Ultra HD TVs with 4K resolution were the talk of the Consumer Electronics Show this year, but not even the director of industry analysis at the group that organizes CES each year was convinced Ultra HD TV would see meaningful adoption in 2013. According to a recent report, however, HDTVs with Ultra HD resolution might get off to a stronger than expected start. Digitimes claims its unnamed market observer sources expect display panels destined for Ultra HD TVs to account for as much as 20% of HDTV panel shipments in 2013. China-based TV vendors are expected to account for much of the early demand, and Innolux and AUO are named as the main suppliers of 4K display panels. Digitimes notes that pricing is still a barrier for widespread adoption, as Ultra HD panels cost about twice as much as comparable 1080p displays.
