So 4K Bluray disks will become available in 2-3 months time, but what exactly is it going to be played on?
I haven't seen any PC 4k drives. PS4 nor Xbox one support it.
>The new format will support a resolution of 3840 x 2160, as well as high dynamic range (HDR), higher frame rates (up to 60 frames per second) and object-based immersive sound, such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
>Video will be encoded under the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard, and use 10-bit colour depth and the Rec. 2020 colour space.
Why is this horizontal difference of 256 pixels a thing?
what will the next 1080p be? a 1080p monitor/tv bought in ~2007 can still be used today, but it seems like 1440p monitors are deprecated. I wanna get a 4k monitor within the next 2 years, but I don't wanna get memed and end up with outdated tech a year later
Lets say I download a 4K Blu-Ray RIP. Probally going to be around 60-100 GB. Can I stream it through DLNA to my 4K Smart TV
Normal 1080p film is about 30GB, which is about 40 minutes of downloading.
2160p encoded with HEVC will be max 60GB, so 1h 20min of downloading.
Seriously, how impatient can you be?
will they downgrade gracefully on my 1080 player until i can get a 4K tv?
i'd be pretty upset if i'm going to have to re-buy new releases when i eventually upgrade my hardware
how much of the spec has changed?
would a PS4 in theory support these?
finally I can see EVERY. SINGLE. PORE. on matt damons face
I'm gunna wait 2-3 years for 4k to get mainstream and cheap.

Does it support all those at the same time?
there's joybell on kickass torrents who makes HEVC rips about that size (better quality too), even releasing 4k stuff too. plus another few HEVC uploaders as well, YIFYs death was a necissary loss.
with 8k we will finally be able to see between the molecules of Matt Damon's face
I own The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) in 4K and it looks great, but there isn't a significant gain over 1080p.
The best thing about blu-ray is still lossless audio, though. I'm saving up for a new receiver with Dolby Atmos processing.
VR headsets will have the best colors (due to OLED) and huge size
But TVs will always have the higher resolution and huge price
I'm already planning to get rid of all my monitors once 2k HMDs are out
>Why is this horizontal difference of 256 pixels a thing?
Movie industry snobs.
UHD is for consumer plebs.
4K is for the professional artist who only accept the very best in image quality.
>TVs will always have the higher resolution
At a certain point you really can't tell the difference.
What Apple calls "retina".
Surely we will have "retina" VR sets before we have 8K TV's?
That 4K WEB-DL is pointless and not worth existing. That there is no point to the image you posted. I could grab a 195 GB "4K" rip of Daredevil right now but it'll just be memeshit.
How do they even "scan" film?
Don't they use drum scanners, like photographers use to digitize 35mm film?
"4K" implies they are filming a fucking projection with a fucking digicam.
Because that's the final product, plus there's a limit to how much detail you can get out of different film stock.
the eva blurays just came out, which was made on 16mm, and there was debate among /a+m/ encoderfags over even releasing the series in 1080, since MadVR and MPV do such a good job with upscaling.
Seriously, its only in 1080 because of one really detailed map with topography and even then there wasn't that much of a difference.
2D4U from RX872 I think was his name doing 10bit, and then there's sephirotic whose more of a fan but wanted 8bit, both are good, Seph has more grain.
Anno made them color correct based off the DVD, so its not a very good remaster, but those guys have been doing extensive color correction to make it up to par
The resolution of HMDs is directly related to the resolution of cellphone displays.
4K cellphones are just on the horizon.
If you think that 4K HMDs are 2-3 years away, then I have bad news for you, Nostradamus.
8K Blu-Gay no way. This is the exact reason why I have no Blu-Ray players in my home. Those MPAA motherfuckers are purposely trying to stimulate the market because every movie that hits the theater today is DOGSHIT.
The movie industry uses its own standards.
There is DCI 4K which is 4096x2160
and what everyone else calls 4K 3840x2160
> The technology quadruples the number of pixels from 1,920x1,080 pixels with today's HD to 3,820x2,160 pixels with UHD.
I wonder if an update will be enough to make ps4/xbone work with the new discs ?
i'm going out on a limb here and saying that because the new 4K discs will use HEVC , the current line up of players can't decode it/don't have the power for it and thus a new player is required.
If that is the case than a simple update on the consoles should be able to fix it.
>will they downgrade gracefully on my 1080 player until i can get a 4K tv?
Downscaled 4K > Native 1080p though, and the better colors are going to do wonders for banding, practically eliminated now.
>banding, practically eliminated now.
bruh.. banding comes from compression not from not enough colors.
People already can't distinguish between the 16 million colors, 10bit ain't gonna help with that.
there is a difference between outputting video in 4K and being able to playback these new blurays that will be using HEVC.
