Originally, it was believed that UHDTV would begin to appear in the market in 2016 via some selected programming.

Ubiquity, including the ability to do live programming and transport signals to a wide audience, would arrive a couple years later.

Consumer electronics manufacturers, many with the backing of the Japanese government, have advanced that schedule and now are hoping to present UHDTV to the consuming public as early as 2014.

The reasoning is simple: better resolution will encourage consumers to buy bigger screens and, even if they don’t pay substantially more, buy new televisions.

CE manufacturers believe that the immersive experience engendered by UHDTV is enough to sell it to an audience that wants to put a bigger screen in a smaller space.

This broadcast white paper by Grass Valley discusses the reasoning behind how better resolution will increase consumer sales of TV's and other electronic devices.
