It's time for a rundown of all the best in HD news from CES this week and it's a heckuva long list. Ben Drawbaugh joins Richard Lawler to hash it out and discuss whether 4K has matured enough to settle in for the long haul.

Head on down to the streaming links below for all the info in this week's second installment of the HD Podcast, CES edition.
