CEA Announced Ultra High-Definition As The New Name For 4K Display Unit

The full HD standard has been official upgraded to Ultra HD or 4K by CEA (Consumer Electronic Industry). You know, the days where you’ll brag about your new “Full HD” HDTV to your friend has official ended, and you’ll look like a fool trying to brag it once more. Full HD 1920 x 1080p standard is not the top of the line anymore, and it’s been substituted by Ultra HD resolution, which is about 4 times the size. You can also call it Quad full HD as it’s measuring at 4096 × 2160p.


The purpose of this announcement by CEA is to help consumer understand the new jargon “4K” easier. In the future, people will recognize 4K monitor or display as an “Ultra HD”. However, the Ultra HD is not limited to the 4K standard alone. If I’m not mistaken, 8K, which is the double of 4K at 7680 × 4320p, is also the Ultra HD standard that would be released in the near future. The point is, Ultra HD will be the leading jargon for all next gen display.

“Ultra HD is the next natural step forward in display technologies, offering consumers an incredibly immersive viewing experience with outstanding new levels of picture quality,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA. “This new terminology and the recommended attributes will help consumers navigate the marketplace to find the TV that best meets their needs.”

More details about this new jargon could be found on the official CEA press release.

If you decided to take your kids, nephews, or neighbors’ kids to play minus the dangerous stuff, plus some crazy fun stuff, you will want to check out this weird but fun MASSIVE BEACH BALL.


I should’ve called it a GIANT BALL instead.

Despite of its look, this 10′ ball is pretty light. Kids can play with it with no problem at all. It’s just that they can’t throw it far away anymore without getting buried.

LOL. Yeah, you can’t kick this ball at all because it’s too big. It could be pretty heavy for toddlers/underages, so don’t bring them if you don’t what to hurt them.

One thing that is quite important is that you’ll need a pump to inflate this shit. Try it by blowing, and you are going to feel like filling the abyss! :)

Anyway, if you like this GIANT Beach ball for your summer fun, you can check it out at ThinkGeek.
