Post Did 4K open any new opportunities for you ?
I understand the technical superiority of 4K, but I am wondering if it makes sense from a business point of view for someone who doesn't specialize in TL movies. In particular, did any of you get any opportunities (licensed footage or hired) because you had 4K finished movies, that you wouldn't have gotten if those movies were 2K ?

I'm wondering this same thing QT. I licensed some footage to Infinity/Nissan for their 3 month US/Canada/Mexico commercials and asked my contact there if it was sufficient that I only had 1080P - her response was that nearly everything they license that isn't assignment work is 1080 still.

Have you been approached by Nimia at all? I got an e-mail from them about a week ago - I responded but didn't hear anything after that. It looks like a pretty well put together site. I've always self-licensed with a pretty good level of success and I suspect you have as well.

We've licensed 4K+ material for corporate installations, displays, that kind of thing. Had a number of sales in the last year or so, and got pretty good money for them. Plus the BBC NHU always want the highest res possible. But for the average broadcast client, I'd guess anything more than 1080 is just a pain and not something they'd pay extra for. Give it a couple of years though...
