Bajarin: Apple’s New T-CON Technology Could Be Use In An Ultra HD TV Set

Apple unveiled their new 5K Retina iMac boasting a resolution of 5180×2880 pixels, making it the world’s highest resolution display. In a first impression report on the device, Darrell Etherington had this to say:

[su_quote] It’s even more apparent in my home desktop setup, where the new iMac is flanked by a 2011 27-inch iMac on the left, and a 27-inch Thunderbolt display on the right: The iMac with Retina 5K display is far and away the best visual experience ever produced, for any kind of computing device, and likely for any kind of A/V device, period. It’s easy to make a big screen look good when it’s designed to be seen from five or more feet back; this iMac is made for use with only a couple of feet at most between it and the viewer, and it looks absolutely stunning even when seen with a gap of just a few inches.[/su_quote]

Etherington was not the only one left impressed with Apple’s latest creation. Tim Bajarin of Tech.Opinion describes the new 5K iMac as a game changer and the new technology used to make this jaw-dropping display could will makes it’s way to an Ultra HD TV:


However, Apple did something very interesting with the design of the 5K Retina Mac. They created a special processor of their own known as the timing controller or T-CON designed just to manage and manipulate each pixel with levels of precision we have not seen so far in TV or PC displays. I have no clue if this could be put into a dedicates Apple TV but, at the technical level, this processor could give them a decided edge in TV designs should they want to go in that direction.

I see the iMac with 5K Retina Display as an important product for Apple and their professional audiences and perhaps a hit with upscale consumers who want a high res monitor that could be used for multiple purposes included watching 4K based streamed TV content. But I suspect the technology designed into this could be used in other products over time and this makes this new iMac a product to watch closely over time.[/su_quote]
