    When you put out a display before a technology has matured, you are necessarily going to be behind the curve. Seiki's $1500, 55" 4K display impressed everyone with its price but the built-in scaling and upconversion was pretty disappointing. Rather than release a new display this year with better scaling and leaving all those customers with substandard sets, Seiki's U-VISION 4k upconverting HDMI cable fixes the problem and is being provided for free to owners. Non-owners that want to try it out can buy one for the bargain price of $40. At that price, we're betting there are a number of 4k early adopters that are already pre-ordering theirs.

    Built in?

    Won't most 4K tvs (the ones made by reputable manufacturers) already scale incoming content to 4K? For years, we've all had 1080p tvs that scale the majority of content up. Most cable boxes, previous-gen game consoles, etc., don't even output 1080p. So this cable is just for Seiki owners, not every 4K early adopter.
