1080P resolution is already history. The professional industry wants to move as soon as possible to 4K. This brings us to a 4096x2160 resolution.

It can be as much as 50MB for each frame and you need a beast to decode such a video. Even to edit it, it takes a lot of power. Nvidia is preaching 1440 resolution but the professional industry wants to go even further.

4K is movie quality and roughly twice that of the 1080P but we have a nice shot to show you the difference. The video shot we pictured is 2048 only but it still looks incredible.

The biggest shot is 4K followed by 2K, 1080 P. 720P, and the tiny one is DV. We saw this at's booth and we will tell you elsewhere about the 4096 camera that these guys are making. µ
