      4K Studios Uses Blackmagic UHD to deliver old Kung

      January 26, 2015, 5:51 am
      San Francisco based 4K Studios are using Blackmagic Design gear to scan old 35mm Film prints to bring old Kung-Fu movies to the world's first all 4K Ultra HD streaming network. Roundhouse kicks, mis-matched dialogue dubs, and Kung-Fu style snap zooms straight out of the 70s never looked so good.
