In one of the first CES 2013 announcements to feature a triple-digit screen size, Westinghouse says it will show a 110-inch TV with 4K resolution in Vegas.
Even if you believe that 4K TVs are stupid, like we do, that won’t stop manufacturers from churning out numerous examples of the shiny new, higher-resolution TVs at the Consumer Electronics Show next month.
Tied for the biggest we’ve heard of so far is the 110-inch 4K LED TV announced by Westinghouse yesterday.
That size will join 50-, 55-, and 65-inch 4K models in the company’s booth. Few other details, aside from a 120Hz refresh rate and shipping information, were revealed. The 110-incher will be available as a custom order in the first quarter, says the company, while the smaller sizes will hit retail shelves around the same time.
I was told separately (and as yet unofficially) by Chinese maker TCL that it would also debut a 110-inch 4K TV at the show, and at the time it billed the size as the “world’s largest” 4K TV. Since the official Westinghouse press release does not use that language, perhaps we’ll see an even larger 4K set at CES. For what it’s worth, TCL also said its TV would be 3D, and I assume the Westinghouse will, too.
