Quantel's now grading in real-time in 8K

Published in Post & VFX

Real-time post production in 8K is now a reality. Just.

 Nokia's trying to establish a big lead in phone camera technology with it's new 1020 that sports a 41 megapixel sensor. Just to put it in video terms: that's an 8K sensor, in a phone!

Taken with something of a sense of irony, a camera phone can't do justice to the magnificence of an 8K, 33 megapixel video screen.

At the risk of giving the game away - probably not. But we still think that Ultra Widescreen  - 21:9 - at 4K-type resolutions is a better bet than 8K, for all sorts of reasons

Given that five minutes of uncompressed 8K can take up an entire terabyte of storage, harnessing the power of HEVC to squash it down into something both storable and transmittable is a worthwhile venture. NHK and Mitsubishi have been the first to do it with this 8K encoder.

Red raises bar with full frame 75fps 8K camera

Published in Production

It’s probably no surprise that Red has been fast to 8K in the digital cinema market as it has always been a company that pushes the resolution envelope. But in a surprise NAB announcement, Red says it is going to be releasing an 8K full frame sensor upgrade for its Weapon camera that will be able to record 8K at a rather staggering 75fps. Most people were expecting such an announcement to be a ways off yet.
