    Anyone have any sources for HD 4k videos? I'm talking ridiculously high quality video samples, not even whole movies I just want to REALLY push the limits of high definition and the highest quality consumer video content that I've personally been able to get is raw blue ray in 1080p24fps...I want to hook my MacBook up to a display that supports the maximum theoretical resolution eventually but I want to see what 4k video looks like on my 46" inch Toshiba HD tv....I'm just a tad but more than morbidly curious about how high quality video can get...

    Thanks! Just have to wait for the download to finish haha...I would love to be able to get access to a movie like The Bourne Ultimatum in 4k...from what I understand though they only shoot in 1080p and master it in 4k no? Still very cool!

    Those 4K masters are not for sale anyway now.
    The RED is a camera shooting in 4K, but 2K is more than sufficient for cinema uses now.

    Of course your 46" only has 1920x1080 pixels...

    Haha yeah its just interesting to see I guess, the difference between 1080p and 4k on my 46" was almost none existent although 4k was allot choppier. My computer seamed to handle it fine so I think it might have to do with the TV trying to get the right FPS...what is most 4k at? I know 1080p is 24fps, 29.97fps, etc. I would assume there isn't too much of a concern with that right now though. But yeah I see your point..like anything over 960x640 on the iPhone seams to look the same but I usually go to the max of 1280x720 just because.

    Yeah I think 4k would just be a way of sucking up allot of disc space...how big is a full length 4k video :O? Whats the point of having 2k and 1080p though? Seams more like a ratio difference or still camera and video camera's formats converging...
