Would love to see one of these in action in real life.

Thought it will be huge, much easier to make a display big at 16K than say a 40" to do 16K, not really evolutionary

2K is mainstream. Go into any shop and see if you can buy a standard def TV. It's all HD and above.
I don't know what you call standard def. FHD is by far the majority. Sure I can go into any of the major shops and buy an 8k as well, doesn't make them mainstream.

You're contradicting yourself.

FHD is not 2k.

It is. The only difference is DCP 2K is a few pixels wider than FHD. (2048x1080 vs 1920x1080). Resolution is defined by it's height. (480p, 560p, 720p, 1080p, 2160p, 4320p... etc) not it's width. The width is referred to as the aspect ratio.

2K is referred to for cinema use and FHD for consumer use.

True cinema 2K, 4K and 8K will never be used in the consumer space. Don't confuse the two.

Also, why do you think a DCP standard would be mainstream?

DCP 2K is only used on cinema cameras and projectors. It will never be used in the consumer space. Its a intermediary format.

FHD and UHS is the consumer variant of the two DCP standards.
