Plus think of the hard work to talk out better halfs into letting us get a bigger screen.eddgreen25 said:Your comments please on ultra tv
LG maybe next month with a size 84ins
What's the point nothing to view on it
£13,000 in the uk for the LG 85ins 4kNot to mention the astronomical price tag ($22,100) that no 'average' consumer can afford
Pointless maybe, but it's how technology moves forward. Look how long it's taken OLED to become (almost) mainstream, 4k for the masses is a while off, yet they have already started touting 8k
BBC News - Super Hi-Vision 8K TV standard approved by UN agency
Gotta love technology!
Surely with high speed BB now being available to most, that will be the way, streaming from Cloud based films ?????Absolutely no point in this until the content is available to consumers. Given that the current max bit-rate for 4k is 250mb/sec a movie could be over 3TB, so how are the studios going to get that into peoples homes?
By the time a new delivery format is available to consumers the current 4k TVs and projectors are going to have been superseded.
SPR received a new 4K scan a couple of years ago, and that transfer formed the basis of the 1080p Blu-ray. Plenty more movies have been given 4K (or higher) scans.Guy I work with said that saving private Ryan was getting a 4k makeover
2k and 4k material is delivered to cinemas on pre-recorded hard drives. Actually these are much cheaper to produce than the old 35mm film stock. Not sure what the standard is for 'live' satellite transmissions from theatres and concert halls. Our local cinema shows live performances on the big screen from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York.[CynicalHatOn]
We currently have the technology to get perfect HD video and audio via Blu-ray, terrestrial and satellite TV, how often do we get it?
Heck, my local cinema (and its clientele) are happy with 2k on a huge screen. Why should they upgrade?
The technology doesn't seem to be what is getting in the way of our perfect experience.
