    yup.. make it in a 24inch format, and now we will be talking (120dpi, here we come, for some kick-ass smooth text, images and icons!)

    I dont see the point in something this hi def. You'd still need to sit back several feet OR move your head around to see the whole picture. And distance throws resolution out the window. I think for the the uber highend price tag this isnt practical for home use - however it could have some very interesting and cool business applications (think 'fish tank' at a nice restaurant for example).

    Cool tech, but it seems to soon considering that 1080p content is just starting to saturate the market, and I say that lightly.

    There is at least one really large advantage to ultra high definition systems. Dead pixels are a problem because when you have only a thousand or so vertical pixels, a single spot is fairly visiable to the user. As displays get higher resolutions, those bad spots decrease in size proportional to the increase in resolution. This permits manufacturers to be more lenient in their standards since the consumers will no longer notice. Based on the increase in production ratios, their costs will go down since fewer units need to be disposed of and we get cheaper monitors.

    Other applications that I can think of is that if we put light filters on this similar to the ones used on the 3D-DS, we can get glassesless 3D tv's or display multiple programs at different angles.

    Yeah, and we'll only get it in 16:9. **** that. :p

    [/bait]

    It also means your odds of actually getting dead pixels are proportionally increased, all things being the same.

    What? More lenient than they already are? Numerically and in absolute terms, maybe; but I find it hard to believe that the consumer will be the winner in this scenario. It'll just be used as an excuse for the manufacturers to improve their margins, regardless of consumer satisfaction. We should be demanding better, not seeing this as an opportunity to allow worse.
    Not that what we say will make a difference, anyway.

    It's nice that they can do it, but that resolution is only useful in the cinema, not for home use. Cable/sat/iptv still has a long way to go before they fully take advantage of 1080p (or 720p for that matter), both in using the actual resolution and having a sutible bitrate.

    I install IPTV for a living, and much to my dismay, I find that 80% of people with HDTVs think any/all of the following:
    1) Think that regular SD channels are HD just because they have an 'HD' TV
    2) Regular coax/RCA is good enough for HD (vs HDMI/component)
    3) Always want the SD picture stretched to fill the full screen
    etc..

    Surely it would be more than that. 8K pixels on a 24" display.... that's around 350dpi.

    The point is.. as computer monitors seem to be on an all out drive to be the same aspect and resolution as TV these days, the sooner this becomes a TV standard the better for everyone.

    I never quite got why we were falsely limiting ourselves to 1080p. There's so much more out there. But at least we are getting 3D :eyebrow:

    I'll settle for 30" - in 16:10 format of course.

    7680x4320?! That's about 33 megapixels, which is a bit mental compared to ~4 for a 30". We'll need GPUs with a serious amount of VRAM for gaming (around 8-9GB as a minimum by my reckoning) though anti-aliasing may not be such a necessity now.

    I thought the japanese had a "4K" standard already?

    So basically... my father?

    I had to tell him about the first two, and he wanted the 3rd one, despite me telling him that it's going to be all stretched and manky.

    Ugh.

    Don't forget that 4K and 8K are measured using the horizontal pixel count, while the 720 and 1080 HD resolutions use the vertical pixels. Japan hasn't yet moved to 4K. In fact, they still use an analogue broadcast standard in conjunction with their digital standard. They aren't scheduled to fully transition until July 24.

    The video industry has only just started adopting 4K, and that's primarily in the digital cinema world. Processing that much data can quickly become a nightmare. As it is, in the US just about all HD broadcasts are 720p due to bandwidth constraints (1080i for most of Europe). The move to 8K is still way off. For example, Sony's new F65 digital cinema camera uses an 8K sensor but limits the output to 4K due to the way the sensor is designed and used in the camera.

    NHK gave an 8K demo at the 2010 National Association of Broadcasters convention (or maybe it was 2009 - hard to remember). It was projected on a gigantic screen, and it nearly blew me away. However, in my opinion the best part of the 8K standard was the 22.2 surround sound they had configured for the demo. That was what actually made the biggest difference. My living room is still only wired for 5.1, and the acoustics are terrible.

    Funny enough, YouTube of all places is starting to allow uploads of 4K video. Of course, in order to get the bandwidth small enough to stream efficiently, it's heavily compressed.

    TL;DR: Yawn. Wake me in 10 years. By then maybe they'll have finally figured out a way to make 3D interesting.

    Also:
    What hair? :p
