Pricing and availability are unknown

Dell has tipped some of the details on a new 24” UHD computer monitor called the UP2414Q.
Dell says that the UP2414Q features the highest pixel density of any of its available displays at 185 ppi. The native resolution of the IPS display is 3840 x 2160 and it offers viewing angles of 178-degrees horizontally and vertically. The contrast ratio is listed as 1000:1 typical and 2M:1 dynamic. Brightness for the panel is 350 cd/m2 and the panel has a 8ms response time.

The display supports 99% Adobe RGB color gamut and 100% sRGB.
Unfortunately, important details like pricing and availability haven’t been announced at this time.

This is for media professionals first and foremost. Shooting in 4K and downsampling to 2K is becoming prevalent, and actually editing and finishing in 4K will gain steam over the next few years. This is a huge reason why you're seeing a Mac Pro that supports three 4K displays, why you're seeing a proliferation of DisplayPort in video cards, etc etc.

This will trickle down to the consumer over time, just like high price IPS monitors did. Until then it will be a high end niche product.

Can your eyes really notice the difference?

It will as screens increase in size. 65" at a normal viewing distance of arond 8" pushes 1080p. 4K becomes useful if you want to go to larger sizes such as 80"+.

Just today I checked out some 4K displays. Cool but impractical at 50", awesome at 80"+.

Blu Ray movies are already 25 - 40 Gb in size. How much bigger would an equivalent 4K res movie be?

Codecs improve over time. MPEG-2 used for DVD in the 90s was incredibly inefficient. I had to encode with it for years and it was a massive PITA. An equally sized h.264 file used for Blu Ray or online can be HD with much better color depth, no macro blocking, fewer compression artifacts, etc etc.

MPEG-2 at h.264 high image quality would give you file sizes that would be too big to even fit on Blu Ray media. The h.264 files I upload to Vimeo now are magnitudes better in every possible way than the same exact same clip I encoded in MPEG-2 for DVD, all while being much smaller files.

Now we're running against the same limitations of h.264 as we go past 1080p, which brings us to h.265.

h.265 is already here. It will give us increased resolution without compromising color depth or file size:

This is a natural progression in codecs. Just as we moved from mp3 to AAC and MPEG-2 to h.264, now we're onto h.265.

Increased computational power + codec efficiency = awesome :)

What 4k displays at 80+ inches are you referring to? What Plasma? ;)

Haha, no plasmas sadly, but oh well, things move on.

Sony's 4K was excellent, Samsung's was trash. No real middle ground in image quality there, but then again the selection is limited. My dealer and I are crossing fingers for giant 4K OLED sets in three years or so, we'll see!
