So what is "4K restoration"? It actually refers to 4K resolution, which is the amount of information about the picture that is stored in the DVD files -- meaning 4,000 lines of scanning per frame of film. It's four times as much data as the current standard of 2K resolution contains. Warner feels that 4K resolution is preferable for archival-quality transfers. Read the Hollywood Reporter article on the restoration if you want more technical details about the restoration process. In my experience, Warner tries to release as high-quality a DVD as possible, whether it's a box set of comedies from the 1930s or a recent movie, and I'm pleased to see the studio is continuing to focus on the quality of the print transfer when re-issuing older movies on DVD.
