Black Panther

Although it does have a 4K master, the media was shot in less than 4K using a high-quality camera.  Even films shot with a 3.4K camera have more than three times the pixels as an ordinary 1080p Blu-ray.  These titles should see a noticeable improvement over a standard Blu-ray.  Check the information below to see if the studios have upgraded the video with HDR or added immersive Dolby Atmos or DTS:X audio tracks.

  • Shot in 3.4K  (some scenes 4K, and 6K)
  • VFX Rendered in 2K
  • Digital Intermediate at 4K* (2K DCP for theaters)
