For the time being, consumers have gotten a look at WiGig technology through select vendors, with the technology having begun to pick up speed in recent times as more devices are offered with it. That speed increase will be coming in a different way in the near future, however, with DisplayLink and Wilocity announcing that it will demonstrate 4K video delivery with the technology at the Intel Developer Forum.
Epitomizing the cliche "small but terrible", Gigabyte's upgraded BRIC ultra compact PC offers quite a lot in terms of raw power while remaining locked up in a chassis no bigger than your hand. Gigabyte's BRIX line represents a growing trend of packing mid- to high-end components in ever decreasing device sizes.
At IFA 2013 this week, we got our hands on the Acer Liquid S2, a powerhouse of a smartphone that brings 4K video recording to your mobile. With the Liquid S2, Acer has built upon the foundation it laid with the Liquid S1 handset from earlier this summer, bringing with it a variety of spec increases both inside and out.
Sony has officially unveiled a new projectors today called the VPL-VW500ES. That projector boasts native 4K resolution and slips into Sony's lineup next to the VW1000ES, which was the world's first native 4K resolution projector. The VW500ES uses a DCI based 4096 x 2160 resolution promising the highest quality 4K content possible.
Clearly, the big thing at IFA 2013 for TV manufacturers this year is curved televisions. So far, we've seen curved OLED sets and curved LED TVs at the show. LG has rolled out what it claims to be the world's largest curved screen OLED TV called simply enough the 77-inch Ultra HD Curved OLED TV.
Second-tier TV manufacturer Hisense is on hand at IFA 2013 and it's showing off its massive 110-inch 4K LED backlit TV. This appears to be the same TV that was shown off at CES 2013 earlier this year. Hisense isn't making that big a deal out of the TV and possibly more interesting than the 110-inch version is that 65-inch and 84-inch versions were tipped during CES.
Twelve months ago Panasonic showed us a 4k display slotted into an oversized tablet and threatened to release it on the world; now, the Panasonic Toughpad 4K UT-MB4 has been born. 20-inches and 3840 x 2560 resolution, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB4 isn't being targeted at your average iPad owner - not least because it's ten times the price - but instead at architects, artists, and design studios, though we must confess feeling some lust ourselves. Read on for our first-impressions.
Panasonic has unveiled a new television called the Smart Viera WT600. The TV is billed as the world's first ultra HDTV with a 4K 60p input design that is based on HDMI 2.0 and the DisplayPort 1.2a specifications. The TV supports ultra HD resolution content at up to 60 frames per second and promises impressive image quality.
Sony is showing off a new prototype 4k Ultra HD OLED TV at IFA 2013, and the company isn't short on hyperbole about the new set. The 56-inch panel is both brighter and more colorful than either of the OLED TVs on sale from Samsung and LG, Sony told us, as well as being bigger, at least by an inch. However, there's a hitch: right now, Sony isn't producing it, and it isn't quite sure whether it could.
