As long as it supports 1080p with 5.1 sound- then no problem.
i suspect it'll be some heavily re-compressed 720p stereo offering sold as HD.
MPAA blocked it most likely
I believe that the main use of the Fire in the US is access to all of amazon's movies 'free' with Prime. But movies are blocked by studios outside USA.
Re: Increase in spatial, but what about temporal?
it's habituation. we're used to seeing motion blur quickly in film and much less in real-life. Reduce it and you feel like like you're viewing a monitor feed ie CCTV, or some other sort of live studio event.
high frame rates are a must for ride-films for this reason - you get a visceral engagement., no this-is-a-film barrier.
But that is likely to be the discomfort factor ie "why are we watching these people live?", that will take years to get acclimatised to, much like the editing shorthand of seeing people in different scenes, but not showing how they travelled from one to the other. Early film audiences had to learn that language.
Best Picture Quality
Toshiba TVs have the highest picture quality of all LCDs out there. Resolution+ was the best of the bunch of the post processing systems that vendors are obsessed with. Then they were bringing out CELL TV, which could really have sewn up the market for people who want a quality picture.. but CEVO the downgrade is still in a class of it's own it seems.
but get this. The Toshiba ZL1 is not available in the UK - apparently we're too poor to afford it. Personally, this is true. But I thought the large number of high-rolling banksters in the City would be the main market.
Toshiba continues to shoot itself in the foot.
