Hello,

Can someone please explain the differance between 2k and 1080P?

I have the JVC HD2k Projector http://www.avrev.com/equip/jvchd2k/. It's scaler converts all inputs into 1080 60P then sends this to the projector. The projected resolution on screen is 1920 x 1080. So is it a 1080p or 2k projector as the name calls it?

Also, what is the best resolution to scale the RED One footage to view on this system? 1080P or 2K?

Thanks,
Greg

Bump.

I would also like to know the difference between 2K and 1080p. If my final product to be 1080p. I assume any 1080p HD tv should be able to view it, correct?

Shaun

The Digital Cinema Initiatives spec defines 2k as being 2048 x 1080 available pixels although pixels used depends on the aspect ratio. Either 2048 x 858 for 2.39 or 1998 x 1080 for 1.85. I think in this case JVC are possibly being slightly misleading because they are implying their projector is 2K wheras infact it takes a 2k image and then scales it to 1080p

Yes. 1080p is 1080p

If it can't display 2048 pixels horizontally, it's not 2k. Similarly, 4k means 4096 pixels horizontally.
