Hi guys im confused here, i know that on a passive 1080p 3d sets, its best to watch videos with o/u rather than sbs. but what about on 4k tvs? will the sbs be better and have more resolution than o/u ?

im thinking side will be up scaled by the tv to 4k than half the resolution because of it being passive but will still get a 1080p on each eye? is that correct?

4k passive 3D TV will be best with frame packed 3D: each 1920x1080p eye view will simply be scaled 2x in the horizontal direction and interlaced together to provide the 2160p vertical frame.

SBS is essentially 960x1080p eye view, so should be treated similarly, but scaled 4x in the horizontal direction. OU could get a bit tricky, but both SBS and OU lose resolution in one direction or another. Why would you go for a high resolution TV only to watch 3D material that does not do it's capability justice? That would be like only watching DVDs on a 1080p TV.

Note that 4k TV with full resolution passive 3D polariser is only possible with certain size screens and technologies: LCD is difficult to achieve cross-talk free results on anything less than 65", whilst the lower fill factor of LG's WOLED apparently means full resolution 3D is possible down to 55".
