I watched a soccer match in 4k once and it was the only demo I saw that actually made use of the extra resolution, since all the faces in the crowd were sharp. All the other demos (including in the Sony store, which should have been real 4k) didn't look a whole lot different from 1080p.

Interestingly enough, even 720p before it is processed and uplinked, etc, with top rated cameras and monitors looks so real it's like looking thru a window.

Interesting. Must be on a small screen though.

You know, I got to hand it to the Beb, they are pretty good at doing R&D on new broadcast technologies. Sadly, their in-house produced material is usually several years behind the rest of the world (just look how long it was before Doctor Who was shot in HD). If only the Beb could move faster from Research into production (although the fact that the Beb broadcast several things in 3D is a testiment to their willingness to embrace new things).
