This is a test designed to see the difference between the way YouTube and Vimeo encode the same uploaded 4K file.

I could only upload a maximum of 500MB to Vimeo due to my account, so the Vimeo video is shorter, but from the exact same 4K source as used for the YouTube upload.

The other restriction with my Vimeo account is that it will only encode up to 720P. For direct comparison of encode quality, you are best viewing both the YouTube and Vimeo encodes at 720P

Here is the link to the YouTube video:

The shots were are all done hand held using a BlackWing 3 camera rig The camera is in fully automatic to show a typical use of this camera. The mic is a cheap £7.00 one from eBay
