Sharp ICC 4K Technology, 1080p to 4K upscaling on 55″ Sharp 4K TV to be released soon

Posted by – January 15, 2012

Sharp is about to mass produce a 4K2K 55″ HDTV. Their secret sauce is the ICC technology (Integrated Cognitive Creation) which is an upscaling technology, somehow sharpening and adding details to 1080p sources to make them look more amazing on the 4K HDTV. With this, people might want to consider re-watching all their Blu-ray movies to re-experience the same 1080p source files in more amazing quality. That until each of the movies are also available in the native 4K2K resolution on Blu-ray, hard drives, streaming and other potential 4K media.

I’d like them to overlay affiliated one-click purchases and price comparisons of the products video-blogged. I believe web video is a huge deal, just as it’ll consume 90% of the web’s bandwidth, it will also generate upwards 90% of the web’s and Google’s revenue, profit, learning, information, attention and time spent.

In the following clip, Stan Lee, the creator of the CSI TV show franchise, talks about user generated content on YouTube.
