It's unlike the codec is going to get more efficient over time. I'm sure the "2x" estimate is based on running through test cases of the algorithm. Encoding is not meaningfully limited by hardware...

Not really much has changed actually. Virtually no TVs over $2,400 are even sold. That the 65+" category has moved to UHD doesn't make the 65+" category meaningfully larger. It's about as much larger...
