Just so you know, practically all TV's are capable of displaying much higher than 48fps [In reply to] Can't Post

My TV runs at 600hz for goodness sake! Most are 60 to 120hz. You'd need at least 120 to display 48fps in 3D, because each image needs to be shown twice (once for each eye). Also, all Blu-ray players should theoretically be able to play movies at these rates with slight adjustment (a software upgrade for most). The only things stopping TH from coming out in HFR are:

1 - 48fps isn't a standard format, so they'd need to put a lot of money into creating the format and distributing software downloads for players.

And

2- There's not enough memory on a Blu-ray disc for a movie of this size (Although, spreading it over 2 discs would surely be welcomed by fans)

Regarding 4K TVs

Don't get me wrong, this is exciting technology. But you should probably be aware that even on a large TV (50") you wouldn't see much (or any) difference in 4K and HD.

The reason 4K is exciting, though is that it means we can get bigger TV's. This is why, if you look at any 4K models, they are all from around 80" and up - Not the best size for your bedroom. But home-theater owners should be excited! The thing that confuses me, though, if you have the money and space for an 80" TV you should probably just get a projector? It'd look better and probably be cheaper too Crazy

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