8K

Scott Wilkinson on Home Theater

Episode 1426

Scott Wilkinson

Scott joins us to talk about a recent article he wrote on AVS Forum about whether 8K is already around the corner. We're going to see them at CES next January, you can bet. Scott says that 8K is a lot closer than we think, but that's only from the perspective of the TV manufacturers who want to sell upgraded TVs. Content is nowhere near around that same 8K corner. Scott says that TV manufacturers can do it so quickly because it won't cost them very much to transition to it in the LED lines.

Scott continues his CES retrospective, but now he's got the 'CES Crud,' which you usually get when you travel to Las Vegas with 100,000 of your closest friends. Scott found it interesting that curved panels are all the rage, especially in Korea and China. Meanwhile, Japan still hangs on to flat screens.

Scott is back to talk home theater and the World Cup! He's heard that in Brazil, they've banned the use of the vuvuzella since it was such a problem last time. Scott has also heard that the World Cup is being recorded in 4K and the final will be broadcast in UHD. But not many will be able to see it in 4K at all. They should at least stream it in 4K, but they're not. They are recording it for a movie down the road. Leo wonders if this is the next step and that in 4 years we'll see it in 4K. The train has left the station. In fact, NHK in Japan is testing 8K right now.
