    I went shopping last night and spent a lot of time checking out and learning about 4K UHD televisions.
    Some of the actors on the demo tapes being shown obviously did not have the professional Hollywood make up done prior to filming. It's like a horror movie on a 4K big screen. Every pockmark, zit, pore, blotchy color, rash, blemish, scar, etc., was shown in a bright, crystal clear view that you can't miss.

    I see this as being a real problem for actors, news anchors, sportscasters, reporters..........anybody on television who doesn't have perfect skin or access / time for professional makeup.

    Note to self: Lots of beautiful well dressed women at the mall in a festive holiday mood.

    This makes me wish Howard would get another TV gig, just for the laughs.

    I think they have some updated frosted FX for HDTV, because a lot of older women aren't looking as bad as they should (like Meredith Viera), so I'm sure they'll have something for 4K UHD.

    I dont like those tvs - its too hyper-real. If you saw the hobbit in that 48 FPS format you'll know what I mean.

    I'm not sure what would be worse or more entertaining - Pre Hollywood Howard with warts and all or Post Hollywood Plasticized Howard.

    If this photo is supposed to be an example of anything other than, "something I would eagerly destroy without a second's hesitation", then I'm afraid you've missed your mark, my good man. :D

    It's bullshit. I work in 4K every day in the post business, and a lot of what we do is use various filters and defocus tricks to knock skin sharpness down in actor's faces. It's not rocket science to do. The rest of the picture stays sharp. The same problem has existed for 15 years, so this is nothing new.

    I just got a new Samsung 4k and it's very true - a lot of female news anchors are now hideous

    I believe you. The other night the wife and I checked out an episode of Supergirl. Without question there was post work done on any footage featuring Claista Flockhart...it was very obvious.

    They make a great computer monitor for gaming. Looking at getting at 40" for this purpose.
