4K and Higher Resolution Videos
United 3D Labs' unique interactive graphics service is to process video and create ultra-high-resolution computer graphics, such as:
- video walls
- multiscreen configurations
- video mapping
- installations and museum exhibitions;
- events and shows;
- visual design of public spaces.
The fact that we have, first and foremost, high-class specialists as well as our own 56 Gb/s local network, 512 GB RAM workstations, 300 TB of server space, and GPU render farm enables us to efficiently work with 8K, 16K, and even 32K resolution videos.
High and ultra-high resolution videos
Technology doesn't stand still, now we've reached the point where almost every new TV has Ultra HD resolution. Furthermore, cheap media streamers output 4K; more and more movies and games are also in 4K. With the exception of broadcast TV, 4K is basically becoming positively mainstream today. This way, developing high-resolution video content and graphics is especially relevant in film production.
Moreover, it also has been widely used for video walls and virtual reality. 4K content is shown on YouTube and Vimeo. Furthermore, there is an 8K resolution TV channel launched in Japan.
Applications of ultra-high-resolution videosCurrently, video processing and creating high-resolution graphics are relevant in three areas:
- film production;
- content for video walls;
- virtual reality.
Almost all modern films are released in Full HD format. Even when shown in cinemas, in the vast majority of cases their resolution is 2K. However, when producing a film, it is often more convenient to process high-resolution material (for instance, 4K). This way one can remove some technical defects, zoom or crop the image, etc.
Content for video walls
High-resolution computer graphics is essential when building large video walls or any video installations. In this case, we are talking not only about 4K but often significantly higher resolutions, such as 8K or 16K, which proportions are very different from the standard 16:9 or 4:3. Up-to-date LED walls have a 2mm pixel pitch, therefore, based on this we get that a 10x5 meters video wall displays an image with a resolution of 5000x2500 pixels. Naturally, you could go with regular 1920x1080 resolution, but why to spend considerable sums on quality equipment and to use it only at half of its capacity? Make the most of a seamless image and excellent optical characteristics that make video wall content look great from any angle.
4K and higher resolution videos have been gaining ground in the VR section. Due to the fact that VR headsets provide the viewer with a 360-degree perspective, the content resolution should be at least 2 times higher than the usual Full HD, i.e. 4K. In fact, it should be even higher to provide a comfortable experience.
Let's start a new project together! Designers and specialists of United 3D Labs are thrilled to bring your ideas to life.
