It's possible as Epson has been working on a 4K display chip. I suspected they would be ready for an announcement at CEDIA 2014, but perhaps they will be ready to announce earlier at CES, especially if they expect to have projectors ready to ship before Sept. 2014 (i.e, date of next CEDIA Expo). As for Panasonic, they are the only company currently with HDMI 2.0 chips supporting the full 18 Gbps bandwidth, so if they really do have a new 4K projector being introduced at CES then I would expect it to support the higher refresh rates, higher fidelity chroma subsampling schemes and with greater bit depth enabled with a full bandwidth HDMI 2.0 implementation.
HOWEVER - Unless Epson is ready to announce their own 4K projector, which I doubt, then Panasonic will be using either LCoS or DLP technology. Given that production quantities of the consumer 4K DMDs (i.e., DLP) are not expected from TI until 2015, that leaves LCoS (or Sony SXRD) as the most likely tech in the Panasonic 4K projectors.
