NHK is the main one who has been shooting/doing test broadcasts in 7.68K - as well as partnering with the BBC. I don't know of any film companies shooting digitally at around 8K. Maybe the IMAX shot...

In the Blu-ray spec thread they show info created by the BDInfo program. Wouldn't it be possible for a program like that to read the audio data off the disc to automatically detect clipping?

Have they said anywhere that 4K (3.84K) resolution is mandatory on a UHD Blu-ray disc release? There's also 1080p in the UHD spec.

But you don't need to spend that sort of money. That IMAX home thing (at £1.8 million) is only 4K.

Why would they need an 8k cinema format for 4K 3D if they don't use a 4K cinema format for 2K 3D? Plus doesn't passive half the resolution you get (like on TVs with half the pixels split between left...

If UHD BD is able to do 2160p60, shouldn't it also have the bandwidth to be able to do 2160p30 and 24 in 3D (assuming TV & HDMI could handle it)? Or side-by-side, reduced resolution 2160p60 (ie....

What people have been saying is that even effects for 4K films tend to be done at 2K. Maybe because of expense/resources - time taken to render each frame may be 4x (plus not just rendering but more...

It will probably be 5 years till the first consumers broadcasts of 7.68K, and that will be in Japan. So there won't really be content for them for a while, and it looks like UHD BD won't have 7.68K...

Well anyone who has around $120,000 can have a 5120x2160 105 inch LCD TV. :). But I'm sure there will/could be 21:9 normal priced UHD TVs like there were with 1080p.
