It looks like Google will be making quite the high resolution splash at CES 2014 next week, where it will have its YouTube team on-site to show off its new 4K streaming technology that uses the VP9 codec.

The search giant has 19 hardware partners that are supporting the mostly unused codec, including ARM, Broadcom, Intel and Marvel. At CES 2014, YouTube will be showing off its 4K streaming technology at the booths of LG, Panasonic and Sony. Google developed the royalty-free codec in-house, but hasn't ruled out that YouTube won't have support for H.265 sometime in the future.
