If you've been struggling to find appropriate ways to bore friends and family with your vacation pictures since you scrapped your slide projector 10 years ago, this year's Consumer Electronics Show has good news for you. Virtually every TV manufacturer is displaying at least one 4K (3840 × 2160) model. These screens offer four times the resolution of a Full HD (1920 x 1080) TV. Such high resolution content is still scarce, but even if you struggle to find streaming or broadcast content, 4K TVs are great for displaying high-resolution images from DSLRs or other digital cameras.

However, one manufacturer is taking things a step further. Sharp is showing a prototype of an 85-inch 8K LCD screen. At 7680 x 4320 pixels, the screen offers 16 times the resolution of a standard 1080 TV and would allow you to display a 33MP image without any downscaling or cropping. The image detail and vibrance of the screen is quite astonishing. You can only see individual pixels if you press your nose right onto the screen, a very immersive way of watching TV.

While 4K content is rare, 8K content is virtually nonexistent at this point. The clips Sharp showed on the prototype have been recorded by the Japanese Broadcasting Corporation NHK, which has been doing research into 8K technology since 1995. Nevertheless, if you want to display your DSLR or medium format digital images in the best possible way, this resolution giant might just be what you've been waiting for.
