Ultra HD televisions were a popular item at CES 2013, and Chinese manufacturer TCL was not about to be left out of the party. It showed off a massive 110” China Star 3D 4K LCD television that will be featured in Marvel’s upcoming Iron Man 3 film. The 110” Ultra HD TV features a 4K resolution LED backlit-LCD display, active 3D technology, dynamic backlighting, and an 800 nits brightness rating. Reportedly, the TV also has mutli-touch input which likely means that it has support for applications.

At 110” the China Star TV would be impressive for a 1080p panel, but with its 4K resolution it is sure to make explosions and car chases look amazing! Unfortunately, there is no word on pricing, or if it will ever come to the United States. This seems to be more of a proof-of-concept TV where the experience and technologies used to develop it will be rolled out into future generations of TVs that will actually be available to consumers. It is one stepping stone on the way to affordable 4K (eventually), and that's a good thing. You can find TCL's full press release here.
