8K - The Future of Video Resolution

Featured Tuesday, 18 April 2017 08:28

8K video is 4 times higher resolution than 4K and 16 times the size of 1080!

implied live

8K is cutting edge at this stage - and to be honest - editing this video was a strain. We filmed two short videos in 8k, with lots of 4k b-roll and ended up with almost a terabyte of data! Add to that, the RED Mags are reallllly slow to transfer off - so I had to go back the next day to continue dumping the footage.

The camera is the highest end element in our workflow - our computer, monitor and storage wasn't up to the task. They all crush 4K - but 8K was too much. Give it a couple of years and it will all have caught up - and by then 12k sensors will be on the market.

That said - 4K is here. We are filming and uploading 4k regularly now. And once 6K and 8K drop into the upper pro-sumer range, we aim to be early adopters.

    Really appreciate the instructional info in your videos Matt.
    I agree with you regarding staying current with video resolution, but I do have one correction to your statement that 8K is 4 times the resolution of 4K. There is some confusion around the relationship between pixels and resolution. 8K has 4 times the number of pixels but double the resolution of 4K, same with 4K with respect to HD. In order to double resolution you have to double the number of pixels in both the horizontal and vertical directions. So in camera parlance, in order to get double the resolution of a 16 MP DSLR you would have to go to a 64 MP DSLR, not a 32 MP DSLR.
