Default 1440p? Higher resolutions than 1080p?

Are resolutions higher than 1080p possible? I've always had this thought in the back of my mind about it. On the chart i just looked at it had 1440p, although i don't know of anything that can produce that? So in a year or so is my new investment going to be outdated with something crazy like 2080p?

While it is possible for the manufacturers to come out with HDTVs that have better resolution than 1080p, I would say it is unlikely for HDTVs except for projectors. They make projectors with 2k and higher resolutions now for digital cenimas.

I say unlikely because broadcast HD and Blu-ray both are 1920x1080 maximum resolution. That is very unlikely to change in the near future. Also it would be difficult to see any difference in PQ between a 1080p and a 2k HDTV in sizes up to 80".

What chart was it?

Agree Richard!

If someone comes out with a 1440p display, it will be either in the FP area where it could possibly be noticeable, or will be an ubber expensive display that none of us can afford, and will not have any native resolution source material to watch so it would only upscale the 1080p anyway.

Although i would not put it past mfg to start getting higher margins again and to get some people to upgrade, but I look at HDTVs now like computers in the 90s. They always got cheaper, faster & better but sooner or later people have to jump in or they will be waiting for decades to get one.

Would 1440p be 2560x1440 or 2732x1536? Todays 720p is really 1366x768 rather than 1280x720 which I find strange. Call it 768p really. There exists 2160p at 3840x2160 but those will still set you back a cool $40,000 for a 56 incher, down $10k from last year. I say get a good 1080p for now, they are getting cheap

Wait for 2020 or 2030 (this year every vehicle will be fuel cell they hope) As for HDTV just have to wait and see if 1440p shows up. Like pulling a rabbit out of the hat.

Most likely the next jump will be Super (or Ultra) HD. That would basically be like having 4x the pixels. Think of it like being able to watch four BDs on one screen at their normal 1080P resolution.

It sounds like CMO is working on an UHD TV (3,840 x 2,160) but had plans on releasing a 1440p (2,560 x 1,440) TV last year. My guess is it's strickly a Japan market item.

Although I don't see 1440p being a format we'll see used like 1080i or p a PC connected up to that monitor would easily be able to use that native resolution and it would most likely be noticeable .

720p is 1280x720 even today. That is the ATSC specification and that's what the broadcast spec is. The 1366x768 is what some manufacturers call their 720p sets because 720p is the closest ATSC resolution to their set's resolution. If you check the 1024x768 plasmas are also called 720p sets. The 720p spec is not set by the manufactures it is set by the ATSC.

There will be two HD brodcast resolutions for some time, 1280x720 and 1920x1080, no matter what screwy HDTVs they make.
