Westinghouse shows off a 2160p HDTV
1080p is really what you should be looking for in a new high-definition HDTV, but the next generation is just around the corner: Westinghouse showcases a 2160p – commonly referred to as a Quad HDTV.
The manufacturers have committed to the technology; and now the prices are getting down to competitive levels. The question remains, how long do broadcasters, producers and publishers wait to roll out actual high definition shows and games?
Here’s a look at three 2006 big-screen HDTVs that have the highest-available native resolution, known in the industry as 1080p. These sets have their work cut out for them competing against the 2005 models, despite all sharing the ability to accept 1080p sources.

Now if we could just get some true high-def content! It’s too late to avoid the new alphabet soup of HD Disk drive formats.
