[url="http://www.eoshd.com/content/483"]On this day exactly 1 year ago[/url] EOSHD reported on a rare sighting – a 4K digital cinema camera with Nikon mount from JVC.

This product has quietly matured into something nearing release with a rumoured launch date of April 2012 at NAB and a rumoured price said to be under $9,000. However since this is JVC we’re talking about, something is probably odd about it.

Does this cut the mustard?

HDMI 1.4 supports QuadHD, but only up to 30p, not 60p, so you would still need multiple connections. And, as far as I know, HD-SDI -- even 3G-SDI -- doesn't support 4K (or QuadHD) with one connection, either. There are rumors that HDMI 1.5 will be announced later this year and will support 4K up to 60p, but devices with HDMI 1.5 probably wouldn't show up until next year.

Then there's the codec, and 8-bit, 4:2:0, 144-Mbps H.264 won't cut it. And if this camera supports the same color depth as the HMQ10's, it'll be only 8-bit, even over HD-SDI (remember, the Panasonic AF100's HD-SDI port is only 8-bit).
