Will 4K HD change the way we watch television?

At Sony, you can buy a 55-inch 4K Ultra HD TV for $4,999.99 or an 84-inch model for $24,999.99. On the Morning Media Menu today, TVNewser editor Alex Weprin talked about the implication of this super high definition television. Check it out:

See more on TV than ever before with over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160) compared to about 2 million (1,920 x 1,080) on your current HDTV. Advanced picture processing also ensures that each of those pixels displays images with superb brightness and authentic detail. It’s the highest resolution picture Sony has ever produced on a TV … Suddenly, everything looks better. Sony’s unique 4K TVs upscale your favorite TV shows, DVDs and Blu-ray™movies – even YouTube® clips and smartphone videos – for higher quality, stunning results. The new 4K X-Reality™ PRO chip enhances HD (and lower resolution) images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural detail and astounding colour.
