First ever 5k/2700p SBS XXX video's!


#1

I know everybody here only uses their Pimax for playing games and nobody cares about porn (LOL) but I thought to mention, just from a scientifical pov of course, that “Czech VR” just raised the bar and now is releasing 2700p/5k video’s. And man, they look sharp, or so I’ve been told :wink: It really shows that 1440p->4k conversion isn’t the problem, it’s content that needs to improve, before native 4k even makes sense.

Yeah, I’m enjoying this new videos a lot. Better than 4k (3840x1920) seriously. Twice more pixels.
About 1400p->4k conversion: when we watch movie we can’t see all pixels which contains movie at once. We see only part of them (which falls to hmd fov). Even with this new 5k+ movies we still see significantly less than Pimax input (2560x1440). I think 2560x1440 input will be enough even for “8k+” quality of videos which of course we’ll see in future ))

I only hope that Pimax 8K will be compatible with this videos and other older videos too. Did you notice that this videos release with many formats? For Oculus, for GearVR, for others. And if to watch Oculus video in GearVR, or contrariwise GearVR video in Oculus, this will look wrong. I hope that Pimax 8K will play “Oculus” versions of files the same good as Oculus or as Pimax 4K did (because exactly “Oculus” versions have the best resolution).

Ah yeah I hadn’t even calculated it, but it’s double the pixel amount indeed ! The only thing is that they didn’t improve is the bitrate, it’s still 30 mb/s. However they’re using H265, maybe that makes up for it. The quality is incredible though, if this is possible with 1440>4k scaling I wonder how native 4k will look when they increase the resolution even more ! I also wonder if quality improves even more if they increase the bitrate.

Hi, the topic may be is too old but I would appreciate you told me which VR player you are using to see these videos. Thanks!
