4K resolution is higher than retina. :)

Actually I believe retina is a function of not just resolution but how far you sit from the display so if you sit close enough, it may not be.

Ah, my bad. In my haste, I forgot that retina display is just a marketing term rather than a specific resolution. But 4K is still higher than what's available for retina at the moment.  ;D

As screen sizes goes higher, I think 4K is plenty of detail for home cinema. 8K would probably be best suited for the commercial cinema screens. I doubt most home owners would be able to discern anything higher than 4K. Even with the retina display on the 15" MBP, it takes a moment to notice the difference from a regular screen. And that's for a static display! With moving images, it's even harder to tell the difference. Extreme high-res would probably be fantastic for digital art galleries I suppose. Can you guys remember when plasma display panels were first launched and they were used to demo virtual fish tanks? Many people thought that the fish were real and those panels were not even in 1080p yet. And no doubt 4K movies would require a substantially higher storage capacity than blu-ray that needs to be commercially viable.

Absence of mind can sometimes be miscontrued as ignorance.  :P

I believe the term retina is referring more to the ppi (pixel per inch) rather than the absolute resolution. So obviously the bigger the screen, the higher the resolution it needs to be....

Anyway that was meant to be a tongue in cheek comment. "Retina" is definitely just a marketing term, but its a rather successful marketing term I must admit. With more 4k display appearing in the market, and 8k in the future, who dares to bet against even higher definition TVs in the future?  ;D

Actually for retina displays, the ppi is not absolute also. It seems that smaller devices such as the iPhone have higher ppi(326) than devices with bigger screens. The 15" MBP has a lower ppi(220) than the 3rd gen iPad(264). Viewsonic will be launching a 31.5" 4K monitor (http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/05/viewsonic-vp3280-led-4k-monitor-hands-on) in the near future which has a ppi of 150. I think you can consider this equivalent to retina if you scale the size of the monitor's screen accordingly.

That's why I am excited about the upcoming HMZ-T2, poor man's OLED TV. :)
