Are you ready for anime upscaled to 2160p instead of 1080p?
4K Blu-ray is officially on the way. According to Victor Matsuda, Chairman of the Blu-ray Disc Association Global Promotions Committee, the BDA expects the specs for 4K Blu-ray to be finalized in the first half of 2015, paving the way for commercial availability by the end of the year. This means we can expect to see actual 4K Blu-ray movies and players available in stores by Christmas next year.
Apart from the jump to 4K resolution (3840 × 2160p) we can also expect 4K Blu-ray to support higher frame rates (up to 60fps), an expanded color gamut along with high dynamic range (HDR), as well as HEVC/H.265 encoding to compress 4K movies more efficiently and allow for higher bit rates. The group is currently exploring the possibility of increasing the disc capacity to 66GB or 100GB.
The news was confirmed by representatives on the show floor at IFA 2014 in Berlin, which opened its doors to visitors today.
Anime in 4K? Man just imagine how great it'll look!
Cel based anime and movies on film can be rescanned in at resolutions way higher than current standards depending on the condition of the masters are and how good the restoration job is.
>not reading about the highlights of it on wikipedia so you can discuss it on /a/
I don't even have a television or anything and my laptop screen is 4:3
Only plebs waste their time actually watching anime, instead of reading anime
At some point you'll just get more grain, not more details.
You can already see faults in the lineart of lodoss for example
Do you know what should be a thing?
Compilation of all the "on the next episode..." segments into a single video.
That way we can know all important stuff about an anime series in a few minutes.

Yay now i can wach my anime being upscaled even more. There's no point in that really since most drawn keyframes are scaned at 144dpi so its pretty low quality anyways
>not jumping into discussions on /a/ without any knowledge of the show
I haven't seen a single episode of any anime. Only plebs waste their time becoming familiar with the stories in any way, instead of just blindly guessing what each show is about and still coming on here and putting your uninformed opinions on full blast
