4K is common in all parts of the production nowadays. Although most broadcasters aren’t delivering 4K, it provides production opportunities even in HDTV, offering a larger frame for Pan and Scan effects or capabilities of shooting a broader dynamic range.
Paul Sampson offers up a brilliant introduction to 4K for production which is a great read for people that are experienced in 4K worflows aswell as those who are new to the format.
Paul Sampson’s website (http://www.paul-sampson.ca/) also offers other great guides for subjects such as AMA, new features of Avid Media Composer and much more.
