This is a slightly earlier report by the BBC, but has more detail than the Click news bite and is essentially covering the same information.

I'm skeptical of 8K on the consumer end. I don't think most people see enough difference between 2K and 4K (Much less for 8K) to shell out the extra thousands of dollars. Or at least not enough to make it a viable market.

And in the other thread about 4K, the article I linked to with Douglass Trumbull stated that in tests Peter Jackson and James Cameron preferred higher frame rates to higher resolutions. This goes back to the issue of motion blur. Higher resolutions without higher frame rates is self defeating as the much of the image is lost in blur.

However 8K very likely has serious high end industrial/medical uses. And it certainly couldn't hurt in the aquisition of media and mocap.

8K seems pretty nuts, but I know I'd definitely prefer to see that go mainstream and replace 3D (as it is now) as the cinematic gimmick of choice. I dread to think about the effect this'll have on VFX shops though - I struggle with deadlines for 1080p rendered projects.

the main idea with 8k is a HUGE screen with VERY hires graphics which is WALL size like 148 inches across...with that retina display res and that size it truly feels like you are looking out of a large window into the real world rather than a TV, coupled with this is a 22:1 surround sound system btw!

another info clip

so huge screen, so big you can have 100 degree viewing angle which is almost same as human eyes...and very high res...retina display resolutions...this then gives the viewer the feel they are looking thru a window more than watching a tv.

And 10-bit support. That's a LOT of data to edit and put on drives. Oof!

I don't think the issue has anything to do with what you can see, it is the details that are available when you zoom or crop. But then again how much better is a printed picture than your TV screen?

The strange thing about this, is I read an article about Qualcomm investing in Sharp, as they are in major financial trouble!
Sharp must be really hoping this tech kicks off.
