And yes, let's hope that it takes some time. We better dont' have technologies changing every 5 years.
4k yes 8k? it will never happen too expensive

I see no need for 8K or 4K. Instead I rather have cheap HD OLED tvs.

The point of this tech is that you could be inside a small room in your home surrounded by large super high res screens. These screens will be connected to a computer of the future. Just imagine what you could do if you could sit in front of a 100 inch screen from 3 feet away. It would take up all of your vision.

Amen to that! I have recently finished selling off my DVDs so all that i own are blu's, and the quality of BR is brilliant. I will be upgrading my tv to a 55-60 inch set mid-year, and then i will be a happy man. No need for a larger set from then on.

8k?? Don't want it. 4k is all I will ever want or need. It is said to be the most acceptable scan DPI for 35mm prints. Possibly in the future we will all use HDCAM and digital stuff with fantastic image sensors. However at this point in time scanning 35mm movies at 8k I believe will just bring out extra dirt and scratches on the print.

I finished scanning my analog photos and slides recently and ran into the same scenario. I scanned at 300dpi and they look beautiful. I scanned at 600dpi to test for extra detail I could gain. Sharpness looked same and dust was incredibly prevalent.

Even for future material, why do we need so much detail unless we all had 1000" screens?? Post production work is the only reason the extra res could be a good thing.

I've seen the JVC fake 4K and the Sony real 4K projectors. They were a waste of time. I get the same or better results on my 1080P projector. I actually think using something like the Darbee with 1080P was better than 4K. So I can only guess 8K will be a waste too.

Who cares you would probably need a screen about the size of the IMAX for it to make any difference.

I think 4K makes a lot of sense for home projectors with big screens, even if the source is upscaled from a Blu-ray disc.

At home, when I switch from 16:9 (pillar boxed, 102") to 2,35:1 (full screen, 128") you can tell that there is a difference in pixel density and that it could do with more pixels to make up the difference. Even if the source remains the same, I am pretty positive that a good upscaling system would be ably to project the image more comfortably and sharply than in the standard 1:1 pixel scenario, where you do not have any headroom at all.

I think an iPhone is a good example: the first generations displays looked great at the time, but when retina display came out, you could then see all the "flaws" of the older ones.

On the other hand, on my 47" tv, from my sitting distance, I can barely distinguish the difference between 720p and 1080p, in that scenario 4K would be an overkill.

When we move I plan to drop in a 4k projector but thats still years away lol im happy with 1080P and lets be honest they would have to release the 200GB Blu Ray discs for it to even work, lets not even mention the fact the bandwidth isnt there for cable and sat companies to carry a 4k picture hell 99% of them cant even do a 1080P picture lol

I don't think the 4k material will relay on physical disks, I believe streaming from a cloud server will make more sense in the future…
