CMO: 1080p is For Punks, We Got Quad HD


We’re barely seeing 1080p content and yet the guys over at Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO) have already made plans for a 47-inch Quad high-definition display. Quad HD would dwarf today’s 1080p (1,920×1,080) sets with a 3,840×2,160 resolution (1440p). CMO’s 47-inch LCD panel, which is said to be slated for the second quarter of 2007, would carry a 1,500:1 contrast ratio, dual-link DVI, and HDMI 1.3. And of course the all too sexy 1440p resolution. As for us, we’ll stick with our 1080p set for now, thanks. (Even if it’s still at the store and not in our living room).
