1080i, then 1080p, now 3D HD
English

    Why does technology move so quick, i really don't know what to do, i bought a plasma in 2006 that can only display 1080i pictures which don't get me wrong it looks mental, but after buying it, only months later full HD 1080p was on the scene. Now i am looking into a full HD 1080p plasma to go with my blu-ray player, but holding on because HD 3D tv's seem to be going to hit the shops soon, also my blu-ray player that i have just bought won't be able to play HD 3D discs, so that seems a waste of money at the moment. When will TV technology come to a hult, you know we had black and white, then colour, aleast it stayed with the CRT for 20 years, before flat screens came about,

4K2K is basically a screen that has 4000 x 2000 line's (roughly) for its resolution as against a screen that has 1920 x 1080 which is what we are on at the moment.


Technology is changing every day, i dont think there will ever be a halt to the tv world.

Super Hi-Def, offering a picture resolution of 4096x2160 pixels, or about four times that of current HD TVs.

And to be strictly accurate, 4K2K is only the next step, with at least one dem of 4K2K 3D having already been given(by JVC); there's already talk of 8K true Super Hi-Vision, which is 8192x4320 pixels...

At least get one of those fabulous Panasonic S-VHS decks with the fold down control panels that looked like the deck of the Battlestar Galactica!! Smile

I wonder what happened to my betamax recorder.  It was the size of a small country, needed two men to lift it, top loader, whole house used to shake when you shut it. Recorded both sides of the tape didn't they?  from memory!

Nothing wrong with that beauty! Cracking picture on it! Better than any VHS player.....


Plus it really was built like a tank. They must have been about 15kg.

I had this one  in my bedroom in 1986. Panasonic NV-8600.






I worked at an archive of TV advertising and my boss said I could 'borrow it'.  Can't believe I lugged it home on 2 buses.
