LG has a TV coming out this year, prior to releasing their BD player next year.

actually the Hobit this year will be shot with a 5k camera.

these are true 4k+2k blurays not upscaling it will play a 4k or 4k+2k movie on bluray with the new compression

There are many movies shot in 4K or greater resolution beyond The Hobbit. LG was simply saying they are expecting there might be a 4K spec for Blu-ray coming next year, but they didn't seem to be announcing anything specific yet. If that happens, great, but until there is a spec it is just a rumor.

This is a good reason not to invest a fortune in tech. There's always something better right around the corner, at an even lower price than today's best.

Who besides me spent $6.5k on a MacPortable back in 1989....and I've still not learned my lesson!


Recent...
$4.2k in 2008 on a Sony VW60 PJ ...now sorta outdated
$3k in 2007 on Denon AVR 4308CI ...lacking AudysseyXT32, dual sub calibration, etc

All we techno people can do is buy our gear, enjoy it....and pray we don't get buyers remorse in 1-2 years when the next advance hits...

Why not 8K @ 120fps?

Aside from tech better than 4k being around the corner, I think the chances of BD4k succeeding are even less than than BD3D. People are happy with 720p Netflix, the amount that would care to invest in 4k would be a niche of an already niche market.

I agree. My oppo bdp-83 and 95 do such a good job of upscaling dvd, I'm not convinced I need bluray that much. I'll buy a movie I want to keep in BD, but my netflix cue is strictly dvd.

If the BDA wants to sell more BDs and increase BD marketshare, instead of releasing BD4k they should lower the licensing cost of BD and drop AACS mandate so smaller indie studios can release on Blu-ray for a similar price that they are currently releasing on DVD. Make BD as cheap as DVD to make & sell, and then eliminate DVD so you aren't marketing two products. Yeah in the short term the BDA will make less money but in the long term they will probably make more.

technology is moving so fast it is literally killing itself. B4 even the latest tech has taken hold they come out with something better. the only thing new about this is the lack of time between new techs coming along.

Technology killing itself (or self killing), now THAT really IS something called "future".

When 4K BD players and TVs come out, do we then need to buy blu ray discs in 4K format? Oh ****...

Things are moving too fast. I hardly know anyone that have Blu-ray players and for the ones who do (mostly PS3 owners) hardly any have BD movies.

I Just got back From the Gadget Show in the UK and was disappointed that there was not a big show and dance about the new 4k TV's that were there (did not even see any at the show but the Internet says there were 3-4 there)
It was all 3D and sub $2k projectors.

In my eyes Blueray and even 5.1-7.1 has not even taken off yet in the uk.
I would say 90% of people have a HD TV in the uk now, but I only know of only 1 other person that uses even that to the max,
Or even understands that heaving a HD tv does not mean anything in less you are playing Bluerays or have a HTPC type setup with blueray rips or even sky HD with a hdmi cable.
One of my m8's was like yer we got sky HD its brill, I go have a look and its not even connected with a hdmi cable just an old scart.
On the way back from the gadget show one of the other 3 people in the car were asking me about why there 42" plasma that's 6ft away from them in there room is all blocky when they have the tv on.
"why is my TV blocky"
"its a HD plasma TV why does it look so bad"
"the ones at the show Look 10X better do I need to get a new TV?"
I role my eyes
He does not even own a DVD player, nor does he have any understanding of anything.
Then we get on to me chatting about 2k and 4k and stuff and there all like "I cannot see it making any difference" "I cannot see any difference on a HD TV now" I shake my head.
We then go to my m8's house because he is like omg you need to see my theatre room its very good.
We get there and I say nothing. Its a HD ready 47" tv in a conservatory that's too bright with a DVD player and some pimp theatre chars
No Blueray, No audio equipment at all not even a crap all in one 5.1 system or anything. No blinds. No clue
I can see why monsta can sell £100-$200 hdmi cables and all the rest of the junk because 99% of people have no clue about anything.
Some might think they know but in reality there as clueless as the sales staff in box stores.
One lad in the car on the way back did not even know that terrestrial analogue TV got switched off in the UK and its all digital now. Or what that even means. "but its still coming from the same aerial how can it of changed?"

OMG people make me so mad.
Semi rant over what was this topic about again?

Netflix is available with 1080p streams on many devices now including a whole range of 2012 BD players.

to be honest i think I wouldn't waste me time on plasmas, from what i've seen I can watch a lcd and not the dreaded pan-scan motion sickness on it on plasma 5-10 min I have to constantly look away as pan-scan produces motion sickness in me..
