Moving images have been around now for over a hundred years. In fact, the first true “film” debuted in 1900. The first talkie came in 1927 and color features hit the mainstream in 1939, with screening of The Wizard of Oz and Gone With The Wind. 1927 was also important as it was the beginning of a burgeoning new technology, television. Regular service coming on just a year later. However, it wasn’t until 1944 that NBC introduced network television.
Of course, the next big innovation was color TV in 1953. Things stayed relatively static until the digital revolution began in the 1990’s. Full HD transition would be rolled out in the late 2010’s. 4K television was introduced in 2003. It’s only within the last couple of years that 4K television has gained traction in the television production world. If you’ve noticed the timeline that I’ve laid out, for most of the 20th century, things progressed rather slowly.
Since the 1990’s, the progression of technology has increased at a very rapid pace. While 4K is the current standard, 8K and 10K cameras are already available for those who have the cash, and more importantly, the data space to utilize these latest in video vanguard. And while those of us who produce video have been trying to keep up with the latest and greatest, video has really come into its own on the internet.
