Old news ... boring ... almost obsolete as..

NHK shows UltraHD TV (http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/newse/20030522woad.htm)

with 4000 lines of resolution

This is what I find frustrating about today's technology. Something comes onto the market, then quickly something else comes. Then almost immediately, another item comes out. Then another. And they're not cheap either.

4000 lines of resolution is waaaay out there with respect to economic production at the consumer level....and even further out with respect to political acceptance as a new television standard.

btw...shouldn't this thread be in the HDTV forum?

I thought others may want to read about the new toys as well. There are other new toys besides UHDTV in the article as well.

Heh, might as well stick with NTSC then...
