It matters to studios and for the longevity of the format. I doubt very much that UHD at $100M is going to have anywhere near Laserdisc longevity, especially in a world of streaming.

There is a 0% chance of this happening. The vast majority of BluRay households won't have 4K TVs for quite a while. Nor will they be disc buyers. So, no.

Lord no. That's a giant dongle. People have rejected every dongle TV ever.

That's not changing just because the display is thinner.

Yes.


Yes.

It's fake, so it doesn't need workable video or power interfaces.

That's how all these demos are done. It's one-off cabling to show off some sexy thing no one is building.

In other words, it's good they have confidence in things...

Market size for a 4K physical media format? Pretty darned small.

I suppose the former is smaller than the latter.

Me knows you wildly overestimate what's inside of TVs. You also likely tolerate latency and dropped frames. TV makers don't. Thank goodness.
