Common display resolutions
Common display resolutions

2K resolution is a generic term for display devices or content having horizontal resolution of approximately 2,000 pixels.[1] In the movie projection industry, Digital Cinema Initiatives is the dominant standard for 2K output and defines 2K resolution as 2048 × 1080.[2][3] For television and consumer media, 1920 × 1080 is the most common 2K resolution, but this is normally referred to as 1080p.

Resolutions

Examples of 2K resolutions
Format Resolution Display aspect ratio Pixels
DCI 2K (native resolution) 2048 × 1080 1.90:1 (256:135, ≈17:9) 2,211,840
DCI 2K (flat cropped) 1998 × 1080 1.85:1 2,157,840
DCI 2K (CinemaScope cropped) 2048 × 858 2.39:1 1,755,136
QXGA 2048 × 1536 1.33:1 (4:3) 3,145,728
WUXGA 1920 × 1200 1.60:1 (16:10) 2,304,000
Full HD 1920 × 1080 1.78:1 (16:9) 2,073,600
QWXGA 2048 × 1152 1.78:1 (16:9) 2,359,296

Standards and terminology

In the cinematography industry, 2K resolution traditionally refers to a digital scan of 35 mm film with a resolution around 2000 pixels wide. Typically this is done at 2048 × 1556, but the exact dimensions vary based on the aspect ratio and size of the scan area.[4]: 714 

Another common 2K resolution in cinema is 2048 × 1080. This is the resolution of the 2K container format standardized by DCI in their Digital Cinema System Specification in 2005.[2][3] The resolution of the encapsulated video content follows the SMPTE 428-1 standard,[5]: §3.2.1  which establishes the following resolutions for a 2K distribution:[6]: 6 

  • 2048 × 1080 (full frame, 256∶135 or ≈1.90∶1 aspect ratio)
  • 1998 × 1080 (flat crop, 1.85∶1 aspect ratio)
  • 2048 × 858 (CinemaScope crop, ≈2.39∶1 aspect ratio)

However, the term "2K" itself is generic, was not coined by DCI, and does not refer specifically to the DCI 2K standard. Usage of the term "2K" predates the publication of the DCI standard.[7][8][9]

The resolution 1920 × 1080 has also been referred to as a 2K resolution by other standards organizations like NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories and ITU Radiocommunication Sector (which were involved in the standardization of 1080p HDTV and 4K UHDTV).[10][11]
