Post house Molinare's general manager Richard Wilding discusses the impact of 4K filmmaking from a post-production standpoint.

He writes on Televisual, "The general impact of [4K] is more storage is needed and transfer times are slower for the equivalent duration of media. The ability of systems to playback and process the files is similarly affected, and technically assessing the images at full resolution requires high quality 4K displays or projectors that are currently rare. In practice, this doesn’t mean that 4K is unworkable. Carefully planned storage management can help cope with the increased volume of media, and modern grading and editing systems perform much more smoothly with 4K images."
