Canon has announced that from April 16-19 they will be at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show that is taking place next week in Las Vegas. One of the big new items they are bringing with them is a 30 inch industrial video display that handles the next-generation 4K video standard.
“Canon is currently developing a 30-inch 4K resolution industrial display as a 4K video output device realizing faithful color reproduction and high-resolution, high-contrast performance. Canon will exhibit a prototype of the video display from April 16 to 19 at NAB Show 2012, the world’s largest international digital event for audio, video, film, broadcast and communications, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.”
This is strictly a prototype of a monitor that is still under development, so don’t expect to see it on the market any time soon. However, there has been talk of the movie industry moving to 4K in the future and Canon plans to be prepared for that possible inevitability. Canon does specify that, while they don’t have pricing or specifications available at this time, they have every intention of having this new display on the market before the end of 2012.
