I'm wondering what the herd thinks of the news? I'm not terribly excited for home 4K because I don't see the point. At normal viewing distances you'd need a huge TV for it to matter. However I was wondering if this might mean better HD at lower data rates. If so how low can we go?
I imagine it will be a while before we see hardware decoders in devices so this will be a slow change. It's always good to see progress though.
That was my main point. 4K isn't that interesting of a feature. What I find interesting is that it boasts increased efficiency in encoding HD content. It makes me wonder how much we'll be able to lower the bit-rate of HD video and still have acceptable quality.
