So, any further away than 5ft and there's no point in 4k on a 40" screen (if you could find any content)

i had browse around JL today and saw a Sony TV playing various Blu-Ray trailers and the CGI picture quality was immense, well for £2K it should be, but the problem i found was, it was too good, so good the footage of the actors didn't look like they were part of the film, with someone wandering around a studio with a video camera (no doubt a very expensive video camera). makes me wonder do we really need UHD TV's as most of use are already detached from ''the real world'' with our mobile phones and tablets

good price, but by the time there is actually 4k content, 4k tv's will be on a newer generation, better quality and cheaper,. So if you buy one now (unless you play pc games at 4K) you're wasting your money.

TV bed. I think the biggest you get at the moment is 32" as any bigger and you can see the picture degradation.

Not to mention we've barely hit 1080p as standard, HD channels are still very compressed - a film on Film4 HD is worse than a blu ray copy. And some games on XB1 and PS4 are still sub-1080p. I reckon the only true 4K content we'll get 'relatively' soon is on disc, then wait an eternity for TV/games etc.

Most 4k TVs can't actually display 4k video, only 4k pictures. It's the whole hd-ready (720p) phase again, if you remember. This phase, it's 4k-ready TVs that can't display actual 4k video.

I don't think it will be as long as the jump from SD to HD. The BBC are already trialing 4k behind closed doors with world cup football. I'd expect some selected public trials next year (probably Wimbledon) and 2016 Olympics to be broadcast in 4k on freesat.
As for over the air broadcasts it will be much later as they will need to wait until the majority of TVs are DVB-T2 compliant (FreeviewHD) so the current SD channels can I've from DVB-T to DVB-T2 to free up space on the spectrum.

This article is definitely worth a read if you want to learn more about the negligible benefits of 4K. Seems like the BBC aren't all that keen on it as the improvements over 1080p are really in better frame rates and sound quality, rather than extra pixels.

The TV would need to support HDMI 2.0 and 60Hz @ 4K resolution, most are HDMI 1.4 and 30Hz @ 4K which is horrible.

Would be good as a big-ass monitor
#21
Are all these 4K sets going to be LCDs because they've never matched plasmas IMO?

Felt the same after watching the Hobbit at the IMAX. The picture was too good and showed up the sets for what they were - film sets. Definitely spoilt the illusion but I can imagine animated films and eventually gaming in 4K will be pretty darn good.

The picture is only going to be as good as the picture sent- there is no 4k content on tv so I honestly don't know why you would look to buy one. Most program's are not even HD, people still buying DVDs ffs. Until everything is 1080p no real point in looking beyond that res.

More than likely that people are after a new TV now so want to future proof themselves

I heard that current Bluray films at their current highest resolution looks better on a 4K TV. SO it sounds like the upscaling is better than any other current offerings.

I have a customer at work who is head of Ultra HD and 3D at the BBC he advised me NOT to buy 4K until it reaches 'phase 2' as the current models are no where near as good as what is coming. (also by the time they release the phase 2 4k stuff next year the plan is to have ultra HD content available across multiple platforms too). I would wait.

You shouldn't just go by articles and believe everything in them. Seriously, go to richer sounds and look at the 40 inch 4k samsung, anyone that says they can't tell the difference are lying. I can see pixels on a 40 inch with blu ray so the chart you gave is rubbish too.

And I guess when 8K will be out, there'd be no point in buying that as well as 16K will not be too far off the production line either?

I saw a demo recently showing a Samsung TV upscaling of 1080p content to 4k and it was deeply impressive, although the demo I saw was for a brand-new model.

You'd have some difficulty calling Mr McWhirter. He died in 2004.

To the people saying they can see a difference between 1080p and 4k TVs at demos, you may be right, but there are so many factors besides pixel resolution. There are good 1080p TVs and there are bad ones also. What was the viewing distance? At a certain distance, you'll be able to distinguish the individual pixels. Were they both calibrated properly? Probably not if they were being showcased. Were there any filters applied to either TV? A lot of people seem to get fooled by edge enhancement etc. It can make the picture look sharper at first glance, but it tends to introduce artefacts. Bumping up the contrast can also make the picture look nicer, but will mess up the dynamics. What was the content? You're more likely to notice a difference with games than with film. Was its perceived resolution as good as the pixel resolution? A DVD upscale will not look as good as a video mastered for the TV's resolution.

Bit like the car industry in a way, they build cars capable of 200mph+ and sell them in countries with 70mph speed limits!

according to the chaps on BBC click 8k is the best your eyes can process so no point in going any further after that
