Default Ultra HDTV technical standards agreed on, more pixels is a good thing

The high-definition pride of your living room may not want to hear it, but it looks like ultra high-definition TV (or UHDTV) has now taken another step towards reality. While shop-floor products remain years away, experts in the ITU Study Group on Broadcasting Service have made several agreements on technical standards for your (next?) next TV purchase. Increasing pixel count in future sets is also expected to improve viewing angles on glasses-free 3D, which needs more dots to work its lenticular magic. 33 megapixels sounds like it should be enough to work with.

This will be surreal when UHDTV finally rolls out. I always thought to myself, "How could the picture quality/clarity get much better than it already is?" Makes me wonder how much it is really *needed*...Anyways, my theory is that TV will eventually change into a more interactive forum. Not just 3D. Maybe something like Minority Report?

Actually TVs can't get much bigger than they already are without severe loss of quality. It's the same reason why PC users are yelling for higher resolutions instead of more "full HD" screens.
