few 4K resolution TVs were showing up in the corner of booths at the show. At the time, the adoption of 1080p content was so slim that it seemed ridiculous to even be thinking beyond 1080p. The images that were showing on those old 4k TVs looked good though.

Fast forward to CES 2014 and 4K TVs are everywhere at the show and a lot of content partnerships have been announced that will result in 4K content being available for the TVs. With 4k starting to go mainstream, it’s about time that manufacturers started looking to the next big thing in TVs.

Sharp unveiled what it claims to be the world's first 85-inch 8K resolution TV at CES 2014. That would give the 85-inch behemoth twice the resolution of those 4K sets that are just now starting to get to the price where normal folks can buy them.

Sharp created the 8k TV in cooperating with Philips and Dolby reports BGR. The set will support 3D content and will be able to support 4k resolution as well. The native resolution of the set is 7680 x 4320 giving it a whopping sixteen times resolution advantage over full HD TVs of today.

Sharp isn’t spilling all the details on the set. For instance, we don’t know when or if it will come to market. We also don’t know how much it will cost. Consider that it's not uncommon for a 85-inch or larger 4K TV to run well over $10,000 and you can imagine this 8K set would be insanely if it were available now.

Another cool feature of the 85-inch Sharp TV is that it needs no glasses to view 3D content. The 3D tech used makes it possible to get a stereoscopic 3D image in 4k resolution. Getting 3D 4k resolution content is probably the best use for an 8k TV.
