Not willing to make predictions about the future of HDTV with all the other analysts, In-Stat
has jumped ahead with its latest report, a peek at the future of Ultra High Definition (though the kids are calling it Super Hi-Vision
these days.) We'd heard the 8K / 4K broadcasts could flip on as early as 2015
, but this report pegs 2017 - 2022 as a more likely time period, with the expectation that 28.2% of European households will be sporting the 22.2-channel audio spec by 2025. Of course, if you must be first on the block with it, there's always JVC's $175k DLA-RS4000
available right now.
