why is 4K still not the standard?
>>
requires too much bandwidth
>>
>>88035571
why the fuck is it live sports still aren't streamable in 4k? cable i understand but with shit like ESPN+ why is it so hard to watch 4K content regularly.
>>
standard for what?
if you mean monitors, yeah it's been slow. i started with 2048x1152 in 2008 and 2560x1440 in 2012, i've yet to upgrade to a good 4k monitor

are you even living?

bonus points if it's an AM station, too.

it is though

I needed a good monitor anyway, but I wouldn't upgrade just to get to 4k.

Steam deck can't even run 30fps on 8 year old tittles and niggas want 4k

Too much bandwidth/expense for live-streaming.

it's already the production standard.

>>88036077
name one title from 2014 that cant run at 800p 60 FPS on a steam deck

>>88035721
Fuck 4k I want high frame rate boxing.

>>88035721
Yeah, this year I had to pay for Formula 1 because it's no longer broadcasted on TV for free.

So I though, well this sucks but at least it will be 4K.
Nope.mpeg - only 1080p.

I can understand low budget sports not having 4K yet but come on, a multi-billion dollar sport can't even encode a stream in 4K?
>>
>>88035571
Let's see what all we can possibly look at on a monitor:
>live TV
Requires too much bandwidth. Livestreamed 4k looks like absolute garbage compared to 1080p/i at the same bitrate.
>movies
New movies are usually made available in 4k but old movies aren't due to physical limitations. Many "4k" blurays aren't even close to the max resolution because they simply can't clean up the film scan enough for it.
>vidya
hardware just isn't fast enough for it. also it seems like the future's more focused on high framerate rather than high res anyways
>general computing
If you're one of those fuckers that complain about how they literally can't use a computer for fucking text editing unless they have a 4k monitor with just the right kind of high DPI scaling then kill yourself asap

YouTube streams 4K just fine.
So it's just the encoding side.
If you can encode 1080p for live streams you can scale it up 300% to 4K, again talking multi-billion dollar corporations not some Twitch whore.

If you think YouTube video quality looks good at any resolution you might wanna get checked for eye cancer

Looks a whole lot better than f1tv.formula1.com

the last 10 years everyone was groomed to believe 1080p is enough even though its trash

and people were actually and still are to this day groomed and brainwashed into thinking that their GPU isn't good enough for 4k even though most of the time they aren't even playing vidya anyway. More resolution is incredible for web browsing,
>>
>>88035571
It's a meme with minimum difference but crazy high requeriments.
>>
>>88035571
There's no benefit.
>>
>>88035571
expensive hardware + bandwidth
>>
>>88035571
Because the improvement from 1080p to 4k isn’t as pronounced as the difference from SD or 720p to 1080p.
