An interesting angle on all the 4k TV stuff.

 

If only I could watch SD without compression artifacts on water, flames and every explosion.

This has been my argument for forever - if you're going to use more bandwidth (or implement more efficient codecs that provide better quality for the bandwidth you already have - put it into higher bit-depths, greater DR and fewer compression artefacts. NOT into resolution increases that are near invisible for most average viewing conditions.

 

The best things about UHD (to my mind at least) is Rec.2020, not the actual resolution increase.
