Sony may not use the term “4K” 4,000 times during its CES press conference and keynote. But it will surely come close. The electronics giant is betting heavily on the next big-screen technology to help reestablish Sony’s name as the kind of brand that consumers aspire to buy. “We’re [going] after the premium consumer out there,” said Sony Electronics president Phil Molyneux. The term 4K refers to screens with a resolution of 3,896 by 2,640 pixels, a significant step over today’s high-definition displays, but one that will take time to be affordable and widespread.
