To my knowledge, the Blu-ray video standard only supports 720p60, not 1080p60.

The BluRay standard also says nothing about USB or SD memory cards, yet many players can play them.  Just 'cause it isn't in the standard doesn't mean a player can't do it.

I watch 1080p60 material plugged into the SD slot of my BluRay player on my television (and 1080p60 isn't part of the television broadcast standard, either).

You are certainly correct, and I have many options in my home to get 1080p60 media (or lower) sent to my 240Hz LCOS projector and 92-inch screen - which, by the way really shows the EM-1 straining when there is detail or motion, nothing to be done about that but tolerate it or use other shooting equipment.

My concern is for a wider distribution - many in my circle do not have the same choices. That is slowly changing, but this is the way it is for now.
