And people say I frequently mention soccer, but never rugby. Well, to those who favor the slogan “Give blood…play rugby”. Here you go - http://advanced-television.com/2013/...-for-ibc-demo/

Contrary to what some misinformed people on other forums believe (http://www.avsforum.com/t/1466602/fi...#post_23188510 ) in regards to D-Cinema deliverables, namely DCPs -

Grown-Ups 2
Image Format: 4K flat (3996 x 2160)
File Size: 123.7 GB
Audio Format: 5.1

Which b.t.w., the above ^ is nothing new, for instance from back in 2011 –

Moneyball (2011)
Image Format: 4K flat (3996 x 2160)
File Size: 226 GB
Audio Format: 5.1

soccer, rugby, baseball flick, what's next?

Yep. I heard about that. Really happy about it. It will be 2015 and i'll be able to still go see film.

I'm sure there are plenty other movies in the future though, yes?

Are those file sizes compressed? Seems small.

...at your digital theater.

Film immediately transferred to digital, edited in digital, with digital FX and enhancements, and then finally transferred to a digital IP.

But you can't deny the look and feel of film. Even if it's projected digitally.

I've seen several movies in the past couple years that I've had to look up the specs to see that they were actually shot digital.

Film is pretty much becoming obsolete.

Possibly a stupid question but can we still watch these new mastered in 4K Blu-ray's if you haven't got a 4K TV? Or so you need a 4K Tv to view them?

Sadly, yes. It won't be long before Kodak goes out of business. Hell, even IMAX is having digital cameras.

It's inevitable that film will become a thing of the past. It's just a matter of time.

Quick answer, No. You don't need 4K TV.

I think we should write up a sticky FAQ explaining Sony's Mastered in 4K Blu-ray.

For the most part yes, film usually looks better than digital. Film generally has a better tendency of showing lower resolution images better than digital can. Digital 2K is not superior to film, it just looks like an acceptable alternative.

I would not be surprised if we still see some 35mm installations when Episode VII is released. The cost of re-installing 35mm is not at all significant. I think we will see some of the IMAX "rail" systems come to life for the release of Episode VII. The buzz, hype and demand for The Dark Knight and the The Dark Knight Rises in 15/70 was impressive.

.
I don't think it will be completely gone, somebody will make it if Episode VII demands it.

Hey now, i wasn't still expecting a complete photochemical workflow(i guess i'll always have Christopher Nolan for that......for now). I wish. But still having film around is good enough for me. Going through a DI and all. I love the way the movie Burn After Reading looks-

http://www.hundland.org/hd/b/b.htm#burn

And as, BozQ, said. The film look is there regardless.

EDIT- Found an interesting discussion-

Plenty? Don’t count on it. For it’s really difficult to find a lab that will process film anymore, even if you can get the celluloid from Kodak. You really, really have to want to shoot on film what with going through all the hassle involved with it these days.

Yes, a single uncompressed 4K image requires a data rate of about 955 Mbyte/sec (at 24 fps) which is way too much to be handled by digital theater projection systems so, compression has to be applied. DCPs are produced with an intra-frame compression algorithm known as JPEG2000….http://www.iso.org/iso/catalogue_det...csnumber=37674

Universal application of JPEG 2000 compression to digital images (be it either 2K or 4K) makes global interoperability of Digital Cinema possible.

On this thread and with you being from Liverpool , the only question I can think of which you could ask that might be considered stupid, would be if you wanted to know who Steven Gerrard is.

See, Boz’s answer to your technical question.

Not a bad idea, if only for the reason stated in the last sentence here….https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread...ve#post7956463

Just make sure that whoever writes it up entitles the sticky as the “Official” explanation; otherwise, it will not qualify as credible fact.
