If the industry is not using DisplayPort because of DRM, it is official that it is ruining home theater.
Wasn't the reason 4K was knocked down to 3840 because HDMI couldn't handle the bandwidth? DisplayPort can, and yet they still go ahead and bastardize the home theater experience just to be able to use HDMI?
The HDMI 2.0 spec is done and states 4K. But is this 4096 horizontal resolution or 3840? Can HDMI 4.0 handle 4096 horizontal?
Listening to Home Theater Geeks episode 158 really ticked me off that the industry isn't going with 4096 res with DisplayPort.
Greetings Mr. D,
Likely correlates to characteristic of the film capture itself i.e film tracks color logarithmically like the human eye, coupled with significant latitude / headroom. Also, S16mm and 35mm film has unmatched color saturation quality. Very desirable ingredients in the industry.
Personally I'm not concerned with BBC perspective. 2K, nice fit for S16mm and 4K is not overkill for 35mm.
'Moonrise Kingdom' is a great example IMO
'Moonrise Kingdom' S16mm
'The Wrestler' S16mm
Maybe darinp2 knows why the BBC shows 2K content as Std Def only?
S16mm is 2K, content is more then 1920 x 1080
The color depth of S16mm is way more then (HDTV) obligatory Rec 709.
"...In particular, Scrubs has been shot on Super16 from the start and is aired either as 4:3 SD (first 7 seasons) or as 16:9 HD (seasons 8 and 9). John Inwood, the cinematographer of the series, believed that footage from his Aaton XTR Prod camera was not only sufficient to air in high definition, it "looked terrific."
Empirical evidence? A BBC opinion does not have global significance that I'm aware. BBC deviated from universal standard SMPTE C phosphor for technical reason?
