It should be possible. It's a fact that it doesn't cost much more to produce a 4k display than it does a 2k one. With existing tech that is, not counting OLED. So we should have affordable 4k TVs right now, yet we don't, and we won't, for a while.
Good point - - but as someone who has a dual setup (65" LCD/LED Samsung) to be coupled with the W1080ST BenQ projector - - I think the golden age of projectors is upon us.
Looking at CES and the ridiculous prices of 4K and OLED TV's - - $25K for a 55" set? Who are they kidding? What "suite spot" do they think they are hitting with those prices?
I know the technology will get better but OLED is a real hit and miss, manufacturing wise. Too many bum panels.
I guess my main point (and besides being excited about my first projector) is that for larger displays - - over 65" - - I do not think you can match the price performance, features and benefits of projector technology.
If there is going to be a breakthrough on 4K, price wise, I think it will be in the projector arena. I just don't see OLED or 4K LED TV's coming down in price that fast - - relative to the technological & manufacturing hurdles.
Besides - - it's a lot easier to get a projector and screen down to my man cave than it is a bulky LCD/LED panel - - no matter how thin it is!
