Sharp demos LCD monitor with 4096x2160 resolution
If you think new 30" 2560x1600 displays from Apple and Dell already have too many pixels for their own good, you might not have seen Sharp's new experimental 64" LCD monitor. The display, which is being shown at Japan's Ceatec trade show this week, has a resolution of 4096x2160 for a total pixel count of 8,847,360—more than four times as many as a 1080p HDTV. CNet says Sharp won't launch the display in the consumer market, though, and that it will instead be targeted at medical researchers and film or TV producers. However, CNet suggests that technology used by the display might eventually appear in retail products.
