The fine folks at Fortune report that YouTube has announced support for ultra high-quality video. The announcement, which came at today’s VidCon 2010 conference, promises video “that you typically see on 25 foot IMAX screens” 

As you can imagine, playing this type of video at home would require some killer setup with a fast computer running a fast Internet connection with an insane video card and display.

To be specific, the full support resolution is 4096 x 3072 which is typically abbreviated as 4K. You can watch a sample video above filmed on RedOne 4K camera.
