Filmed with the GoPro Hero3 Black at 1440p. High res TV is 720p and 1080p. Highest output from media is Blu-ray at 1080p and many amplifiers can upscale other media (DVDs) to 1080p.

Technically upscaling to 1440 can be done yet will require changes in amplifier design and a TV capable of 1440p. The reason it looks good on a monitor is because it can be set to 1920i and can upscale to that resolution – if you have a video board capable of that.

Recently I saw a demo of 4k. This is the ultimate (these days) of high resolution – but, right now, that’s limited to projection TVs. Maybe in a year or so 4k will be in plasma/LCD but that would depend on how many will switch from 1080p to that.

Sidebar: I have many aviation DVDS and recently I played one I haven’t played for several years. The disc’s recording was in DVD standard of 480 yet my new amp and Blu-ray player upscaled it to 1080p (the TV’s native resolution) and I was amazed at how good it was.

Nice video. Thanks for linking it.
