Is it 4Ki or 4Kp? ;)
I'll be very interested in seeing how it's priced and how well it up-converts 1080i/p.
I'm guessing at that size the first units will be over $10k. The 80" Sharp is $5-6k and the 90" is $9k for 1080p.
The 36-inch 4K panels now on sale in Japan go for approx. $36,500.
Bwahaha, I was technically right, but way off.
Yep. I was backing your point, man. ;)
From Sony site:
I thought I saw elsewhere that the target is 10K. Seems like it would kill the Sharp (Sony would be 6" smaller but higher res for the same price)
If they sell it for 10K it would be at a loss. Of course Sony has done things like that before...
I predict that 4K will be a non-starter in the home. 1080p is good enough at that screen size.
And anything over 4M pixel cameras are a waste.... Didn't you read that the new Taylor Swift music video being released this week is shot in 4K?!?! The content flood gates are starting to open and you don't want to get caught out. :)
Seriously though, in large screens I can see the application for 4K and later 8K. Technology does march on if nothing more than to make money.
I don't know -- I currently have a 60". We built out our fireplace for a max of 65" -- I would jump at a quality 65", 4K screen. I could use it as a useful computer monitor too. Of course, price is an issue. I also like the idea of possibly being able to show 4 complete HD signals, in quadrants. The Sony 4K DC Projector can do that -- tile 4 separate inputs. I can think of a few things I could use that for.
Geezus, the fantasy football freak would go bonkers over a feature like that! On an 80+ inch screen you could probably even be able to get 8 tiles.
According to Home Theater Equipment, LG has their version available for pre-order at $22,500. Still a lower price than I expected.
I'm still shocked that 1080P at under 60" became as accepted as it was- almost overnight. Now we have this 2160P thing that really won't be noticeable at under 72".......maybe it will create some temporary margins for a suffering video market? Seeing the demo at the Cedia Expo this year- I will say that it looks impressive with 2160P content- ? is- how will a similar demo be staged anywhere that can sell volume?
I'm not a hater- just asking the seemingly obvious questions.
Just so you know it looks like the Sony will be a couple hundred more then the LG, and I have been reading that both look great, however when you think about what can be done in the way of a Projector, Screen and even a 70" 1080P set together the whole 20K plus things look stupid. I mean really you could have a retractable 110" screen with a great PJ that does 3D as well has a more mundane 70" LED set for when you did not want to use the Projector and you could still buy a decent Receiver with dual HDMI 1.4 outs. :)
I knew that within a year of purchasing my Panny new technology would pop up. Luckily it's too expensive to even consider. I would like to see how good they are though...or maybe not.
So the Sony is 84" and MSRP is $24,999
Now LG is releasing theirs at $20k.. same size 84"..
I wonder if it's the same panel?
Here's the Sony
So Sony has announced they are delivering a 4k content solution with this tv. http://blog.sony.com/sony-4k-content
This is very interesting. No info on pricing.
Remember the "screen door effect?" :lol:
