I think this may give you some info on maximum resolutions.

that says that the new Star Trek is forever locked @ 2K cause that is what the digital scan resolution was even though it was shot on 35mm film. But dont they have the roll of 35mm film still available? Or is he saying the 35mm film is destroyed during the digital process?

I've no clue I was just sharing an article that might be helpful to answering his question. Maybe Josh is reading and can provide some more technical knowledge.

According to ARRI (the makers of the Arriflex movie camera) here are the 3 film resolutions at the taking negative:

Super 16 = 2058x1237

Super 35 = 4153x3112

65mm = 8746x3835

Pages 10 and 11:

In an article about IMAX 15/70mm it was stated that the resolution was something in the order of 12,000 x 8,000

With the exception of IMAX, we see a fraction of the taking negatives resolution because film is analog and eacg step away from the TN results in a loss if resolution. How much is lost? Read it and weep:

The BBC are already experimenting with Super HD - with the 2012 Olymoics in mind. Also digital movie thetres are 4K - and on disc too!

I think some people were confusing the resolution on those Ultra HD sets in the OP with 4K.

I thought 4K was the term used to describe the approximate number of horizontal lines of resolution. Therefore, a 4K LCD would have to have a Resolution of somewhere around 7000x4000 and the ones int he OP are more like 2K sets (if that is the correct way to describe it).

4K = 4000 x 2000

Super High Vision (Ultra HD) = 7680 4320
