[Jeremy Garchow] "4k delivery, in my opinion, will mostly be an IP based delivery at first. It will be a splintered delivery on top of a fairly fractured market. Amazon will release a 4k IP box, Apple may release a 4K ready IP box, Roku, etc,"

Yes, agreed, all movies or scripted series and all shot in 24... pointless 4K.

The only way to capture images that measure up to 4K rez is to shoot high frame rates. The "cult of 24" prevents this in the above productions unless it's "The Hobbit".

Sounds like sports might be the best use, but live 4K... ROFLOL... let me catch my breath. That means minimum 60fps 4K that's 12Gb. To really see sharp 4K it would take 120fps which means 24Gb. 24Gb routers, switchers... my head spins. Understand that 100Mb it the top data rate supported by EVS in collaborative truck workflows and ESPN broadcasts 720x960 DVCProHD.
