silentstorm: What kind of standards is CEA upholding???
Last i studied form my text books, 4k resolution is referred to horizontal resolution having 4000 or more pixels. 4096 is what i understood from Zeiss research decades ago.
Why is 3840 consider 4k resolution????? So that makes 1920x1080 a 2k video standard too??? WHAT A JOKE!!!!
Is our standards getting lower?? Or did someone goofed?
err no actually, 1920x1080 is "2k" in digital cinematography. "4k" has previously been described quite routinely as anything which exceeds 4k horizontal pixels. Yes, 3840 is twice the horizontal resolution as 1080p, which does simplify many aspects.By the way, its a shame GoPro can get away with claiming their new camera is "4k" when actually it only shoots 15fps...but frame rates are another discussion I guess...
