The Blender Institute has secured funding for a re-render of Tears of Steel in 4K. This means an 'Ultra-HD' version will become available as well. I guess that's good news for people who spend a fortune on one of these new tv's - at least now they have something to watch! ;-)

The Amsterdam Cinegrid Consortium has agreed on allocating a budget for us to re-render the film in epic 4k! With all original footage being in 4k (and cleaned at that size as well) it’s going to be mostly a challenge for our rendering, compositing and grading pipeline. Interesting job!
The format we’ll use is 4K CinemaScope cropped, 4096 × 1714, in 2.39:1 aspect ratio. That will become available as DCP as well.
