Yeah ... wait the five or so years before it comes out ... and maybe by that time you can save the $20K or more that it will cost.
I'm going to have a 4K Laser projector first. Maybe this year if it isn't too expensive.
Then I will wait for a 8K TV, like the one Sharp showed last year. Good for full 4K resolution 3D, maybe even glass free.
Several big budget 3D movies are being shot in 48fps 4K this year, so by the time 8K TV's are affordable there should be quite a lot of 4K 3D content.
Summer Olympics in London will have 8K test broadcasts to several places in Britain, Japan and Washington DC, if everything goes to plan. Regular 8K test broadcast in Japan in 2020.
Remember that 4K is six times more rez than 1080p, so maybe in 5 years there will be some 4K media you can watch on it.
No it isn't.
4K TV is four times HD 3840x2160, or Quad HD if you like (about 8MP).
4K Movie standard is slightly larger.
8K is 7680 × 4320, 33MP.
