I expect 60" 4K set to debut around 4-5,000 by early 2013.
You missed this particular talk was about computer monitors. Size is then limited to ~35", Eizo monitor has 36".
I still maintain 4K TV makes no sense. It is just a gimmick to force poor consumers into inferiority complex of having "just" 2K and drive the replacement to 4K. Starts from Japan of course.
In turn the 4K computer monitors make big sense, they are kind of necessity in the era of high-res digital photography and screens packed with details. The Eizo 4K monitor is the first good step into 4K but its $30K price is only for those who may strike oil billions by looking at sharper pics or binladens searching agencies. I wonder how the $30K is possible at all. Looks like Eizo had to order several hundred pieces of custom build 4K panels. That however is still unexplicable in the light of 3K 10" tablet panels entering now production
Anyway, from here the only direction of prices is big south
