And CBS is using a Spirit DataCine film scanner, which always scans the film initially at 4K, holds that image in the frame buffer and can down-res on the fly to whatever resolution is needed... in this case, 2K.
For clarification, as you seem to be the resident expert on this, did CBS edit this in 4K, using the full resolution of the scanner, or did they down-convert it before the editing process? I think the root of the question is, has the work been done if they choose to release a 4K version or would they have to go through this process again? I would tend to believe CBS would future-proof this as much as possible to save money and time.
