Yes, you're right.  I didn't think about that when I wrote it, I'm so used
to talking about input devices (as this is a filmscanner list ;-), not
output devices, and I do know it's not a sensor.

But do they say ppi related to the recording output, and if so, is that the
maximum, and when projecting onto larger film formats, obviously that "ppi"
decreases?  Again, from what you show for figures, it looks to be that 4k or
8k refers only to the physical number pixels of the imaging device on the
long side.  I don't believe it is meant to be ppi, since for the long side
of a 35mm projection, it would be 4k/8k projected across ~1.4"...and
therefore be ~2850ppi (for a 4k recorder obviously).  Now, the imaging
device may in fact be 1" along the 4k/8k side, and how relevant is that
really, compared to the output ppi (which is what we've been talking about I
