UHD, but no UHD

, May 12, 2014

Joe Stinziano, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics of America, introduces a 105-inch, curved ultra-high definition (UHD) television during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), in Las Vegas, Nevada, in January 6 in this file photo. Soccer fans who have splashed out on top-of-the-range UHD TVs in time for the Fifa World Cup next month may not get to watch any matches in the new format. Only three matches will be filmed in UHD, which boasts resolution four times higher than the full HD standard. That is because even in Japan, where the format was invented, few broadcasters have the ability to transmit the large amount of data required for UHD over conventional broadcast satellites.
