Face it, 1080p just isn't bleeding edge anymore. By the end of the year we're sure to have a $50, 1080p iPod from Apple, and then what are we going to do? Friends, we must move onto greater resolutions now before we miss the proverbial boat, and leading the way is Sharp with their new 65-inch prototype LCD which sports a 4096 x 2160 resolution. They're not the only one playing the ultra HD game, Westinghouse was showing off a 56-inch 3840 x 2160 display at CES in January, and Japan's NHK has been prepping a 7680 x 4320 "Super Hi-Vision" TV standard for a while, but Sharp looks to be doing a pretty good job of things all the same. The display, which is still in development, will be initially targeted at film and television producers, along with medical imaging purposes, but we're sure we'll find a good enough excuse -- and the nefarious means -- to squeeze one of these into the Engadget HQ within a year or so. Along with the 64-incher, Sharp was showing off their new manufacturing methods that allow them to get six 52-inch LCDs out of a single glass sheet, along with a "Mega Contrast" display that boasts of a spanking 1 million-to-1 contrast ratio.
