Sony Pictures Home Entertainment today announced the studio’s first releases in the next-generation 4K Ultra HD™ Disc format, which will arrive in early 2016.
With a Blu-ray film dropping other language tracks, extras, etc you can shrink the size of a file from about 50gb to 25-30 without losing quality. 4k movies on the other hand are 100gb plus which is just crazy when you try to wrap your head around it. Now this figure I believe is referring to standard 90 minute films - imagine the raw size of say The Return of the King Extender edition!
Ugh, I could only imagine how big of a file that would be!
