8K and HDR are set to be on an exponential rise as Vimeo's latest update shows.

It might have slipped a little under the radar, but Vimeo has just had a major update to the types of videos that it can now host. Both 8K and HDR feature prominantly.

It seems that 8K announcements are now coming thicker and faster than ever. It isn't surprising since it is inevitable. After all, 4K is now pretty normal. It can be streamed over major film supplier services, and pretty much any new camera that comes onto the market is now 4K. Looking back 4K was already starting to pick up a huge amount of pace in 2013. When we hit 2018 in a months time that will be 5 years ago. 4K has reached maturity, and although there are still large numbers of people who have yet to move beyond HD for their day-to-day work, now we are looking beyond this.

Vimeo's inclusion of 10-bit HDR is long overdue, but extremely welcome. In fact Vimeo is currently now the only social video hosting service that is capable of streaming 10-bit HDR video over all of Apple's latest devices, such as the new 4K Apple TV. Although ironically HDR is not currently supported on Apple's desktop models.
