Sony embraces 4K at CES

Article Summary:

At Sony’s press conference at the CES show in Las Vegas, the company was all about delivering and creating 4K footage, Engadget reports. On display was a prototype 4K consumer camcorder which appeared to have a fairly standard prosumer form factor and features and displayed a Handycam logo. Also announced was the HXR-IFR5 Interface Unit, which upscales existing HD footage to 4K. The RAW video files produced by the unit are in 4096 x 2160 resolution. These new devices join Sony’s announcement earlier in the week that it will release two new affordable 4K TVs this summer.
