DigiTimes reports a series of new 32" monitors with 4Kx2K (4096 x 2160 pixels) resolution are expected to hit the market by the end of the year. These screens will remain extremely expensive though, they're aimed at medical and government applications and will carry a price tag of around $25,000.
Sources have yet to specify the company that will be releasing the monitors but claim that it is an US-based company. The sources revealed there will be a 32-inch monitor that uses IGZO panel technology and has 140ppi. The device will reportedly be released in the fourth quarter with a price tag of US$25,000 and will be targeted for use in primarily the medical and government sectors.
Sources also said IGZO technology is increasingly gaining attention from panel makers and consumer electronics makers. It is predicted the technology will be the new standard for panels used in handsets, tablets and notebooks and will most likely start appearing in those devices throughout the next year in order to compete with AMOLED technology.
