It will take more than a higher-resolution picture for the average consumer to buy a 4K television, and retailers should not expect volume sales for at least another three years.

I wonder if there is any chance this years Panny VT plasma will have 4k. I have no clue on cost to make a current plasma design 4k.

Seeing as how they like to keep the 65" around $3500, id doubt it for 2013.

IMO, not much chance of seeing any UHD PDP. It's a dying technology.

I dont see it being a push except in projectors right now. Could be a 90" Sharp LCD, but Sharp has to stay in business first.

Cool

I want more resolution like everybody else, but is 4K going to be that much improvement over 1080P? Why dont they just skip to 8K and blow everyone away with advanced picture resolution, not just an evolution...

A lot will depend on screen size and how far away you sit.

Im all for 4K, because even flat panels are getting huge, but it's not worth a huge price difference for me.

Im also watching Directv who is supposed to be planning an Ultra HD push.

The TV manufacturers want a new product to sell NOW. Not 5 to 8 years from now, and that is how long it will take for 8K to get started.

Plus Hollywood isn't working in 8K. They work in 4K (and a small % at that). So there will be no content at all.
