The big name manufacturers aren't the only ones announcing their line-up of UHD Displays this year at CES. Skyworth, a chinese manufacturer is showing an 84inch 4K Display.

On their website, Skyworth announced last August they would begin production of the 4K Sets, including 50inch and 65inch models.

Does this mean maybe we’ll see sub-$10,000 84-inch Ultra HDs in the near future? Vizio anyone?

I'm still looking into how much this display costs, but it needs to beat the Sony 84inch ($21,000) or else as a generic, it won't make it very long in the big leagues.

Sony is also offering a media server with free UHD movies (from Sony Pictures). I'm not saying it justifies the 21K price, but Skyworth needs to be under that price point.

$2,000 for a 84" 4K? Typo maybe?

Seiki is selling an 85-inch unit for $8000, for what it's worth.

When looking at the skyworth website itself (the current product line), it looks like the current displays that they can sell to the US are extremely limited and simply not general purpose home viewing TVs.

 

I have to wonder how big a player they will actually be in 2014 in the states.  One of the things I really like is that they seem to be offering passive-3D in other countries at least.

Here.  As far as their impact in the world, I haven't a clue.  Looks like they have some respectable displays for sale in the rest of the world, just not yet the US.  I look forward to some of the industry guys chiming in on their relative importance.

If you doubled the size of the 84 inch you'd have a 168 inch which would fit through the door.

Sit 3 feet away and the resolution would blow your brains out!

Interesting that you refer to Skyworth as a "Generic" brand.  They're maybe not a house hold name in North America but far from being generic.  Skyworth would be one of the top 10 TV manufactures in the world market.

 

EDIT: I see now that you were not the source of the "Generic" comment. :)

They're a large Chinese consumer electronics manufacture valued at 5.7 billion USD in 2012.

 

Skyworth's products include consumer electronics, display devices, digital set top boxes, security monitors, network communication, semi-conductors, refrigerators, washing machines, cell phones and LED lighting.

 

They started out as an OEM not unlike Oppo.

It's companies like Skyworth and TCL that are causing Sony and Panasonic a loss of market share.

 

TCL is the sixth largest TV manufacture world wide and OEM's as well.  TCL bought the naming rights for Grauman's Chinese Theatre for $5 million in January 2013 and the theater was renamed TCL Chinese Theatre.

 

Here's a link for TCL if you're interested: http://www.tcl.com/en.php
