4K & Ultra High Definition: Fact of Fad?

FullHD_vs_UltraHD-x600If you’ve walked into an electronic store recently you’ve probably seen displays and TVs promoting this new fancy 4K and/or UHD concept. So, what is that? How does it work and how does it affect The Orchard and our clients? Below, I’ll provide a concise update and aim to provide some perspective on whether this is fact or fad.

What is 4K / UHD?

4K refers to the video frame size 4096 x 2160 which is exactly twice the size of 2K (2048 x 1080) made popular in digital cinema since the turn of the century. UHD on the other hand is the more accessible version of 4K, ideal for Television and 16 x 9 devices. Just as the extra wide frame size of 2K was passed over for Television in favor of the now common HD frame size 1920 x 1080, UHD is the more accessible version of 4K at 3840 x 2160. This frame size works nicely with the HD aspect ratios and TV sizes we’ve come to live with and expect. If history repeats itself, 4K should come to be the new digital cinema standard with UHD becoming the new Television and home entertainment standard.

MonishaGandhiIntroducing Monisha Gandhi, Client Manager, Film & TV

Hey there! I’m Monisha and it’s great to greet you! I’m super excited to be joining The Orchard Team and look forward to getting to know everyone. In the meantime, here’s a little bit about me…

I was born and raised in the suburbs just outside NYC, round about a little artsy village north of the Hudson, called Nyack. Post Nyack, I spent many years living in Buffalo, NY assisting in the management of one of the city’s most legendary indie music venues catering to such acts as, Moe, Jeru the Damaja, Every Time I Die, and Fishbone.

Upon my return to the New York Metropolitan Area, or as Buffalonians like to say, “Downstate,” I was offered the opportunity to continue working in support of my passion for Arts and Entertainment becoming a consultant to a number of film festivals in Venue and Programming Operations, starting and ending with the Tribeca Film Festival as Screenings Operations Manager.

But alas, home is where the heart is and after many years of living a nomadic lifestyle, I am ready and eager to settle down and make a home for myself both personally and professionally. Aside from work, you can find me in my kitchen cooking, in my car singing, in the park playing with my pitbull, at the bar shooting pool, on the phone making reservations, on the dance floor… well, you know, or simply on my couch watching Netflix.

Now that you know a little bit about me, please feel free to drop me a line in the comments to say hello!

Welcome, Bryan!

BlampeIntroducing Bryan Lampe, Localization Coordinator, Film & TV Operations

My name is Bryan. Born and raised in New Jersey, I went to college in Long Island studying Audio Recording. Before The Orchard, I wired recording studios for clients such as Alicia Keys, Metallica, and Jungle City Studios. I even helped wire the studio here at The Orchard NYC! I am a Recording Engineer in Brooklyn at the Brewery Recording Studio. I have worked with artists such as Skrillex, Mr. MFN Exquire, and Flosstradamus. Outside of The Orchard I am either running up and down the Hoboken waterfront, snowboarding, hiking, or biking. I am very excited to help grow our global reach in Film & TV ops. Thanks!
