Enjoy Big-Screen 4K TV With A Posh Low-Profile Projector

To fully relish television’s ultra-high-definition tomorrow in an office or living room today, you can beam wall-filling movie-theater quality images from a discreetly housed video laser array—at a price. Sony’s 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector offers four times the definition of current full-HD video in a sleek, speaker-concealing enclosure that costs a cool $50K. It sveltely squats inches away from any vertical surface, blazing a 147-inch diagonal expanse with vivid, undistorted viewing pleasure. 

Available at InnerSpace Electronics, Port Chester, $50,000

Tap A Bargain App Now To Grab 4K iPhone Videos 

The previous version of Vizzywig 8xHD was one of the most expensive apps ever available from Apple’s iTunes store, with a jaw-dropping $999.99 asking price. Its developer wanted potential users to realize this is not just your everyday photo app. It is practically magic, stringing together burst-shot iOS photos into eye-popping 24 frame-per-second 4K-quality videos. Having made his point, app creator Michael Zaletel has decided to bring his price down to under $50.

Available from iTunes, $49.99

Shoot Your Own Ultra-HD Videos With This Compact Cam 

Early adopters of 4K TV screens and projectors still have to wait for an ample supply of content to enrich their viewing. Netflix and Amazon have been rolling out limited 4K streaming Internet services; 4K Blu-ray discs and players are not expected until late 2015. In the meantime, you can capture your best moments in 4K clarity on the HERO4 Black, the sharpest incarnation yet of GoPro’s classic matchbox-sized waterproof pro/am action cam. 

Available at Best Buy, $499.99

Savor An Even Sharper Screen On Apple’s 5K iMac

As if Ultra HD weren’t enough of an advance for home and office, Apple’s latest all-in-one desktop model boasts incrementally crisper imaging. The 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display digitally paints two-thirds more picture elements than 4K video (and four times more than the iMac unit it replaces). Ideal for photo and video pros, it also beckons to sprawling spreadsheet creators and multi-page document slingers, who won’t have to squint anymore. 

Available at Apple Stores, Westchester’s Ridge Hill, and The Westchester, from $2,499
