8K Projectors

There sure is a lack of 8K  projectors in the world today (late 2019), but that will change over the next couple of years. Look for the 2020 Olympics to be broadcast in Japan and other places in 8K!   We’ve seen 8K demonstrations at trade shows. Digital Projection (a high end projector company) has shown a native 8K projector for over a year now. It is interesting in that it really is for 4K projectors in one to achieve “native 8K” and that is legit.  JVC is now shipping a native 4K projector that will support 8K content, in the same fashion that many native 1080p projectors support 4K.
8K will be a major challenge for projector manufacturers. It means packing far higher pixel density into each chip/panel.  For this reason, for the next few years, expect most 8K capable projectors to be pixel shifting 4K projectors, rather than native 8K.  No matter. The promise of 8K on the screen is another game changer. There is no reason why you can’t sit four or 5 feet back from a 150 inch screen. Talk about full immersion! Unfortunately as of today, the least expensive 8K capable projector is still almost $20,000. That will change however. We could’ve said that about 4K just five years ago, and now 4K capable projectors are about to drop below $1000 for the most entry-level models.
