The new 4K display screens are becoming more popular. With more than 4,000 pixels of horizontal resolution, they offer clarity that wasn't available just a few years ago.
Earlier this year, the research firm NPD DIsplaySearch published its latest forecast. Even though desktop monitors are on the decline, the report predicts that two million 4K desktop monitors will ship in 2014. While this is a tiny fraction of the predicted 133 million monitors that will ship this year, the firm believes that 4K monitors will have an eight percent market share by 2017.
microISVs need to monitor these trends, and support the newer, higher-resolution monitors that are becoming more and more popular.
