Future of HDTV

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was gonna buy a nice LG 47" 3D Tv and i realized, as an investment, this would have to last me quite a while. 1080p has been around for a while, and I dont think is going to die too soon, i mean, even current consoles are upscaled 720p.

however, with the coming advancements: 3D without need for glasses, new generations of consoles which will probably push past the 1080p mark possibly 1440p, and also with intel pushing for higher resolution displays by next year, maybe I should hold off and wait for 1440p to become the new standard in HD for tvs?

or do you think 1080p will remain the HD standard, its much easier to say too, ten eighty as opposed to fourteen forty

having to put on glasses for 3d while other tv's have glasses free 3d i can live with, but it would suck being stuck with a 1080 res tv while in a year or 2, 1440 will become new standard, kinda like how 720p tvs are looked down upon frown.gif

any thoughts?

this is more of a speculation thread on the future of hdtvs more than anything, no need to post if you are offended (you know who you are) tongue.gif

The next gen of consoles will almost certainly not move past 1080p. It's a safe bet for a few years to come and it sounds like a good investment.

Next TV's are the 4K ones.

Many were shown this year at different events, I believe the Samsung OLED 4K TV is meant to release this year...

Samsung at CES

Yes, but they are mostly pointless for consumers since there is virtually no 4K media today or in the near future.


Also, a 47" HDTV with increased resolution will not benefit him unless he is sitting less than 8ft away.

The "4k" technology they are touting is not 4k, it's "Quad HD," or 2160p. 4k is a cinema format. This is just like the jerk-off mobile phone companies using the term "4g" when we are in reality a decade or more away from what 4g standards originally envisioned. That chart is retarded.
