Display resolutions

2K resolution is a generic term for display devices or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 2,000 pixels.[1]

In the movie projection industry, Digital Cinema Initiatives is the dominant standard for 2K output. In the digital film production chain, a resolution of 2048x1556 is often used for acquiring "open gate" or anamorphic input material, a resolution based on the historical resolution of scanned super 35mm film.[2]
