The 35mm can handle 16mm as well. At the show the scanner was working
with MacBook Pro, in all likelihood even that may be overkill as the
laptop was only operating at 6% CPU usage. MacMini with thunderbolt
and thunderbolt attached storage should be functional.

UHD is indeed not 4K film. Odd choice from an archive perspective, not
as off from a newly acquired film perspective.
