Understanding Frame Rate

Recorded on January 20, 2015 at the SMPTE Toronto meeting.

In viewing tests, increased frame rate delivers a greater sensation of improvement than increased resolution (at a fraction of the increase in data rate), but some viewers of the higher-frame-rate Hobbit found the sensation unpleasant. How does frames-per-second translate into pixels-per-screen-width? One common frame rate is based on profit; another is based on an interpretation of Asian spirituality. Will future frame rates have to take image contrast into consideration?
