The price point for the same gear 10 years ago: $250,000. As for 4K TVs, LG’s Durgin said more and more Americans are embracing them. He cited projections calling for 1.5 million 4K TV sets in the U.S. in 2014, a total that is now forecast to reach 4 million or 5 million this year. “That could double in 2016 to 10 million,” he said, noting that research from Parks Associates pegs global 4K sets at 330 million by 2019.
