Does anyone know if any retailers in central London are demo'ing the new 4K TV's? I know Richer Sounds has one in a store up north, surely someone in London has a demo model too?

Looks like Richer Sounds in Southampton are doing a demo.

But at 22499.95 it's a bit out of my price range.

Lol, don't think many people are buying it (myself included), just want to see a demo of it. Surely must be somewhere in London with one?

I don't know but For what it's worth, I upscaled an HD video to 4K the other day (4K x 2K) just "because it was there". Powerdirector 11 supports 4K so I had to try it.

Sadly I had to do it in software as my graphics card lacks 4K support so the conversion was slooow (5x real time). The resulting video plays fine in VLC player though, no dropped frames, though I had to play at half size.

Pity I don't have a 4K monitor or TV... so... http://www.pcworld.com/article/20173...out-5-500.html a snip at $5,500.

Thanks Chris, article appears to be from last March, but I think Harrods would be a good place to try. I'll pop along this weekend and see.
