I came across these videos in 4K resolution and thought I would share them. If you haven't heard of 4K video it is a higher quality from the 1080p media we have now. Plus it looks awesome!

Here is a short video of 4K technology explained.



There is a thread on this from 2012 here www.abovetopsecret.com... and it is worth the read. I feel this tech has advanced and now we are about to see another push to buy the latest model after we all have the best T.V.'s and video monitors. That being said, I am still a sucker for new toys! And these ones look pretty cool This site has Short "promo" video's for what 4k looks like and it looks great no matter what resolution you currently run. Check it out and share your thoughts on this future upgrade. Even though these UHD televisions cost as much as a brand new Toyota.

These two are my favorite. Get a mug of coffee or Vodka...whatever, sit back and set her to full screen volume up! Enjoy!

I'm very excited about 4k. Hopefully one day in the not so distant future they will be less expensive. It's just way too rich for my blood. As much as I love my tech stuff, I don't love it enough to get a loan just to have it lol. One day.....one day.

Edit- That guy did a really good job of explaining it.

I am sick and tired of this crap.

More resolution, more resolution! Spend like their is no tomorrow.

Waste our resources.

Build crap and don't offer repair options! Buy today - broke tomorrow.

How about society takes a breather and spends money on education, the homeless and the elderly.

We only spend big on war and the newest tech. But don't worry, big government will save you or screw you.

We need to get our priorities right.

The problem, even with HD, is that the bandwidth seems to not be there to broadcast a whole lot of full hd channels. To really get this done a shift to fibreglass is needed and that is going to be a rather big overhaul to the current infrastructure. For theatres and (freak) home theatres it'll be a blast but as a tele, even hd as it is, is a downer. The channels claiming to broadcast HD might look sleek but compare it to what you get from bluray and you'll know you are getting highly compressed feeds at best.

Looking at it on a 4k device wont make it a better experience. So as full-hd broadcasting is still in it's infancy, 3d-hd is something for the future and I would not even consider getting 4k until my current projector dies of old age. By then 16k will be out and the infrastructure hopefully ready.

Then again.. the first hd tele's where presented back in the 90's and didn't become mainstream until a few years after 2k so maybe this needs to be introduced now to get in sync with some planned change in infrastructure and we'll look back at hd as an in between stage somewhere mid 30's/40's.

I agree about the priorities thing but personally I am glad we haven't taken a breather on the tech thing. Could you imagine if we had? Trying to log onto ATS on this:

Or trying to watch a movie on one of these again:

Progress is good lol.

I used to watch TV on one of those! Or close to it!

Yes, they are better today! But, it has got out of hand. Programs, operating systems, all manner of things, they just bring out new versions for the sake of it. The only use for this sort of resolution is if you increase the size of TVs to cover the whole wall!

Sure, the elite can purchase, but where does it stop. When do we stop and be thankful for what we have and decide to put some effort into helping others. Could we not take a breather for 50 years or so and catch up on our humanity a little, just a little, PLEASE!

I agree with you.
I have a colleague who, in the time we have worked together, must have spent thousands of pounds on always upgrading to the newest and highest tech when it comes to TV's. With 4K, it's all very well and good having such high resolution, but how discernible is it to the naked eye over current consumer tech. You'll only ever get any benefit if you freeze frame and zoom into the image, which I'm sure not many will be doing whilst watching Fast and Furious 25 on their shiny new screen!


As has already been mentioned, there is already hardly any bandwidth availability to stream HD movies and TV programmes, it's all very limited, so where is this magically to spring from? I think it's always been this way though, the bright and shiny tech appears but there isn't the infrastructure to fully support it's capabilities, but still parts fools from their money. I am always reminded of the skit The Onion News Network did a few years ago - do a search for The Onion Sony and watch the link, if you are not offended by bad language! Sums it up nicely I think.

It does make me wonder, most of the people I know with huge tvs have them sitting in rooms that are way too small for them, so you wind up with this rather cramped and claustrophobic viewing experience.

It's like sitting in the front row of the cinema. And I hate sitting in the front row of the cinema.

The biggest issue is with ISP blocking SHDTV and 3D streaming. Verizon, for example, won't allow Netflix to stream 3D content to its customers currently. They want to force people to use their streaming service, RedBox --- even though there is little or no SHDTV/3D content available through RedBox.

Many of the best movies ever made WAS shown on those TV's so I would have no problem watching movies on them again. Hollywood has to rely on CGI to make up for the lack of talent when it comes to actors and screenwriters nowadays.

We have a 52" plasma which is rather old now and which can "only" display 1376x768 ie. 720p content.
We sit approx. 4-5m away from it, but in the apt. we lived previously we were closer, maybe 2m.

So or so, while I think there may be SOME differences eg. if it was a true HD 1080p I THINK the perceived difference would be minimal.
RESOLUTION is really not everything, there are many more factors which make a picture "look good"...there is (in my opinion) no reasonable reason to have 4096k horiz. pixel resolution, it's just silly IMHO.

It's the same silliness with eg. manufacturers making digital cameras with insane pixel resolutions like 16MP pixels or 32MP pixels and people thinking it's "better" (a 16MP pixel image would not even fit on most people's monitor/screen, they will have to considerably resize it to even be able to see the full picture). And then having some "32MP digital camera" but the crappiest optics etc...makes no sense!

If some demo 4k footage looks amazing I have reason to believe that there other factors which make the footage amazing, but resolution is NOT it...not for "normal" sized displays at normal viewing distance where I don't think it matters.

4k... 6k---20k... whatever... Question is what is going to watch on those pixels..? Stupid reality shows or hoax news form CNN/FOX? Or stupid reprise TV shows from the 80’s?

I don't know about that. We just recently replaced our 10yr old 720HDTV with a new 1080HDTV and holy crap. There most certainly is a BIG, easily perceived difference in the picture quality. Night and day.

No doubt. I agree. I love old movies and tv series. I was simply talking about picture quality not content. Tales Of Tomorrow is one of my all time favorite series.

Gotta make sure the programing is coming in loud and clear right...

People will buy it, I remember when flat screens first hit the market and cost upwards of $8000. Most people will be too proud to not buy new fancy tvs "we must have the latest tech to look cool in front of out peers" Too narrow minded to even being to think about what it is they are paying for.

Just a thought can you imagine 4k porn.....

So I'm guessing you'll be trashing the PC used to make that post, seeing how it wasted so many resources in development that could have been used on so many other, more tangible things.

Meh, someone pointed it out earlier in the thread, there is NO WAY to even remotely serve you a 4k feed. Total marketing hype for a good long while. Until we can get glass in the ground for more than just the primary internet backbone (or someone comes up with a really, really good compression technique), it just ain't gonna happen. Now if they could start making an affordable large OLED screen, I'd be into checking that out.

I do not believe your reply is very sensible. It suggests black and white arguments. Arguments at the extremes just to make a point.

No, we can keep our laptops and all the other nice things we have worked hard to acquire.

We have the technology to make light globes, toasters, fry-pans and computers that have a very long expected lifetime instead of building with planned obsolescence. So much is wasted just so big corporations can continue to make a buck off our slave backs.

If we were not wasting so much, just think what we could do to help in this world. But yea, OK, argue at the extremes if you must!
