The Inq heard experimental 4096 x 2160 resolution TVs at the CEATEC show wiped the 1080i competitors off the showroom floor.
One of the new screens, being made by Sharp was a 64-inch LCD monitor, sporting which could manage 8.84 million pixels.

At the moment these screens are being promoted to film and television producers as well as medical researchers, but it is only a matter of time before they appear in a shop near you.

Apparently, the demo got a lot of attention at the show with several TV personalities, whose names will be meaningless outside Japan, claiming that the 1080i format makes them 'look bad' whereas the new resolution is much better.
