Bump in the Road - Parallel Universe is far surpassing our current technology with their 256K Holographic Technology that can be either viewed, or be interactive. That Universe is currently putting up static shields to stop unwanted Corruption from our Universe. Speed will be put to a dead stop!
Another great piece of writing Scott. You, Imagic and the rest of the AVS writing crew are the best. I read you guys with the eagerness I used to read Harry Pearson and J Gordon Holt in my friskier days.
R squared D Squared ("Twice the Research, Twice the Development")? Shame on them, 2R 2D is twice the reserach twice the development. R squared D Squared is R times the research R times the development. Great development though. Really exciting stuff. The future is bright indeed, for all those UltraHD deniers, of which there are fewer and fewer each day.
This system should also work for 16K holographic. I can't wait.
When you mentioned quantum computing, I checked the date and realized it was an April Fools joke. Love it.
On a more serious note, the development of new dramatically based codecs promises to solve the bandwidth problem in a different way. Instead of increasing the total of bandwidth available for piping programs into the home with each program occupying a fixed amount of bandwidth, we can now contemplate a future in which individual programs are compressed more each year, so that each uses less and less bandwidth. Thus, the total of bandwidth available need not increase with the increase in number of programs that need to be crammed into it. The older codecs were based on simple perceptual principles, to capitalize on redundancies to achieve greater compression without any apparent loss of quality. This new class of dramatic codecs do something similar, but they achieve much higher levels of compression by capitalizing on dramatic repetition and other forms of monotony which, as we can all observe with TV programming, tend to increase with time.
the explanation of how the machine could look into the future was by using lenses that can look along the curvature of space to see the future. Does this mean that the curved hypernet would see future web pages and download programs from the future?
My very humble setup:
Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (110Mbps/12Mbps).
LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Preferred Plus), DVD/VHS player.
