Thankfully it is only for screens 60" or larger.

All we need is another format right now!

UHDV in the home market is crazy. It should be ensured that all UHDV content is shot on VERY steady rigs. Any bad motion will cause motionsickness in some people.

We've surpassed the precipitable eye resolution now with UHDV so the next step is 3D holograms...

I don't think the home market is being suggested, the original link is referring only to live, very large screen, cinema broadcasts, in cities a long way from where the events are happening.

No holograms, but the first 3D live broadcast in the UK happened this weekend - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7286852.stm
