"8K" in and of itself can't be "the limit of human vision". It's not well enough defined, because our visual acuity is measured in angles. Both distance and size are left out of "8K" and both are...

Isn't that your player? The projector just displays what's sent and if your player uses the whole 16:9 screen for symbols and control, then that's what it does. I don't think there's a "projector"...

Unfortunately we are recovering from a construction project and the theater is still being used as storage. It is usable (my wife really enjoys it) but it's got stuff piled around. I'll see what i...

That's exactly what I did too. It looks very cool, the image hangs in space. The bottom doesn't need to be stabilized unless you have kids or a dog running into it. It hangs just fine if left alone....

It's really not the same. I'm not talking more shades between colors within the current color gamut. That doesn't really bring much to the table. I'm talking colors and saturation levels well beyond...

Yes, I meant viewing angle.

It's not the "next best thing" because a wider color gamut and high dynamic range offer much more eye candy than just more resolution beyond 4k. I haven't put the new...

Dithering isn't great. 1:1 pixel mapping with the source is always the best. And dithering can't create colors that are outside the media's color capabilities. Dithering can't add saturation where...

Way more. That's the point Fierce and I are making. Let's not be pixel whores at the expense of other more important measures of quality... especially when we've already got 4k in production!

Don't forget projectors. Projectors will be able to produce an 8k image considerably larger than 85" for considerably less than $133,000!

But, I for one, think 8k is a waste of bandwidth better...

My bright corners were slight and did go away. And I've never noticed any streaking on mine... (sorry)

That are 4k compatible... right?... right?? :) And maybe even 3D compatible, though that is less of a priority. And don't cost what the Lumagens do, of course.
