4K Resolution Confusion

Super quick question. I'm doing my first 4K project that will be displayed on a TV. Is 3840 × 2160 the correct resolution? They haven't purchased the TVs yet for the event but I don't need to be worried about any other resolutions do I?

Thanks so much!

Best regards,

Kevin Camin

I wouldn't use FCP7 for this. I'd use Avid or Premiere Pro if you like renting your software... or perhaps even FCPX.

There's 4K, then there's UHD...both are different resolutions, both are 4K. So you need the EXACT specs from the client before you dive in. I suspect it would be UHD, which is the resolution you mentioned, because that is the network delivery spec. But I never assume, I always ask. Assuming gets you in trouble.
