Content Insider #334 - Fast, Furious, 4K By Miles Weston You can't help but love 4K video content it is beautiful after all but I like it for another reason...a business reason.

The people who do all of this work on your entertainment are perfectionists and moved almost to paranoia to save every pixel, every byte. Nothing is discarded because there may come a time when they need that scene, that frame. And 4K requires four times the amount of storage...love it!!! ...Read More »
