[QUOTE=ivid;2689620]Actually ZOD a big factor of 4K is that you can sit closer to a smaller screen and it doesn’t feel as close due to the clarity of the image and smaller pixels, compared to 1080. When I sit closer to my 42" plasma trying to trick my brain to think its 60" , I see the pixels…
If 9.7" iPads can benefit from retina display then I think most TVs will benefit from 4K. That said, we’re a long way from having UHD content good enough to say “yeah I see the difference”[/QUOTE]
Except most people have TV’s in living rooms and what not with the couch (chairs) on the other side. At which point it doesn’t make much of a difference.
Overall I don’t think the world is all that ready to make the leap. Bandwidth caps will keep internet distribution at bay. Most people only upgrade to HD sets in the last few years and aren’t ready for the upgrade. Most cable providers don’t offer 1080p yet and are in no position to deliver 4k.
I would think that 4k would be very useful for computer monitors, I don’t think there will be an agressive take up for home TV’s. Maybe in 5-10 years when there’s significant content for it. Then again by the time people are ready for it, there could be a bigger leap in technology and 4k gets skipped over.
