Netflix, Inc. (NFLX): House of Cards Season 3 Masters Are In 6K

Ultra High Definition or 4K is just starting to get traction but Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is already looking beyond this type of high quality content.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has shot and finished the third season of its award-winning original series House of Cards in 6K resolution. Apparently, the entertainment content streaming service has 6K master copies of the show being kept by the production house Encore which is responsible for the show.

Nonetheless, this does not mean that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) will soon stream House of Cards in 6K. They reportedly only ordered the 4K masters for now. It should be stressed, however, that should the company decide to stream in 6K, it would be as easy as getting their 6K masters from the production house and uploading them to their system.

What’s more surprising about the revelation is that the company reportedly had all visual effects work for the new season of the show done in 6K. Usually, even 4K shows or movies have visual effects rendered in 2K for efficiency.

Netflix, is NFLX a good stock to buy, House of Cards Season 3, 6K resolution, production, RED cameras, Encore,

One reason why the company may be keeping the 6K masters stored for the moment is that 4K, much less 6K, is still not ubiquitous. Even though producing the latest season of House of Cards in 6K may be more costly now, this ensures Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) will have the content ready when there are enough 6K sets out in the market. They’d probably the one of the first companies, if not the first, to release a show in 6K when the time comes.

To give you an idea of how much better and bigger 6K is, 1080p or Full High Definition is 1,080 by 1,920 pixels in resolution in 16:9 aspect ratio. Full HD contains over 2 million individual pixels. 4K has a resolution of 3,840 by 2,160 pixels, or nearly 8.3 million pixels, in 16:9 aspect ratio. 6K has 6,144 by 3,160 pixels resolution, or about 19.4 million pixels, in 1.94:1 aspect ratio.

The House of Cards Season 3 6K masters apparently came out at about 5.5 terabytes in size, compared to about 2.5 terabytes for 4K masters. The show was reportedly shot on RED cameras with the 6K Dragon sensor by executive producer David Fincher who’s known to use RED cameras in his work which includes Gone Girl.

David E. Shaw’s D.E. Shaw & Co., L.P. owned 958,731 shares of Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) by the end of December.
