Boy that's small - 4K.

In the pre-press world, a number of CtP devices are using TIFF these days. There, rsolutions tend to be 2400 dpi or 2540 dpi (or higher - 3048 dpi, or for security printing even higher - 9600 dpi), with plates as large as 50" x 50". So a single scan line is 120-127K (- 150K, or for security printing...) wide. That's a very good reason for making a strip 2M.

I'm not sure what Joris meant here by "large", I'd like to point out that more and more CG films are going to IMAX. According to one source (http://cat2.mit.edu/sagrada/cg.htm), the typical resolution here is 4K wide although the theoretical limit of IMAX is 8K.
