High Definition TV

High Definition

What is perfection? 
Nothing is, as we all know; but the new Ultra High Definition 4K televisions (UHDTV) come awfully close.
Stunning levels of resolution,more realistic colors and higher frame rates, and many new features…

At its most basic, 4K describes the resolution of your TV set (or the amount of pixels used to make up an image), but it is also increasingly being used to describe a combination of a whole host of new features which together are ushering in a new era in image quality.
 
At the end of the day it might not be the raw resolution of 4K that tempts you into your next TV purchase, but the inclusion of other cool technologies like High-Dynamic Range, Quantum Dot and OLED panels.

Pure and simple, 4K means a clearer picture. It's more pixels (8,294,400 to be exact) on the screen at once that creates images that are crisper and capable of showing more details than standard HD.
 
4K resolution, at least the way most TVs define it, is 3840 x 2160 or 2160p. To put that in perspective, a full HD 1080p image is only a 1920x1080 resolution. 4K screens have about 8 million pixels, which is around four times what your current 1080p set can display.
More pixels means more information. More information means sharper pictures. Sharper pictures are more engaging. More engaging content is more fun.
 
Content?  Not a lot yet but it is coming…While there are currently no cable boxes that will support 4K in the US, the industry is gearing up for a new broadcast standard which is promised to deliver 4K resolutions. Called HEVC or H.265, this new codec is seen by manufacturers and broadcasters as a way to deliver compressed 4K content economically.
 
While receiving HEVC-compressed TV channels will certainly mean a new cable box, nearly every 4K TV announced at CES 2014 will also include decoding support for the HEVC standard.
 
So while it is not perfect…Ultra 4K takes you right to the edge with a new standard in viewing realism….don’t miss it…!
