SPace is first 4K TV project
First 4K project for TV is called Space

Ultra HDTVs or 4K TVs are nearing but what about the content? Sure, you could believe the TV manufacturers’ upscaling talk but we need real content. That is why we are really excited to hear that Sony, Discovery and IMAX have announced the first native 4K project for TV, called Space. It will also include a 3D version.

Space is first 4K project for TV

Sony, Discovery and IMAX have created 3net Studios that originally aimed to create 3D content. That ambition has been expanded to 4K content, it seems. The trio has just announced Space.

The world’s first native 4K show will be called Space


Space is the first show for TV (movies are considered a different category) produced in native 4K resolution. Space will combine Ultra HD footage and 3D to explore our vast and impressive universe.

That is extremely exciting but it obviously requires that people start buying the ultra-expensive Ultra HDTVs, and with a price tag of over 20,000 USD it is not happening overnight. Prices need to come down. We can obviously see Space in Full HD and 3D before that but we want the real experience so we hope TV manufacturers will speed up development.

3net has also announced other shows, including Marksmen (3D motion comic), Frozen In Time: Our History in 3D (documentary), Wingsuit Warrior: Jeb Corliss vs. The World (documentary) and Daydream (travel series).
