Vimeo offers 4K downloads for subscribers

Starting today, Vimeo PRO members and Vimeo On Demand sellers can allow people to download 4K video files. These are just progressive downloads and not 4K streaming.

Creators have been able to upload in 4K for some time, but now these files can be downloaded and played on 4K-compatible displays.
