Media adoption [In reply to] Can't Post

Media adoption is an incredibly slow process. Consumers are still stuck on DVDs (while watching them on 1080p televisions) and reluctant to change media. I imagine by the time 4K televisions are widely available, Blu-rays might finally have over taken DVD's. 4K media is a far way out, because file sizes are massive (keep in mind, few theatres even project in 4K, many are in 2K), going up to terabytes. I'm not sure if there are single discs that can hold that much. With near-future technology, you'd need either flash drives (of which they've developed 1Terabyte ones) or hard drives.

So, assuming that 4K becomes mainstream, physical media exists to play it (or else it'll be a download so large, you'd max out your internet usage by getting it) .. I would love to. It'd look fantastic.

I'll give it 10-15 years.

            Just so you know, practically all TV's are capable of displaying much higher than 48fps QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Jan 9 2013, 9:08pm

                    For 3D, a projector would be much better QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Jan 10 2013, 1:55pm
