Those incremental steps continually fuel the money machine...and drive us crazy trying to keep up in the process. If everyone had FttH (Fiber-to-the-Home), 8K would be much easier to broadcast and roll out at a much faster rate. We need better infrastructure in place so we can even utilize the full capabilities of 8K, it's only as fast as the weakest link. If it's doable OTA (over-the-air) like DirecTV, or via satellite laser broadcast like Japan NHK has been testing, that would be even better. Granted it would probably be highly compressed 4320i (interlaced) for 16:9 broadcast material.

Just give me 8K | Rec. 2020 | 4:4:4 | 120fps | 48-bit color depth | 64 audio channels | and a top shelf margarita with a shot of Grand Marnier on the side, pronto! Is that too much to ask for?

it looks like Cine4home has seen a pre-production model, I'd like to hear what he thinks about it.

It has some interesting wireless features built in like Miracast which I use all the time with my Android and Win 8.1 Surface to broadcast photos and video to my TV's / Projectors. It also claims 3D support, 2D -> 3D + CFI.
here is a lengthy discussion on this new pico 1080P model from Cine4home and I can't understand a word of it.

It looks like they are taking a good look at the PQ @ around 20 mins in, running through a variety of different content. I would like to know what Ekkehart is saying.

Anyone speak german that can assist with a basic executive summary? This looks brighter than I was expecting.

Z10K


Der screen in the HT is 3,5 m wide


Ekki talk about that they are ( positive ) surprised over the projector, its not without weak sides, but very impressive.


The pixels is Sharp and defined on the full HD material


The Picture you see in the video is with the projector in eco mode ( 3,5 wide Picture ! ) and the projector is very
silent, about as the best "normal" HT projectors in noise .


They find the Frame Interpolation to Work good.


It has many adjustment possibilities ( gamma, CMS, color temperature etc. )


They find the colors to be very natural and very impressive (just the blue can be a Little to powerful )


Its biggest weakness is the absolute Black level and contrast, most on the very dark scenes, by brighter Things in the images was it not a problem. ( but here it is not on level with good HT projectors )


In generel the find the sharpness and FI to be good and the brightness to be impressive ( more then good )
It should do 3D and have enough light for it ( but they didnt test it, becouse it was a proto type, that didnt have the 3D implanted yet ).


After that, they show some Pictures with a HT projector making the left half part of the Picture and the LG the right part ( especially the starry sky, have it problems displaying properly )


later they show a dark blue scene, where the LED LG make the blue color a Little violet compared to the HT proj.


Other Things: they miss a lens shift and the zoom is to small, but all in all they where ver impressed and believed that it could easily cost much more, considering its picture quality and light output.


good night ( its early morning now here )
