You need a 25 foot tv for this to be effective.

Where do i buy one?

JsonHenry3025d ago

given the resolution wouldn't this imply this was for spanning multi-display setups?

Conloles3025d ago

You guys need to think outside of the (console) box, PC's baby!

FangBlade3025d ago (Edited 3025d ago )

You told me you only have a laptop what PC are you talking about?
Your laptop can't even handle MapleStory.

I'd rather have them increase the limit from 10 minutes to 15 minutes.

jay23025d ago

I don't know how it's done, but I've seen videos from Youtube of 25-30 mins such as

So it IS doable somehow.

seinfan3025d ago

You have to have a director's account from 2006 or earlier to post long videos, I think. Longest video I've seen (well, not seen, just aware of how long it is) is over 4 hrs long.

I think having a partnership with Youtube lets you break the 10 minute limit.

nickjkl3025d ago

that sounds like its gonna cost alot

ProjectVulcan3025d ago (Edited 3025d ago )

Its not just that, bitrate is more important. Youtube's 1080p looks decent but still clearly has macroblocking and the performance is pretty poor. Not even close to a Bluray naturally. Its ok saying you support a resolution like that but when you dont support a good encoder with high bitrates it'll look pants

fr0sty3025d ago

exactly, they barely give a good enough bitrate to support halfway decent 1080p, they damn sure aren't going to have the bitrate to support 8 times that many pixels without it looking like crap.

GrilledCheeseBook3025d ago (Edited 3025d ago )

you also have to take into account how close you are to the tv/monitor
but still I downloaded a sample 4k video before and it was a slideshow on my computer but those videos had incredibly high bitrates while youtube will probably have some shitty standard

edit: youtube 4k videos run fine on my computer. must be their constant use of shitty low bitrates but it looks better than the 1080p videos but still a little blurry

lzim3025d ago

visit google, then NHK/BBC's work on Super Hivision, which is much more detailed than simple 4K, they have mentioned consumer versions of SHV for the home with really tiny dot pitch, meaning the quality would be ridiculous, but the screen doesn't have to be bigger than current 100" monsters.


there's no reason for 4K on small screens, but there's no need to blow your budget on some massive screen when 60-100 inch is plenty.

yea, whats the point? wasnt there an article on n4g where it was stating that most ppls eyes cant tell the difference between 720p and 1080p cause the average monitor isnt big enough to make the difference significant?

EDIT: i mean i might be wrong on that, but i could have sworn thats what i read/heard

Nitrowolf23025d ago

yeah i remeber readign something like that a while ago

jjesso19933025d ago

well on my new syncmaster 24'' i can sure tell diffrence when watching 720p blu rays or 1080p ones. sounds like bs article you read becuase i dont know any one that cant tell diffrence between 1080p or 720p unless there standing to far from monitor/tv

thehitman3025d ago

People who are not use to HD cant tell the difference since they see both and they probably go wow this looks good at both but anyone like myself who uses HD as a norm can EASILY tell the difference between 720p/1080i/1080p on any monitor whether its 17in or 50++.

PopEmUp3025d ago

do you stare at the monitor to know it HD or not, or Do you just see it say 720p/1080p to know?

ar3025d ago (Edited 3025d ago )

Don't know anything about the article but it comes down to the ratio between the screen size AND the viewing distance.

jjohan353025d ago

It's easy to see for yourself. Take your computer screen and change the resolution between 1280x720 and 1920x1080.

RedDragan3025d ago

Not really the same thing. As computers also downsize objects on the screen. Don't get me wrong, there is a noticable difference despite what some "I want to make a name for myself" journalist says, but Windows, Linux, MAC screen size options are not really the best ways to compare the fidelity of resultions because those object size changes distort the impression you get.

Just playing Blu-Ray will do the job nicely, characters on the screen remain the same size but ask somebody to sit 2 foot in front of the 40" inch screen and ask them again if there really is nho difference.


Also, and completely off topic.... SAVE PAUL! BAN FISHING! SAVE PAUL! ROFL!

jjohan353024d ago

I should have included, look at a very large photo (at least 1920x1080 size) 100% at both resolutions. Obviously looking at your web browser or desktop won't make much of a difference.

It's the fact that you can cram more detail/pixels into any given surface area that makes the image more crisp with detail.

It's a nice addition to their services, but really how many people will use it?

Chris_TC3025d ago

A handful of RED users who don't mind that the insanely low Youtube bit rate slaughters their videos.

4K is a niche format, pretty useless for something like Youtube.
