Wowowow. That is so sexy. Lol this will be EXPENSIVE. i dont think that saving now andeven with alot of prayer that i can afford it. But i want to see it in person.
Nice for demo shows. But are there any movies planned to be released in this resolution? Are there any games planned for this resolution (at this time, when most of the games are not even full HD).
For video/gaming purposes it is uselles. For vacation photo slideshow it is overkill.
Looks like it's wider than a normal TV. I saw the new wider monitors the other day would be nice to have some tv's that are theater wide for movie watching.
The best thing about this newer, bigger, better gear that keeps coming out is that it drives down the price of existing products.
This will be outrageous to use, but it will be too much for most of us to afford.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
Wonder what panel they are using (when LG announced this size screen in a product a week ago)...so take the 20k LG price, add Sony tax...hmm. 25-30k?
Also yeah, it will be a decade or so before 4k hits a 50% penetration rate, probably 5 or so years before most people can afford a sane-sized screen, and of course a game console would not be geared towards it until the gen after the upcoming one (if we don't go all streaming). That said, this completes the chicken/egg scenario.
Yes, there is 4k content shot for movies, and it will trickle downwards to other media and then prosumers and consumers...more content will emerge as the market grows because people acquire >1080p displays.
In the meantime there are 4k upscalers in everything from AVRs (like Marvel's chips) to even gpu/cpus, not to mention current and future gpu solutions not only allow, but going forward should make this resolution a PC gaming reality because the standard 'spec' for games will be 1080p and geared toward the grunt of the xbox3/ps4. If you figure Moore's Law into things, the mainstream (midrange GPUs) should be able to play 4k by around the next full node after 20nm. To bring that full circle, that's about 5-6 years...when most people will start buying these displays.
Lol even if I could afford one, I'd have to borrow someones pick up truck in order to get it home, as it would never fit inside my Saturn. Wonder how heavy it is, and if it could be wall mounted with out structural reinforcement. lol
4k is really sexy in paper. I want one. But then I think.. Pixels of that density aren't visible to the human eye, if you sit the recommended distance from the screen.
So I ask..
Leixani.... What do you mean it's not suitable for gaming?! Or that a game doesn't run at that resolution?? If you are referring to consoles then you are correct a 360 or PS3 don't have games that natively run at anything above 1080p and even if they did the consoles wouldn't be able to pipe it out... So what about PC's? Especially if you're running beefy videocards, SLI, etc, why wouldn't you be able to pump out this resolution? I was running resolutions much higher than 1080p on my 20-24" computer monitors back in 2004 well before HDTV's were mainstream and I still owned a CRT TV. What it looks like is since there isn't any 4k content that this would be ideal ONLY for gaming to the average consumer who can't create 4k content on their own.
What do you mean you can't see pixels of that density it you sit at the recommended distance? If you mean you can't see individual pixels then you are correct but that's completely the point and eventually you won't be able to see one single pixel unless you use a magnifier. But that doesn't mean you don't see it if you didn't then you wouldn't see a picture at all or you would be seeing gaps/artifacts in the picture because of the pixels you can't see.... But none of thanks true. If the tv was made up of 1 single pixel yeah you probably couldn't see it but all of them working together will actually give you a much denser and realistic looking image. Go outside and look at a tree, you don't notice ever pixel sized area on the tree but the tree as a whole has a lot of detail and is pretty realistic isn't it lol
On the flip side I really REALLY feel that 4k TVs are already obsolete.... With 8k sets being simultaneously developed there is no way a 4k tv looks attractive and I'll buy in when 8k is out rather than a 4k and within 2~ years upgrade to an 8k.
