This awesome video was filmed and edited at 4K (4069x2304) resolution, four times greater than regular 1080p HD.

Most digital films, commercials and TV drama`s are shot at 4K.
You`re only going to get the best out of it on a cinema screen, however 4K footage downsampled to HD looks better than footage shot at HD. It`s the same effect as downsampling audio.

intrigid: I quoted wikipedia for the UHDTV specifications, Look Here if you want more technical details.

If it`s all made in 4k resolution why is the maximum resolution available 1440 as an HD download.

Doesn`t make sense, why would a wookie live on endor

LazyMe: Imax is at 7680 x 4320, which is the same as the proposed Ultra High Definition Television or UHDTV. That`s 16 times the number of pixels of HDTV.

The main problem with videos at these resolutions is storage, 20 minutes of UHDTV video would require 4 Terabytes of storage space."

I assume you`re talking about storage for editing, not for home viewing.

I believe that a 2 hour Blu-ray movie fits on 25 gigs. I might be a little bit off in either direction but it`s pretty close to that. Multiply that by 16 times, and that means that a 2 hour 7680x4320 would fit on 400 gigs.

[quote]The main problem with videos at these resolutions is storage, 20 minutes of UHDTV video would require 4 Terabytes of storage space.[/quote]

Hmm...by my quick calculations, that`s 16bpp uncompressed. Or are you going on 32bpp with a 50% compression? Or maybe 24bpp with a 33% compression?

There are free lossless codecs that achieve >50% compression.

Maybe it`s a processing power issue. Decompressing 7680x4320 at 60fps would take a lot of processing power for a TV.

Data transfer rate would also be an issue. 7680*4320*60*2 (res*framerate*bytes per pixel) means you`re looking at ~4GBps and that`s too much. What could you transfer it off for home use? It would have to be solid state and that would make it hideously expensive.

Yes. They`ll cost you ~US$15,000 and a TV five feet wide is probably too large for your home, but they do make them. Although someone who can afford that much for a TV probably has a big enough house for it to fit.

In other words, it`s just the file size from an average VDSLR before compression.

Why not just call it 2304p?

Also, isn`t Imax at a crazy resolution like this?

While it was filmed in 4k, there is nothing out there that lets you upload videos that with that big of res, its probably playing at 720

Sucks compared to my 5.5 Terapixel Hasselhoff VideoCam. You could theoretically make a video the size of the moon and not loose detail.
