At CES eyeIO claimed its software suite was “studio grade” 4K ready and it will be put to the test soon, since Sony Pictures is licensing it to deliver movies to the FMP-X1 4K media player this summer. Sony didn’t have any more details to reveal about its 4K delivery plans just yet, but eyeIO’s press release claims its tech is being used on 4K video (3,840 x 2,160) encodes with support for extended color gamut. Besides easier downloading / streaming on bandwidth-constrained connections, it also helps out on the server side by requiring less storage space and distributing files more efficiently. Netflix is another recent licensee of the tech, and while not all responses to some of its new streams have been positive, we’ll wait and see what it can push to Sony’s $699 box and the Sony 4K TVs it attaches to.
