4K Brings Even Higher Resolution To TV looks at the future of TV, with quotes from Mark Schubin. Here’s the intro:

During the London Olympics this summer, some viewers around the world will get a glimpse of television’s next vision. Ultra high-definition TV (UHDTV) — also known as 4K and Super Hi-Vision — telecasts of selected Olympic events will be shown at public venues globally, starting in late July. Britain’s BBC will display 4K coverage on 15-meter display screens around London, and NHK plans to show some games on similar big screens. A 4K feed is also scheduled to be on display in Washington, D.C., although details have not been disclosed.
