Re: Wow
4K optical discs exist as UHD Blu-ray -- but I'm not sure if the roadmap for Blu-ray extends to 8K, but I assume it will. However, Blu-ray discs once supported 3D video, but that support has since ended because the adoption of 3D TVs was so dismal.

Re: When does it stop?
VR sounds like the next 3D TV to me.. A lot of hype, but not much adoption. Maybe that will change? And if it does, then I assume it will overtake 4k or 8k or whatever resolution arms race is going on -- because when the screens can be measured in millimeters from your eyeballs, the resolution limits probably become irrelevant more quickly.

When does it stop?
You would think that with the rise of VR we will eventually stop watching TV and start experiencing it. When do we stop putting money into improving TV technology and start improving VR and making HoloRooms?

Re: What is the limit?
I already can't tell the difference between HD and 4K so I'm already there. How long until the pictures of nature documentaries are more realistic on screen than they are in real life?

Re: Wow
Are the new UltraHD discs only 4K? I'm behind the curve too. How long before we need to include smell-o-vision into our viewing experience?

What is the limit?
Maybe 8k will be mainstream in a few years, but when does it end? At some point, I assume the limits of human perception kick in and no one will care about 32K video vs 64K video... right?

Is there any physical media to deliver 8K content yet? I haven't heard of blu-Ray discs that can handle 8K... am I that far behind the curve? How many households will even have access to broadband speeds fast enough to offer 8k video streaming?

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
