I would have a wall that big if 1980's architects did not do silly things like put fireplaces in the way. Couldn't they foresee the age of movie-theater sized screens in the house? Also, couldn't the designers foresee the need to have enough breaker capacity to supply our stadium-sized amplifier systems?
[citation][nom]bwanaheim[/nom]Higher resolution can be a benefit for people who have local content. However, we must not forget that the current HD standards (mostly 1080i and 720p) were developed to support over-the-air reception and balance range vs. data rate. Some people still use antenna for television reception. 2160p would not work well for over-the-air transmission. However, if BD-XL evolves and becomes more prevalent, perhaps 2160p would be more feasible. Not all of us have the room for 70" televisions, though.[/citation]
Um Dude? Really That is your stand on this >? i guaren#u
Yeah, I would love to see higher definition content become standard, higher than 1080p that is. I'm constantly annoyed by the move DOWN to 1080p from 1920x1200p for most of us or 2560x1600p for those that can afford it. Granted this was mainly noticeable only in gaming since studios didn't start releasing movie content in high def, but as screens get increasingly larger, the limits of 1080p start to show. I personally am one who loves seeing actors look like real humans instead of airbrushed people.
Of course I'm still much happier now than back when I had the tv with a volume knob and buttons beside the screen, with it's constant noise lol.
While this is an impressive achievement I do question the utility. Most TVs are fed compressed media that shows encoding artifacts. What's the point of having more pixels to see a detailed crappy image?
Upconvert? I'm pretty sure these companies creating displays that have the abilities to go beyond our current resolution sizes have software formats to adopt the higher resolutions, much less the hardware. Mainstream, of course, is where it matters and this won't be around for a while. As with anything technology related, hardware is exceeding software by leaps and bounds now and is progressively increasing its lead.
BD-R/RE v4.0 are capable of 100GB. Given that most movies in 1080p don't even take up 1/2 the space available on a BD-R 25GB, double the size fitting on a BD-R isn't a problem.
[citation][nom]Pyroflea[/nom]I just... don't see the point anymore. HD already looks better than real life does. How can you improve upon that?[/citation]
Uhh, that isn't possible. >.< Diminishing returns at this point. Of course this is the reason the display is 70" and not smaller. You wouldn't be able to see it at sizes less than that.
[citation][nom]amk09[/nom]Whats wrong is that you will having nothing to watch on it that actually takes advantage of it. Most people still don't take full advantage of their 1080p tv's...damn 720p channels/720p console games[/citation]
[citation][nom]Bolbi[/nom]3,840 x 2,160? Current GPUs, even workstation cards, only support a maximum resolution of 2560x1600! What are you going to hook this thing up to?[/citation]
Yes, lets lock down display evolution now. No more progress please. "640KB should be enough for everyone." /sarcasm
