I’ll note that Sony is using PS3 -kiosk models for driving digital signage in the commercial domain … possibly quite unsuccessfully, looking at the pricing we received.
I have, well the company I work for has, just quoted a simple 120" Digital signage wall (2x 2x 60" Bezzleless Panels) which is in total 2560x1440p, and many commercial panel models 46-55" are coming in 2x2 x1080p = 4K2K
I don’t doubt that 4K2K will be heavily used … whether it’s by consumers is a totally different kettle of fish
Anyone using a 2x2 PC screen configuration will definitely use 4K2K … if that is over a single HDMI v1.4 or single display port, with the monitors automatically arranging, that would be nice … but wishing too much.
Probably won’t happen, but we can dream
At any rate, if anyone under 30 sees a 4K2K screen, they might suggest that 1080p is a little too low def in comparison.
If you build it, they will come. 1080p is nice, but it’s not impossible to see the difference on a semi large screen.
I’m mid-30’s and I can tell the difference between 720p & 1080p on my tiny 46" TV.
The local theatre, I noted, is projecting at 720p on a very large screen. Another 4K2K application.
At any rate, if the PS4 is capable of rendering 4K2K at any decent frame-rate, it can easily render 2k1K with ease. Future-proofing perhaps …
