NVIDIA Quadro cards have created the first 6K movie

While TV sets and monitors still try to adopt the more and more popular 4K resolution, movies have moved to the more detailed 6K format. The first such movie is the widely popular Gone Girl, which was released just a few weeks ago. Apart from the interesting story, the movie attracts audiences with its insane resolution, unseen until now. The 6K resolution is not a result of alien technology, though – it was created by the well-known NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics cards.

The cards that have been used in particular are NVIDIA Quadro K5200 models. They were used to change the original 6K acquisition format into 2.5K for the creative edit for a streamlined review process for the movie shoot, editorial and visual effects (VFX) teams on custom-built HP Z820 workstations.

Moreover the NVIDIA Quadro K5200 cards enabled 25 times faster transcoding than the CPU of 6K to digital picture exchange (DPX), which is a common film industry format. This saved a huge amount of time that accelerated the project workflow for delivery to VFX, allowing for more iterations. It also delivered near-zero latency during playback and real-time repositioning and stabilization. This gave the filmmakers room for more experimentation when composing final shots.

We should also say that Gone Girl was also created with Adobe Premiere Pro CC. It is amazing sometimes what modern hardware can create nowadays – and we are talking about hardware that nearly everyone can buy and use on a daily basis. Aren’t we all blessed in our digital age?
