[Rafael Amador] "You are right that we are in the era of information, but we are also in the era of mobility, and a big 4k screen represents the opposite. In the end TVs are old and the only they can do is get bigger and with more things to watch. About picture quality, except professionals, people don't give a damn. Just look at the Bluray market penetration;"


We agree here.

The one area where i think 4k stands any chance is if that resolution turns out to be an optional use for the central device that provides other services in a household media center scenario.

I can see people opting for a central high-rez screen as the main information portal for their homes - I just think it's got to do a whole lot more than just display high-rez movies.

And my last Sony TV purchase confirmed that. It does 50 things that no TV I've ever purchased previously could do via WiFi and Cable access.

If the 4k movie resolution ALSO gets me better internet text display, for example - then I can see the value.

It's kinda like the Apple push toward the retina displays. More rez isn't particularly "necessary" - but there's not much downside to having it if you don't have to pay a whole lot extra for it.
