If you think 4K with HDR delivers the best picture you could ever desire, then take a look at NASA's 8K footage from the International Space Station.
Space buffs could stand right up to an 8K display and discern every little gizmo in the space craft. And the rest of us can ogle at the rich images of Earth from 239,000 miles away.
True, few viewers will be able to appreciate the NASA video on anything approaching an 8K display, but the clarity and detail is remarkable, even on a 4K TV or monitor.
Maybe we won't need or desire 8K displays for action flicks and rom coms, but documentaries and cinematographic wonders could seal the deal.
As Jonathan Brawn of Brawn Consulting says, we were all happy enough with our images before 4K disrupted everything, “and we don’t see anyone debating why 4K was a good upgrade from 1080p, do we?”
