Kind of confirms what I've concluded the past several years about CES TV announcements & prototypes.
When the true successor to plasma performance-wise should be OLED, all these companies keep sinking money in an inferior display technology.
I've been tuning the marketing machine off until they come up with something > 65" that can truly out-perform & replace my last gen Kuro.
The buzz words for the technology (quantum dots?
) without technical explanations of how it works aren't helping.
And still, another yr goes by without all the pieces to the UHD puzzle in place by the companies promoting the technology. They're making progress but not there yet (at least for me to plunk down my money on a new display).
Now, if all the display companies could all agree to a standard for HDR, color gamut & bits, the consumer wouldn't have to play guessing games what the BS marketing will really bring to the table in his
home. The TV mfgs are still all over the place on implementation.
At least CEDIA announcements brought Atmos with standards, real hardware, real demos and hard explanations on implementation and functionality.
Can the TV mfgs take some lessons?
