The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the world’s largest — and most sprawling — trade shows. With over 2 million square feet of official exhibits in over a dozen venues, plus hundreds of unofficial vendor suites and hotel rooms, CES spans most of Las Vegas. A cab ride from one end to the other is $ 25 and during peak traffic can take an hour, so it is important to plan your days carefully. The reward for perseverance is the opportunity to see just about everything new, interesting, or even zany in consumer electronics and photography.
Over the course of last week we brought you stories about some of the most important announcements, so in this slideshow we’ll fill in a few of the gaps with visual highlights from the show.
Let’s start with, of course, the biggest winner at this year’s CES: wide-screen Ultra HD TVs!
With 4K UHD TVs the most visible stars of CES, including Sony’s new X-tended dynamic range models, of course someone had to up the ante with a 5K set. Toshiba was showing off this model that doesn’t have any more vertical resolution than a 4K set, but is wider, allowing full-screen display of cinematic content (which generally has a wider aspect ratio than normal wide-screen displays).
For the difference between the often interchanged terms 4K and UHD, check out Sebastian’s explainer.
