Terabytes? [In reply to] Can't Post

In Reply To
With near-future technology, you'd need either flash drives (of which they've developed 1Terabyte ones) or hard drives.

Only in unpacked lossless format would you need that much space. In mp4 format the file-size would be a fraction of it, and new formats are developed specifically for ultra-HD content. The actual space-requirements are ultimately unlikely to be more than 2-4 times the normal HD requirements, and are more likely to be digitally distributed as paid downloads than sold on discs by the point where the consumer models manifest, as it's unlikely that we'll see a new devoted physical media, any more. After Blu-ray the general consumer-base is unlikely to pay more for simply sharper picture quality. leaving the Ultra-HD for the same crowd who currently buy the high-end Hi-Fi equipment. It's going to take more than simple change in the picture quality to get the public seriously interested, at this point.
