there is a high end sony 4K projection system in the $10,000 range which is at the top of most projection TV ranking reviews.

  1. The biggest issue isn’t technology, it’s content. Mediocrity remains mediocre no matter how large & sharp the screen.

  2. IMO, no living room or theater experience will benefit above 4k…I get that you need to film in higher resolution to do editing and mastering etc…but 8k only has benefits when its basically strapped to your head a-la VR setups..which are probably years away the way the current players are releasing.
    The chart above originally had an x axis for screen size…but I digress..
    I think things like gamut, HDR and static contrast and persistence will likely be the dominant performance features for the media saavy after 4k becomes basically the de-facto standard. 8k in the living room…unless you live in a movie theater will likely be more of a status buy than one that truly enhances the experience.

    Projection is interesting in that lasers are making their way onto the scene which can be very bright and very fast so projection is likely to grow by leaps and bounds just for that.

    • Agree, exception is large computer monitors, the one there one oversize screen replace 2-3 standard ones.
      However here you sit 30-50 cm from screen and it cover field of view.

  3. Can someone in the their mid-40s, the typical age where vision begins to fail, even discern the difference between a 4K and an older 1040 unit? Thinking of high end audio gear, where my recently tested cut off is now about 14 KHz or so, it’s kind of pointless if I can’t hear it, to’purchase high end gear.

    • I just had to replace my 1080i front projector with a 4K unit, one of the cheapest on the market. The answer is yes you can see the difference and it was worth it. The biggest issue is that most of the source material isn’t up to the quality even with upscalng.

    • I depends on the distance to the screen… for any age. By the way, when eyes begin to age in the 40s they lose elasticity of the lens which shouldn’t be an issue for you. You should note that HDR included with many 4K TVs improves both the contrast and color.
