Hmm time flies I remember watching the winter olympics like it was yesterday. And the summer olympics hoping that Phelps would bring home another gold. We're already talking bout 2012 olympics now, speaking of which I think I need a new calender mine still says November...2009.

higher than 1080p wont be hitting home market for 10 ish years (aside from computers) just wondering, if you are to view the tv this will be brodcasted on, would it realistically be any better than 1080p? because im guessing you will be 30-40 feet away at best.

how about getting webcast easy FIRST then worry about super duper HD broadcasting?

not EVERYONE will be glued on front of a TV...it would be awesome to watch the games while at work, coffee shops, or even local library's wifi?

It sounds like a beta test. I rather super high def TV then 3D. It like looking threw a window when you see 8k definition. You can be up close and not think it is a TV. Video games would be amazing. I want the resolution to pass my PC monitor so I have the same resolution in my living room and play my pc games with amazing graphics, and just grin with joy.

How about we eliminate 3/4 of the 1000 TV channels on a typical provider so there's enough bandwidth for them all to broadcast HD exclusively? I'm so tired of HD being a "premium service" when it's just the new standard, like colour vs black and white. Even "HD" channels in Canada still broadcast lots of SD material, it's maddening.

The Olympics are really the perfect broadcast to show off HD. I was so impressed by the quality of the broadcasting in 2010. Hopefully it helps further adoption.

Public screening tend to be on mahoosive screen anyway, so it will be the same as watching 4K cinema

Ultra High Definition huh? So first pony up the $1k to $5k for the LASIK procedure, then invest in the hardware... hehe... Maybe this tech will make LASIK more popular and more affordable. It's worth every penny. I was blind as a bat before having custom Lasik, and rose up off the table with 20/15 in less than 3 minutes procedure.

33megapixel? what resolution is that compared to 1080p? Like around 7680x4320 resolution?

So I would just need to get 4 30" 1080p monitors to make up my 60" tv, at 7680x4320 then just use a computer with some nice video cards to watch the Olympus.
22.2 surround sound, crap I don't think I could even fit 24 speakers in my tv room. :)

22.2 channels is also a bit imbalanced for the surround channels. If you've got that many side/high channels I'd think it would be ideally 22.4 channels (a sub on each "wall" of the listening area).

You would need sixteen 1080p displays in a 4x4 array to equal the resolution of Super Hi-Vision.

if you could guarenttee better than 20/20, and no loss of how good you can see at night, and little to no degradation over time, i would so get that. but the fact they still don't guarente, and they still make you sign the right to sue if they royally screw up, that makes me hesitant.

They are already shipping consumer 4k TVs and projectors. Also, Sharp will be shipping a 8K/4k unit next year.

4k video has been out for a while. There is no infrastructure to handle it today for the masses. Go to YouTube and search "4k" . They look amazing... But you can't see the true quality on a 1920x1200 screen.

But 4k means pixels across. So 4096x2304. Which is still 4x that of 1920x1080.

Internet can't handle that. A 200gb disc would be needed per movie. Or flash card anyway by then.

I can see it now. The year is 2019 and THG is reviewing the latest batch of smart phones with a SHV screen, 4TB ram and the new Intel Sedenion mobile processor (16 cores).

The phone will initially be offered at $299 by the new T-Verisprint (from the controversial 2018 merger of T-Mobil, Verizon and Sprint) with a 1PB (petabyte) restricted dataplan at $64.99/month

There will be the usual uproar in the comment section as the phone is clearly overpriced using only a 16-core processor and 4TB memory.
This is because 1TB is used for Windows 14 (they skipped Version 13), another 1.5TB is used by standard apps and 0.5TB is used for the integrated graphics memory leaving only 1TB as work and storage memory.
Seeing that the phone comes with a 32MP camera (48bit mode) using 200MB for uncompressed images one can see that the available memory is indeed barely sufficient to do a days worth of taking pictures. Trying to use the integrated SHV video cam is virtually impossible unless one buys the 16TB ram expansion ($99) or switches to the inferior 4K mode.

The phone is receiving generally negative reviews and been widely seen as yet another example of corporate greed and management's inability to listen to what consumers really want.

Oh well, maybe in the next decade we finally get a decent phone at an acceptable price.
