    4K vs 8K resolution: can you tell the difference?

    Perceived improvement can be a larger consumer force — if it’s 8K, it must be better. Industry publication Streaming Media suggests content producers have long thought High Dynamic Range (HDR) has a far bigger impact on the viewing experience than resolution. But average consumers may believe more pixels equal a better picture, which makes it harder to convince them of HDR when higher resolutions like 4K or 8K are offered.

    Is the industry ready for 8K file sizes?

    Some have debated the degree to which or the rate at which 8K adoption will change M&E, but the reality is that adoption is already well underway, and the diversity of applications for this format might go a long way to hasten it. As such, there’s a good chance that 8K will impact media enterprises before they planned on it, and they’ll have to be ready for large file sizes if they want to take full advantage of the opportunity.
