8K Has Real Benefits for Grain Representation of Film Content
In an interview on YouTube, and reported on our sister site ‘Discover 8K’ image quality expert Florian Friedrich explained that depending on the film stock and chemistry, the grain of some film stock can be smaller than the pixels of 8K. 8K can therefore maintain the look of film-based material more accurately. There are also particular issues that can arise when processing film content as the structure of the image is not arranged in a grid pattern, as it is on the display where it will be shown. Having more resolution helps in minimizing distortions and artifacts from the grid structures of digital displays.
