Hopefully that will spur 1080p live production. However with 4K now making appearances at CES for both acquisition and display including panels and home projection, and internet increasing the share of media delivery to home with better codecs on the horizon such as h.265, I wonder if 1080p will be bypassed. I know I'm biased against JVC somewhat, but a 4k camcorder for less than $5k this year shows how fast 4k is moving. OK I know it's not an Alexa or a Red, but that's still is a significant step forward to me.
Once we get to home 4K (and especially 8k), will theaters survive? I know there are still many, perhaps even a majority, who still prefer the communal viewing experience, but for those who are growing up with high quality home viewing will that continue? Will HD be considered low-def?
