Yea, I think like Concord there are limits.
People don't need to see at such high resolution,
or fly faster than the speed of sound.
720p is the most my computers/monitors can handle, and it's definitely
enough. Buying 8k or even 4k equipment can be rather expensive.
I think rather than going for 8k, things will go towards VR and AR.
For instance BBC is experimenting with doing 360 video for Rio
the VR experience makes it more immersive,
and only need a smartphone and some cardboard.
