Plain Ole HD? Pshaw, Get Ready for Ultra HD

That beautiful 1080p picture you're enjoying? Well, you may as well just chuck it in the garbage, because Ultra High Definition is coming. Research firm In-Stat put out a report today saying that while it will take some time before the UHD market hits a critical mass of 5 percent household penetration, over the next five to 10 years, companies in the TV ecosystem will be able to experiment with business strategies to turn UHD into a strong business for the long haul.

UHD offers 16 times the resolution of Blu-ray along with 22.2 multichannel three-dimensional sound. Current proposals for UHD have the technology coming in two flavors: 7680 x 4320 pixels (8k resolution) and 3840 x 2160 pixels (4k resolution).

8K would finally satisfy me I think. Couple that with OLED screens. We would finally have smooth enough, and good enough color range screens to really look like your looking through a window.

now come on most things aren't even in 1080p so this is just to soon when we see everything hd they i will like the idea of uhd not that i don't want it but come on to soon for this no content for the tv i remember buying my 1080p and had no 1080p stuff to watch only bought it for my ps3 coming out later that year. We have to wait for the next big things witch for me is oled now i want that now you don't need content for that so bring that on and i don't want a 20" model i want a 55" one but will have to wait for that to but that is what is next

It's never too soon. The technology has to be set in place before an industry is willing to start moving towards it.

I just picked up 50" Panasonic Full 1080P HD plasma and clarity is so amazing that it made my old 50" Sony LCD 1080i look like a 14" crt. Even regular divx files look as clear as watching LIVE TV. Anyway I guess the UHD might become standard in 2015 or so as 1080P HD can easily satisfy all of the videophiles needs and not to mention the level of equipment requried to have UHD transmissions or devices to output.
