4K Comparison

About 4K UHD

A 4K Ultra HD television display has at least 8 million active pixels 3,840 by 2,160. doubling the horizontal and vertical pixels offered by 1080p HD, which has become the standard for high definition. Alive’s 5K Scanner produces a film with a resolution of 5120 x 2880. This resolution allows us to overscan the film and neatly crop it into the 4K canvas.

How is 4K cine film transfer different from HD 1080p cine film transfer?

Alive’s 5K full frame scanner offers five times the resolution of standard 1080p (1,920-by-1,080-pixel).

The extra resolution of our 5K scanner adds more detail, depth and colour resolution to the picture, resulting in images that look incredibly life-like – more like looking through a window than watching TV. Watching 4K is especially effective on giant screens – so ideally, you’ll have a 50-inch TV or even bigger. 

An interesting point about having your cine film in 4K that may help you appreciate its importance to image quality is that the film-making community considers 4K as being able to reproduce in pixel form the sort of resolution and ‘finish’ you get with 35mm film. So, although you may have shot in 8mm, 9.5mm or 16mm, this new technology brings us closer to giving you that cinematic 35mm look and feel.

Interestingly, did you know that Super 16mm cine film has up to 2400 horizontal lines. Our 5K film scanner scans at 2880 lines, So if you’re wondering if 4K is worth it, the numbers don’t lie. You may have seen a “4K” logo in movie theatres lately. If you’ve been to watch any significant blockbusters, you’ll have seen the astounding picture quality. But even when watching movies on home television, the difference is clear. While some regular viewers struggle to see the difference between 1080p and 720p, at least in smaller television sizes, it’s much more noticeable on 50-inch and larger TVs, and 4K is another significant jump still in terms of clarity and detail—especially since people are becoming more used to seemingly “perfect” resolution with today’s Retina-style screens on mobile gadgets.
