Samsung demos 2160p HDTV at SID 2008
Samsung is demonstrating an 82″ Quad HDTV with 2160p resolution at the SID 2008 (Society for Information Display) symposium in Los Angeles, which runs from May 18 to 23.

Compared with current top of the range LCD TVs, which have a maximum 1080p (1920×1080) HD resolution, Samsung’s Quad HDTV offers “ultra definition” technology giving a resolution of 3840×2160, or 2160p.

The set, which is a prototype, features a red/green/blue LED backlight, which raises the color saturation to 150% and also helps to save energy. It has an image refresh rate if 120 Hz.

Quad HDTVs are already available, but their high price restricts their use to markets requiring high resolution displays, such as the oil and gas industry.

However, at SID 2008, Samsung called the screen the optimal display for HDTVs of the future, which could mean that the technology could be poised to become more accessible.
