Back before CES, Westinghouse was hyping up their new 2160p Quad HDTV that would be on display at the show. Well, we saw the TV first-hand, and yes it was impressive, but they weren’t really taking all that much pride in it. When we took a booth tour, they pointed at it, said that it is for professionals, and then they moved on. I mean, the TV is 2160p – double the 1080p that is typically referred to as “Full HD” – with that amount of lines, it’s nothing to sneeze at.
On to the news you’re waiting for. Cybertheater is reporting that the new 52-inch Quad HDTV will sell for around $50,000. The only problem is that there’s really no use for such an uber-high-def TV at this point in time. I mean, there’s not even content for it yet. I suppose Westinghouse is really just marketing to designers and other professionals rather than your everyday consumer (pretty obvious by the price tag). More on the Quad HDTV as it develops.
