At the end of the day, the human eye can only perceive the difference to a degree. From what I have read and seen, you need at least a +100" screen sitting at normal viewing distances to see the difference between HD and UHD. Since that doesn't fit the majority of individuals, nor will it ever, I doubt that this technology will ever become mainstream. Eventually it will, but I give it 20+ years.

Here is the chart I reference:



But it is beautiful to see that they are still improving the technology.

Display technology > our eyes. 1080p will be fine for many years to come. Why would I buy a new TV with higher resolution, just to have to sit 5 feet closer to notice any difference?

LOL I still don't have a big enough TV to fully appreciate the benefit of 1080p, so there's no way I'm getting this for a LONG time.

Unbelievable picture though!

Yes you would see the difference with a upgrade to UHD.

Who in the hell sits 5 feet from the tv then has 3x the space behind them ....have you ever walked into a house with the couch right infront of the tv and a big area behind it?

Yes, you would see a difference (if you were watching UHD content), but you probably wouldn't be able to resolve any more than 2560x1440 res. I calculate that to resolve 2560x1440 res on a 120" screen, with 20:20 vision you'd need to be a maximum of 11.77 feet away.

Super Hi-Vision / UHD is 7680x4320 res. With a 120" screen at that resolution, if you wanted to fully resolve all the pixels, I think you'd need to be no more than 3.92 feet away.

Ultra HDTV will only be useful if you build an ACTUAL COMMERCIAL THEATRE inside your house. At the average 50" TV size, there would be extremely negligible difference in image quality.

Where it might come in handy is in 3D rendering on smaller "big" screens.

Super-HiVision/UHDTV is 7680x4320 at 60 fps (and they're saying they might want to increase it above 60 fps). I don't think any actual commercial digital theatre can do that. But yes, projectors would be better if you wanted full res (and/or if they can make them big enough & cheap - OLED or something like - FOLED).

Wait, then why is it that I can see differences in quality on my computer monitor? Even @ higher resolutions.

I can sit as close as 8' no problem. It's pretty intense that close and I prefer at least 10-12'. 11.77 feet is damn near 12' ~3" difference. I think I'd be okay and my vision is a hair better than 20:20 with my glasses.

At that distance you'd be able to resolve all 7680x4320 pixels of Super Hi-Vision!
