Agreed. 1080p Blu Ray is my "good enough" threshold. I have no desire to upgrade yet AGAIN.

Sitting 4 feet away from a 65 inch tv does not allow you to see the entire image clearly, your vision cannot have all of the screen in focus.

??? I think you are misunderstanding my post. Ultra screen will surely exist at large sizes for theatres of course. Home maybe 10 12 ft screens at most. I can see 8k coming from screens that big. Other benifits are surely coming as well. Wait till Native 3d Holography. You'll see 33+k on something in 30 years.
Gamers, Astronomers, photographers, Hell even video editors have a need for much higher resolution. I think we'll reach a part of time where in 10-12 years flat screens will be obsolete.

As for now I am more then pleased with whats out there, but I have an idea of whats coming or will be coming. So naturally I will upgrade overtime.

Loving how people flip flop opinions instead of been honest on this site,, some of you should re-read previous threads. Doesn't espouse great confidence either in you're memory or longitudinal thinking guys.

There will always be more, because TV manufacturers will always want to sell more TVs. 8K might not interest average viewers, but they'll package it with "Super High Dynamic Range" or "Burn-Your-Eyes-Out-Of-Your-Sockets Dynamic Range", etc. so that those same people think "Oh my god! I have to have that!"

Of course there will be more. I mean you think a thousand years in the future this will be it? Lol

Eventually TV's will be as big as the wall in your living room and not that far in the future I don't think so 8k will have practical value

I know people take life for granted, but this takes the cake! Tomorrow is not promised to any of us, lest predicting what's going to happen in the next thousand years.

I'm more interested in framerate upgrades than resolution.

I'd also like to see 3D get to a more mature level where its not a gimmick, but a technology where your looking into a box of holograms that is at 4k resolution. Thats where cinema should be taking us, where the actual projection has depth, rather than a flat screen.

2K or HD is acceptable for me in a sense that if a film never ends up receiving an UHD release, I am fine with it... GRANTED that the available HD transfer is of 'reference quality'. 2K/HD looks fine in theaters, and looks fine even projected on 100"+ screens at proper viewing distances. But bad looking HD is not worthwhile at this point. Nor is ANYTHING SD (color NTSC is sixty-four year old tech). So quality HD is the minimum requirement for acceptable viewing of a film at larger screen sizes, IMO.


UHD is obviously preferable at this point, because it allows for video quality that is closer to the source. It also has the added benefit of new scans that replace old ones.
Wanted:
Criterion: 'The Third Man' Digipak (do NOT need discs or booklets)
Studio Canal Collection Nordic Edition slipcovers for digibook releases

Good one. The way man keeps raping the planet (I'm looking at you China), I doubt we'll be here for a tenth of that time.
