What do you think TVs, screens and computer monitors will be like 10 years from now? I think that we'll be seeing much, much higher resolutions, and also screens between a 2:1 and 3:1 ratio will not be a rarity. What about you?

Why did you say ratio of 2:1 and 3:1? That's very old if you ask me. That would be 3 different brightnesses? I want ratio's up to 10000:1 on computer screens and 40000:1 on TV's.

I think he was referring to the aspect ratio.

On that topic, why would they change the aspect ratio to 2:1, since 16:9 is fairly similar to that, and is supposed to be "fitted" to our line of vision. Please elaborate.

Yeah, I was referring to the screen resolution. Well, for example if you go in to a cinema, you have a view much wider than 16:9, right? And they're supposed to be really, umm, good? Also, with the PS3 supporting dual 720p support, I just think that we could be heading in the direction of TVs with a wider aspect ratio than 16:9. Maybe not for many years, but I do see it coming. I also think that it will become commonplace for computer monitors to have a 3:4 or 9:16 aspect ratio - yes, a portrait mode. It would be excellent for viewing web pages and such. Actually, quite a few of the more expensive computer monitors can already do this.

The cinema uses 2.35 which is pretty much 4/3 side by side, in otherwords if you dual screen then you'll be automatically getting a 2.35 aspect ratio (that's 2.35/1), 16/9 is all well and good but if you watch a lot of TV programs and films on a widescreen TV you'll still always notice some black borders top and bottom.

well DLP are recently released and are far much more better than lcd hdtv i heard

the black lines between the pixels are far more "slimmer" which makes it better quality, and the television is mirror based is that what lcd is? because i know lcd owns tft. my pont: instead of higher and higher resolution there will be other improvements as seen on DLP televisions, what do you think?

That's a good point. There were two TVs in a shop I went into the other day - a 52" plasma and a 54" DLP TV. They were both running the same video at the same time, both at 720p resolution. I can say that although the plasma TV was over £1000 more, the DLP one made it look like crap. I put my head right next to the DLP, and could literally not see the pixel lines. Superb.

I want tvs to have 500,000:1 contrast ratio with 3080p resolutions that can push 500 billion pixels and colors with a 2 ms response time. It would come in all sizes at a cheap price that it would be sold out everywhere and everybody would have the TV. It would run at 120 fps or 60 fps and upscale anything up to the 3080p resolution. It would have a sleek silver look and be insanely thin with every single output and input connections. Its built in speakers would be so powerful, more so then surround sound. All channels whether you have cable or satellite would be upscaled and refined in a 3080p resolution. It would have deep black levels and have PIP. Oh and it would retail from 500-1000$ dollars. Most advanced technology at a cheap price. Sounds crazy but thats just my imagination.

There would be no sense in that.
The human eye is estimated to be viewing at a 16:9 ratio anyways.
Just a higher resolution would do the trick.

You do realise that SED TVs already have a faster response time. :p

The thing is..to even try and remotely trick yourself to thinking you're looking outside, is to design everythign around your TV.

The TV itself would have to look like a window.

  • - So I mean, flat panel...very flat.
    - The TV must have window trim around it.
    - The TV must be placed in an area that looks like it would have a window.

It's also got to be and insane resolution and have a rediculous refresh rate.

Well you can already buy TVs which use glass panes...though I suppose they're projected onto but they're still there. :p

It basically means that there is a possible 3000 different levels of light, most LCDs have a contrast ratio between 400 and 800 to 1, basically between the light and dark values there are 400 to 800 levels, so the higher this number the better, Plasma's are about 600 to 1500 but CRTs are generally 8000:1 which is why people still buy CRTs simply because you can clearly see the clarity of pictures and the range of colours better.

100000:1 like the SED though is going to have a greater range of colours, so no more aturated bright collours, it'll be however you wanted to be adjusted, and the pictures will look a lot more vivid. :)

^ Yep, SEDs provide a minimum of 80,000-100,000:1 contrast ratio. I'm sure in 2-3 years from now, there will be 200,000-300,000:1 contrast ratio. Man, SED televisions will be expensive at first then reduce down to LCD/Plasma prices.
