Default Quad HD doesn't make everything look better

Look, we wouldn't want to be paused for your wicked, Quad HD amusement either. But seeing such a vivid demo on JVC's 4K2K (4,096 x 2,400), super high definition LCD as we strolled through IFA's digital playground reminded us of something: maybe not everything looks better in Quad HD. Think about it before you hustle on over to Japan for Panasonic's 150-inch Quad HD set next year.

All juvenility aside, the image above was created using JVC "soon to arrive" ultra high-definition player attached over dual-link DVI to the 4k2k display. The video uses MPEG-4AVC compression to convert the 6Gbps original 4K source into 50Mbps.

Hell, this will take some time to transcode, uh? :-D

God, I really think this is getting crazy and stupid, instead of thinking 3D, they just crank up the pixel count... Not the smartest way to go, in my humble opinion. Until they don't stop thinking so flat it simply doesn't make any sense to me. I would cheer some kind of a paradigm shift, a radical new step (hell, like a new OS as well...), but doubling (quadrupling) the pixel count... come on, we've seen that before, boring.

Indeed, manufacturers should spend more time into underlying technology rather than just upping the resolution. Things like viewing angle, equal backlight distribution, gamut ...
