HOW TO DEVELOP A VIABLE 4K PRODUCTION WORKFLOW
June 01, 2014
FULL TEXT The disc is long dead, 3D has left the building, and HD is commonplace on every mobile device. So now it is 4K's turn to be the next must-have video technology. If it's going to be widely adopted before the next big thing comes along, 4K will need to move quickly in order to replace incumbent technologies and defer attention from competing new technologies such as 6K, 8K, UHD 3D, HDR, holography, and lytro-esque post-refocusing photography. (Holography, by the way, differs from 3D in two fundamental ways: your eyes focus on the holographic image rather than the display screen, and you can move around the image as you view it.) Video technologies are advancing at an astounding rate when you consider that the 1941 NTSC standard was the de jure broadcast standard in countries with 60Hz electricity for almost 70 years (although Fiji, Jamaica, and Chile are notable NTSC countries with 50Hz electricity). The story is a similar in 50Hz PAL countries too. During that time. which spans more than two human generations, the biggest improvement came in 1953 when color was added to the second NTSC standard.
