Hi. Steve Yedlin here. This article is mostly great, but I wrote to the editors asking them to correct a few misleading details in it. But they've neither responded nor updated the article, so I'm posting here the notes I sent them:
-6 cameras were used but your article only lists 5. You seem to have combined AlexaXT and Alexa 65 into one. The Alexa65 is not 3k as the article says, but 6k. It's the AlexaXT that's 3k
-The article has positioned the phrase "Anything beyond UltraHD offers no benefit at all" within the page the same way it has positioned a quote of mine. Even though the article doesn't use quotation marks, the positioning and typesetting of the sentence and its association with my demo could imply that it's a quote from me or that it represents content of the demo, which it doesn't. Nothing in the demo makes that assertion or anything similarly superlative or hyperbolically categorical. To the contrary: there's a whole section in the demo special circumstances under which increased spatial resolution could be beneficial. The whole demo is very rigorous in its use of carefully measured language not to make overreaching statements such as this one.
-I don't contend, as the article says I do, that we've reached "peak" resolution. That implies it's the max possible. I never claim in the demo that more resolution isn't possible -- only that it's not especially applicable to a cinema audience's experience and that it can't usefully be quantified with k-counting. A better word might be "saturation" -- we've reached saturation of resolution for most practical applications for cinema viewing.
-Why does your link to Part 1 say "production" and link to Part 2 say "post production"? Those words don't correctly differentiate the two parts from one another in subject matter. Both parts are about acquisition AND pipeline for high resolution exhibition. Part 1 is more of a flyover for general concepts and Part 2 is more technically detailed, but they're both about both acquisition and pipeline, not just one or the other.
