Screw High Definition. We're getting ULTRA-High Definition.

So I found this after doing a bit of lazing on the internet.

As most of you know, HD is now part of our TV's at home, whereas before, that sort of stuff was left for the cinemas. HD has made the magical world of TV that bit clearer, and made all those ugly wrinkles on every TV stars faces shine brighter than ever.

Full High definition is shown at a resolution of 1080 pixels high, by 1920 pixels wide.

Ultra High definition will be shown at a ridiculous 4320 pixels high, by 7680 pixels wide. That's 16 times higher that HDTV.
If anybody has been to an IMAX, that's roughly the same resolution.

Obviously, this resolution would look crap on an average 32" TV. Even on a massive 60" TV, it would still be a bit awful. So Sharp has developed an 85" TV to demonstrate some of their UHD filming. Apparently, 20 minutes of UHDTV would take 4TB of storage space. There has also been talk of the TV's to best suit UHD would be between 100"- 200".

An awesome thing for audio for UHD, no longer, will we sit and listen to our 5.1 surround sound and think "I wish I had more speakers". They're developing 22.2 surround sound. That's 22 speakers, and 2 sub-woofers. This is the audio format for UHDTV.

As far as I know, this isn't going to be available for another 5-10 years.

And that's all I know folks! I just wanted to get the hype out. Anybody else got any information on this?

I'm not spending money on HD until those HD lips can give me a blowjob.

Well, if this isn't another way to squeeze money out of gullible idiots, I don't know what is.

Standard definition was fine and dandy for years, but NOOOOOOO, everything had to be sharper and clearer, and by extension, MORE FUCKING EXPENSIVE.

And then we have 3D... If you want to see something in 3D, GO OUTSIDE. THE WORLD IS 3D. Jesus.

Holy shit! It's true. We should give you like a medal or something.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

Assface.

All I'm trying to say is that people managed just fine before everything had to be in 3D. Nowadays, if something's not in 3D, people aren't interested.

not true. just because the media are flaunting it every which way, doesn't mean people are actually buying it. none of my friends actually enjoy 3d, and i don't know anybody actually excited about the mini-era we're entering.

To be honest, I have a habit of generalising (Dunno if you'd noticed TROLOLOL)

But I know how you feel. I don't care for it, none of my friends care for it, and as far as I know, it's a pointless venture. But, ya know...


Just my opinion.

I agree that the public is being taken for a ride a bit. I wouldn't pay as much as they initially were asking for 3D technology at home. Though the 3DS was the same price as the DS on initial release. Nintendo, you make me proud.

I was in a local shop a week or so ago, when I saw some "High Definition Glasses".....

..Any person that buys those should probably be shot. Sieving through the population to make a better evolutionary path.

that just takes the piss, it'll cost twice as much for maybe a fifth or so of a noticable improvement

The only thing HD is useful for is video gaming. Less polygons, more pixels. Other than that, HD is a waste for me.

3D doesn't sound very appealing either. I've never even seen a 3D film before.

We've had an HD ready TV for years now but we're still on an analog connection, don't have consoles of the latest generation and don't have a blue-ray player either.

in that case you are better off with an old fashioned tv xD
