4K or Ultra HD is where the industry is headed. 4K relates to the amount of resolution in terms of pixels on a screen and it is estimated at around 4,000 horizontal pixes (thus 4K) which is roughly four times the resolution of 1080p HD, today's standard for Blu-Rays and full-HD broadcasts.
4K promises to bring greter detail, depth and colour range with four times the amount of video information as we're used to. While this is an exciting proposition, the new 4K standards require that movies and content be shot in native 4K resolution using 4K capable cameras, same for broadcasts and even Internet streaming services which will require increased bandwidth to push resolution that's four times the quality of HD.
With the exception of wearable technology, the buzz in the tech world has been the introduction of 4K – or UltraHD – TV to mainstream use. In case you’ve been TV-illiterate for the last few years, let’s give you a high-level overview of what 4K actually means: the average HD-ready TV pumps out about 1920x1080 pixels, giving us what we know as high-definition TV. To our eyes, we see super-clear programming that – paired with the right television – makes those high-paid actors on the screen seem almost life-like. Great right? To most of us, this is sufficient for the amount of TV we are watching. But there is that other percent of watchers who want the best of the best; for them, there is now 4K TV. Remember that pixel count we just spoke of in HD TV? Consider it yesterday’s news. 4K TV’s have a pixel resolution of 4096x2160.
Jaw dropping, I know.
One of the biggest complaints about 4K TV is not that it isn’t the best video quality around. Up to now the biggest problem has been that there’s nothing broadcast in true 4K to watch.
Things are changing, albeit slowly. Several of the major broadcasters and content providers are making a lot more content available, whether it’s classic movies, or brand new must-see TV.

Whether you’re watching the quick action of playoff hockey or taking in the latest special effects blockbuster, ensure you experience every stunning detail in Ultra HD. With four times the resolution of Full HD, 4K Ultra HD boasts over eight-million pixels to produce lifelike colour, vivid brightness, and authentic detail. Even if you’re inches away or watching from a sharp angle, 4K allows you to soak in each detail as it’s meant to be seen.
Not only are existing DVD and Blu-ray Discs able to be upscaled by 4K technology, but old movies and smartphone clips can be enhanced with noticeable results. Whether you’re watching a new 3D movie in Full HD, streaming a YouTube clip, or embarking on a Netflix marathon, your videos will be analyzed, refined, and delivered in higher detail thanks to 4K TV technology.
