The world looks a whole lot better in color than in black and white, don’t you think so? After all, I would say that one of the biggest jumps ever in terms of TV technology would be the one that goes from black and white to color. Of course, there are other milestones such as the leap to Full HD resolution, as well as 3D and 4K streaming, but are those actually far more important than showing stuff off in color? Well, it seems that the next possible quantum leap in your viewing experience would be the introduction of an algorithm by a company known as Folded Space to encode 12-bit Blu-ray discs with billions of colors.
This particular algorithm would not require you to purchase a whole new set of multimedia devices, as it will remain backwards compatible with current players, all without taking up too much space since the files would be kept at nearly the same size. Of course, uniformity needs to be established here among the studios, as they would have to be persuaded to adopt the encoding tech, while manufacturers will need to shake a leg and incorporate it into new Blu-ray players. Do bear in mind that there are very few existing TVs that are capable of reproducing billions of colors as at press time. [Press Release]
