I feel like this is last chance saloon. As many already know on this forum, I have major concerns that within a decade smartphones will have virtually taken over as our method of consuming movies and tv. It seems to be a upward trend and the tide needs to be turned ASAP. Smart tv, IMO, has failed. Same goes for 3D. The industry, IMO, needs a boost and a way to get all those smartphone eyeballs back to watching on a large screen. I don't want the living room experience to disappear (one of the reasons I see streaming as such a threat) and I feel once bluray dies ( not for many years) that will be the downward spiral from which there will be no recovery. 4k needs to work and we need adoption over the coming years. I also feel we need something groundbreaking to convince the younger generation how great the big screen can be. The tv in the living room is in no danger short term, long term I am one worried customer. Movies die when the big screen dies for me. As home theatre fans, in my opinion, we need to stop embracing streaming tech that will eventually lead to mobile viewing on phones and smartwatches. I just don't see the positives that many see. Some don't see the danger, I certainly do. It won't be a future of choice if one desires large screen entertainment It will be a forced tiny screen experience that is useless to me.

I agree with you in that one should never underestimate the power of convenience when it comes to taking over the consumer market. The ubiquitousness of video content has created a generation of people who don't put any particular value on it, and the most important thing is that you can carry it with you, even if you're watching it on a postage stamp.

That said, I think that technology can save the big screen experience in at least 3 ways. One way is VR glasses, which will enable you to have a large screen experience anywhere (this is inevitable and soon), another will be the flexible lcd/led screens that could allow for a very transportable large screen, and on the pie in the sky side of things, we'll eventually create holographic screens a la Iron Man that could project a floating flat viewing surface of any size.

I am very much ready to jump in soon. However, there is a niggling problem in the distance. Read the link and please give your opinion. I am simply worried for the future of our big screen tv. Why is it that as we stand at the point in time when 4k will give us unrivalled quality more and more sheep, drones or the masses are turning to smartphones to get their entertainment fix? Will 4k be the last format we watch in our living rooms on the big screen? Will everything from then on be all about tablets, smartphones and soon tiny smartwatch screens?

Joe Kane was on Home Theatre Geeks today and was saying to get the best out of UHD things will have to be shot in resolutions higher than 2160p or 4K. He reminded viewers that when we saw the best out of DVD a lot of the scans were being done in 1080i or 1080p, but now a lot of the best Blu ray's (hopefully the forth coming Goodfellas) are being done in 4K even though they are only being shown in 1080p.

This is that Home Theatre Geeks episode

Fortunately for me I never got caught up with the 3D experience either in the cinema or through the Blu-Ray 3D experience. I was indifferent to it. I was surprised though to hear that 3D in the home entertainment market was considered such a flop. I am though very keen and interested in the upcoming upscale of 4K application both in the cinema experience and now at home. The new curved screen 4K UHD displays will likely replicate as close as possible the old 70mm 6-Track Todd-AO and Super Panavision cinema experiences of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s now viewed as IMAX. If that is the case I'll be quite happy to add 4K Blu-Rays both classic and new feature films to my collection. If it's a great memorable movie state-of-the-art quality exhibition at home will always beat streaming anytime.
