Amazon To Shoot 4K Drama Series In 2014

By David Richards | Tuesday | 17/12/2013

Amazon Studios whose products are available to download in Australia is set to start shooting 4K Ultra HD content for sale online.

The original film and TV production arm of Amazon.com the production studio will shoot all 2014 full original series, including comedies and dramas, in 4K Ultra HD format, the online retailing giant said Monday.

"As a premium original content creator, we're excited about 4K and the future of Ultra HD technology, particularly as we move into drama series next year," said Roy Price, director of Amazon Studios. "All of the pilots and series we produce next year will be shot in 4K. That includes our first ever drama series that we will green-light next year -- we think customers are going to love watching these series in the highest resolution ever available to consumers and we can't wait to deliver it."

Ultra HD 4K features resolution of 3,840 by 2,160 pixels or 8.3 million pixels, which is four times the number of pixels as standard Full HD images.

Amazon Studios announced earlier this year that it will debut five new comedy and drama pilots in 2014. Customers will be invited to watch, provide feedback and help determine which of the pilots should be produced as series to air exclusively on Prime Instant Video and Amazon's LOVEFiLM in the UK.

This round of comedy and drama pilots from Amazon will include "The After," from Emmy-nominee Chris Carter ("The X-Files"); "Bosch," based on the best-selling "Harry Bosch" book series by Michael Connelly; "Mozart in the Jungle," from Academy Award-nominee Roman Coppola ("The Darjeeling Limited"), Jason Schwartzman ("Moonrise Kingdom," "Rushmore") and Alex Timbers ("Peter and the Starcatcher"); "The Rebels" from Kevin Iwashina, Jeremy Garelick, Constance Schwartz, Matt Alvarez and Michael Strahan (former New York Giants football player and host of Live with Kelly and Michael), and "Transparent" from Emmy-nominee Jill Soloway ("Six Feet Under").

The shows that are then selected to move into full series, along with additional pilots filmed in 2014, will all be filmed in Ultra HD.

Amazon has also introduced an Ultra HD 4K Ultra HDTV Guide for the US market at www.amazon.com/4K.

Customers will find helpful information about the differences between 4K and regular high definition, an HD pixel comparison chart, a graph that illustrates the various jumps in resolution from standard definition all the way to 4K, factors that impact picture quality, and a guide on relevant terminology.

Customers will also find Amazon's selection of the latest models of 4K TVs and 4K compatible receivers and Blu-ray players.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
