And I'm sure they will think of new applications that 8K and up will be a benefit for tek we haven't dreamt of yet. Who would have thought we would ever have an a portable wireless phone that serves as a personal computer back in the 90's when a personal computer was an enormous cube that took all day to work. I remember older people talking about how useless they were and how they were a fad that people with to much money would buy just to keep up with Jonses lol

I'm old enough to remember when there was no such thing as the internet and computers were only used at work for typing up reports or for investment/banking stuff.

I think 8K is pretty pointless when most people don't even buy stuff in 4K.

Special effects are rendered in 2K and still takes weeks/months. Rendering out special effects in 4K doesn't seem viable.

Blu-rays are probably the last stop for me and my physical media collecting. For the kinds of films I like, 4K just doesn’t make sense. I remember saying that about dvds though so who knows. I wonder how long companies will continue to release films on blu-ray.

Given that the next-gen consoles will utilize UHD for actual games, I imagine smaller physical releases will only need a Blu-ray. Plus UHD players play all previous digital disc formats with the exception of VCD.

Plus the adoption rate of 4K will never reach HDTV/Blu-ray levels, so I can see Blu-rays being made for more than another decade.

8K can probably be good in medicals for operation and diagnostics on a very deep level I guess.

If 8K does make it to home media, it (optimistically) might be bundled with 12-bit, improved HDR, a bigger color space than BT.2020 and BT.2100, and H.266/MPEG-I VVC. Maybe 16-bit might (optimistically) bring 3D into the mix, plus H.267.

I was strongly considering 4K UHD, but maybe I should wait for 8K? This frequent upgrading can get to be very expensive. But of course that's what keeps the A/V industry in business.

The tech giants will push for it but 4k is just beyond t xender discord omegle he visual acuity of most people at regular screen sizes, unless wall size projectors or Cinema screens become the norm. I struggle to see 8k taking off unless screens become so cheap that you may as well just use them.
Okay, right, well what I mean is IF it is ever a home media format, it will be like Divx, it won't be like blu-ray, DVD, VHS or even laserdisc. It will be something that pops up for 5 seconds and nobody buys it, because it will be prohibitively difficult to create content for and nobody will be able to see the advantage of it except a few, very rich people.

If they ever come out with a gaming console that plays 8K movies I may pick a couple of them up but I don't see that happening any time soon.

I said new tech, movies have been around already. I'm sure 8k can and will be used for a different purpose

Default stranger things have happened


stranger things have happened

- although i do not 'currently understand it' (the logic/practicality of it)

- 'someday' 8K 'will be' common place

- 'or' coexist in a reality of 'all' currently available video formats (SD/SDR - HD/SDR - UHD/HDR)

"strange thinking"?

Manner to cover your bases, there. it may not ever be a home media format except for perhaps a short fad. so it will and it won't.
