10K Video Makes Clear That It’s About More than Moar

Last year, at the the NAB Show in Las Vegas, there was much ado about the workflows for the emerging 4K and 8K resolution cameras coming down the wire. But no one was talking about 10k video resolution yet.

While many scratch their heads wondering why we need Super HD, Mega HD, Ultra HD, Uber HD, HD Plus and whatever else the consumer names will be for 4K, 8K and beyond, and of course – while post production types at the mid range wonder if they are ready to commit to the overhead and storage considerations in switching to these higher resolution workflows – an astonishing new video demoing 10K footage, shot on the PhaseOne IQ180, has been released.

What is so powerful about this video is that it demonstrates the real reason that these much higher resolutions will not only be inevitable, but also transform the medium as whole and that is – the ability to capture minutiae that would otherwise be lost, all at once, and then zoom way in to that footage, anywhere, to be able to reframe shots on an unprecedented level. You can even extract 2 5K shots out of a frame, for example. The creative possibilities are enormous, but I will leave them to you to ponder.
