Amazon Studios to Shoot and Deliver 2014 Original Drama and Comedy Series in 4K Ultra HD


“As a premium original content creator, we’re excited about 4K and the future of Ultra HD technology, particularly as we move into drama series next year,” said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “All of the pilots and series we produce next year will be shot in 4K. That includes our first ever drama series that we will greenlight next year—we think customers are going to love watching these series in the highest resolution ever available to consumers and we can’t wait to deliver it.”

Anyone wanting to watch 4K streams from Amazon will need a fast broadband pipe, about 15 Mbps according to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. But I recommend 50 Mbps.
