Press Release

Amazon Studios, the original film and TV production arm of Amazon.com, today announced that it plans to shoot all 2014 full original series, including comedies and dramas, in 4K Ultra HD. 4K is the latest and most advanced in high definition video, utilizing displays with an aspect ratio of at least 16:9 and capable of showcasing video at a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels or 8.3 million pixels—that’s four times the number of pixels as standard full HD. 4K means customers can enjoy their favorite movies and TV shows with unprecedented picture clarity—details are sharper with smoother lines so that even up-close images seem clearer and more realistic.

“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”

„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.“

Amazon Studios announced earlier this year that it will debut five new comedy and drama pilots in 2014. Customers will be invited to watch, provide feedback and help determine which of the pilots should be produced as series to air exclusively on Prime Instant Video and Amazon’s LOVEFiLM in the UK. This round of comedy and drama pilots from Amazon will include The After, from Emmy-nominee Chris Carter (The X-Files), Bosch, based on the best-selling Harry Bosch book series by Michael Connelly, Mozart in the Jungle, from Academy Award-nominee Roman Coppola (The Darjeeling Limited), Jason Schwartzman (Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) and Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), The Rebels from Kevin Iwashina, Jeremy Garelick, Constance Schwartz, Matt Alvarez and Michael Strahan (former New York Giants football player and host of Live with Kelly and Michael), and Transparent from Emmy-nominee Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under). The shows that are then selected to move into full series, along with additional pilots filmed in 2014, will all be filmed in 4K.
