As “4K” TV prices dip below $5000 and head rapidly towards today’s HD TV prices, it’s increasingly clear that while HD has yet to arrive in many areas, it is already yesterday’s news for manufacturers and trendsetters in the consumer electronics market.

Everyone has an opinion on the relative merits of these higher resolution displays, from “you can’t see the difference” to “it’s a game changer”.

Although “4K” is frequently used as a catchall term for high-resolution formats, there’s no reason to assume that spatial resolutions will stop at 4K.

While the lion share of most “greater than HD” digital production is being captured at 2K today, it’s important to note that there’s much more being proposed by the standards organizations than just 3840x2160 pixels, this white paper outlines these proposals.

In terms of 2K/4K, there are many flavours, such as digital film scanning resolutions like 4096×3112 and native Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) 4K 4096x2160 and DCI 2K 2048x1080 formats, along with Digital Cinema Package (DCP) delivery, which have been with us as standards for many years.
