Hence this crap we will be getting in downloads and the likes. Took years to get 1080P into homes yet (some) insisted on putting SD on through their displays. Now "apparently" U-HD will be the saviour of us all lol.
It would be yes, like 1080P would have been if the general public (i'm not talking about enthusiasts and experts) had got to grips with the fact they have HD displays capable of stunning HD but couldn't be that bothered (perhaps now and then) to do it and aunty Margaret took the safe option of buying DVD'S for Christmas stockings instead of forking out just a few dollars more for blu-ray's for the HD tv's at home that probably herself and family insisted on having at home.
Now these types of people who insisted consciously or sub consciously in keeping the SD debacle going are now all of a sudden going to drop their SD DVD's on their 1080P plasmas and LCD's to go for UHD/4K whatever you want to call it on yet again a new higher resolution capable display like the 720p and 1080p's before it.
Ain't going to happen...
Well not for a long time anyway.
