Really interesting statistics related to 4K “readiness” around the globe, which is based on bit rate streams of sustained data (i.e., 15Mbps or higher). The US is ranked 13th on overall global rankings (17%), and South Korea ranked 1st overall (60%).

Interesting little editorial piece from David Cohen at Variety.  I don't alway agree with his findings (particularly when he comments on post production), but I agreed with this one.  I think his opinions of Digital Domain are insightful, and he raises good points about the VFX industry as a whole.
