+1 ; something like the red 4k laser projector at the promised price will stimulate the upmarket projector market . They will have the delivery system covered starting with their red 4k cameras . People in that market realise that led lamp projectors are so far an expensive stopgap I feel Its for that reason that a different aspect ratio doesnt appeal much either ; evolutionary not revolutionary indeed
With a measly 600 pixels extra horizontal resolution, why would anyone bother spending money on such a poor incremental improvement that requires a new display and player? It's only a minority that cares about black bars on their display.
The industry needs to realise that the money is in technology that is revolutionary, value for money and hooks the consumer interest: it can't be replicated with incremental improvements on existing tech.
was such a revolution, but the studios are deluding themselves that they can make the same or more profit with only incremental improvements, and if they continue to frustrate the consumer with their DRM and outdated or botched masters, I predict Bluray will soon experience a decline.
OLED and VOD (if they can provide the bandwidth) will be such a revolution: 3D and 4K, not so much unless they piggyback 3D on OLED HMD and market to the younger generation.
