Default Japan to Promote Ultra High-Def 8K TV

QUOTES

" The format offers 8K resolution; 7,680 horizontal pixels x 4,320 vertical pixels, says the publication. Today's HDTVs deliver about 2,000 horizontal pixels."

"One obstacle in UHDTV's way: To display the ultra-clear image, sets should be in the 80-90 inch range."

Interesting. It makes you wonder how much definition would be enough for domestic displays.

If 8k would need "80-90 inch range" TV sets, I suppose 4 k would be more than enough for 40-60 inch to really enjoy it benefits. The picture should look marvelous (almost "three-dimensional") with just that.

And yes, let's hope that it takes some time. We better dont' have technologies changing every 5 years.

Wouldn't it be better to make 8k video chips for projectors for front projection instead? Most of us can't even afford a TV just for that size.

8K is sick. I can't even imagine how awesome it would look, but I agree with chat..it will be quite some time before we get that in our homes.

+1 There would be no point in buying if that were to happen. If blu-ray ended today, I would stop buying and keep what I have. Also, I wouldn't invest in future technologies. What would be the point?

I hear ya. 8K is sicker than what blu-ray shows. It may be available in 2020 but most people won't buy it until the price dramatically decreases or it might be just a fad. I think blu-ray will stick around for the next 10-15 years.

Not sure if BluRay will last 10 to 15 years. And perhaps something superior to 8K might come that would need less inches.

totally OTT imo.

hardly any movies are scanned at 8k. Might be worth it for digital presentations. My argument has always been about the size. You can keep upping the resolution but ideally you need a bigger screen to recognize the advantages. If the 80-90 inch thing is true then a 4k seems to balance things out nicely. Also, this is a geek thing now. your not going to enjoy movies anymore with this new tech.

You have a nice collection of horror icons and posters. So, who has more collectibles, you or the 40-Year-Old-Virgin?

I wouldn't mind a 80-90' TV. Would be cool in 15+ years.

You're not going to see it at home. You're probably not even going to see 4K in any appreciable manner. The space people are willing to devote to their TVs is simply not big enough for any realistic benefit

This is not something that is being realisticly looked at for actual home use by anyone.

I really don't think this is necessary. I've seen tests done where under 42" people can't see the difference between 1080p and 720p due to the size of the screen versus the distance you normally sit from it. Take a 1080p projector and blow it up to say... 92" and it still looks absolutely pristine and perfect. Unless you've got a screen that's 130", I can't imagine really seeing a difference! I'm perfectly happy with the resolution of our screens now and I'd prefer to improve and cheapen the tech we have now than push something else out of the gate. That said, I do think Kleist is probably right... for now. This would probably be offered to places like stores who want big advertisements hanging above you, convention centers, sporting events, concerts, stuff like that. At some point though, someone's gonna want one of these for their own personal use and THEN you'll start to see it moving into homes. I think with the prices of home projectors dropping this technology might become something people want. Hopefully not for a while though. I like what I have.

Combine 8k resolution with 2.39:1 6 color mirasol+full view glassesless 3-D display technology or 2.39:1 6 color FED+Laser+glassless 3-D tech or 2.39:1 6 color laser+glassesless 3-D tech and we have ourselves a deal. The best technologies should merge and not be kept separate, why have a damn LED tv with 8k resolution when you can have next level displays and the full additive+subtractive color spectrum and native anamorphic Panavision widescreen aspect ratio with that resolution? I want the next level of display resolution technology to represent the best we can have.
