4K the Bigger Picture

Is 4K going to be another 3D? or is it going to stick around?

We will take a look at Resolutions of 4K and how it compares to film. What are the market drivers, will we ever get 4k live at home? We will take a look at Image size with a comparison of 480, 720, 1080, 2048, UHD, and 4K. How do we break this up for Quad SDI what extra needs to take place with the picture? We will look at 4 way Division verses 4 way Interleave what are the advantages of one over the other. Color Space, is Rec.709 color enough or do we have to go with Rec.2020 what about ACES or XYZ? Does 4K look any different on a Waveform Monitor, Vector Scope, and Gamut screen? Now that we are using 4 SDI links what about timing between the links? What are some of the Picture reconstruction errors that can take place? If I am 10 clocks off in my link timing will my picture be shifted by 10 pixels? We will also take a look at other Aspect ratios and how that fit in the 4K SDI raster.
