Without widespread studio support or wide availability of 1920p consumer displays, where is this supposed to lead?

And how big are those displays going to have to be to see a noticeable upgrade from 1080p?

Wow, I can't believe no one has caught on, that forum post is from 2008. The cable on amazon is a standard HDMI cable. There is no 1920 line format, its 1920x1080p. Whoever posted the description mistakingly listed the horizontal res instead of the vertical res.

2160p is the next logical step: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QFHD

Theres actually a few displays out there I believe, but they're mega expensive.

Well, it certainly begs the question (and yes, I know, I'm using that phrase completely incorrectly and my Critical Thinking professofr would be pissed if he saw that), how long before the next format?

Personally, I think it's going to be a very long time because unlike DVD's where you could keep your old display to enjoy the benefits of the DVD, The higher resolution formats require a higher resolution display and consumers are now just really at the point where they have their 1080p display and medium because the prices have really started to go down. The universal adoption of BD and 1080p (and I refer to them together because you can't have one without the other) is in its infancy right now and although BD has made temendous, exponential strides, it hasn't replaced the old format just yet.

So really, any discussions about next-gen HD formats in displays or media is really, really pre-mature... by at least a decade.

2160p is not really an advantage since 1080p has enough resolution to keep <100" screen displays sharp enough as it is. 2160p will help with larger screens but that just about eliminates everyone bar a few rich people on here.

The source material is the weakest link in most cases and that will not be helped much if at all with a 2160p native display.

It would be a better service if film transfers would be cleaned up better in 1080p, 3D advances took place and if TV's had other features bolted on to the existing panels rather than adding 2160p.

If you look at 1920x1200 pictures on your PC or PS3 that are higher than the resolution than your screen, you notice you have to zoom quite a bit before it degrades in quality. Now imagine how much bigger than your screen the picture is when 1/10th of the image is visible. Put that picture on a 60" HDTV and its bigger than the wall itself. Personally I think thats overkill. It serves no purpose to have such high resolutions in the living room unless you zoom for intricate details, which in movies is not really necessary.
