When do you think 4K video cameras will be a basic requirement?

It seems, presently, people have really embraced HD video devices; camcorders, interchangeable lens cameras, on cell phones, etc...

There's talk of 4K on the horizon, mostly in regards to TV's, but also new 4K camera releases in 2014.

So, assuming it will be from the top, down...when will wedding videographers/other pros need to have a 4K video device as a basic requirement...then video people like Craigslist videographers answering ads...then down to basic YouTubers, family video, etc.

It seems this would be quite a monumental shift with new requirements for computers, cameras, lenses, then eventually bandwidth.

What year are we talking about? 2015, 2016...later? How much longer are our 1920x1080 video recording devices good for....for pros, novices, then your average person?

Or maybe 4K won't have huge adoption and, for most people, it will go from hanging onto HD then eventually 8K into the distant future?
