FAQ About 4K Ultra HD

What is 4K Ultra HD?

4K Ultra HD (sometimes referred to as “4K” or “UHD” for short) is a trend in display technology with a resolution that’s 4 times more detailed than Full HD 1080p. A Full HD screen displays a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (around 2 million pixels in total), while a 4K screen broadcasts a minimum of 3840 x 2160 pixels (around 8 million pixels in total). If that sounds impressive wait until you see it for yourself.

Why is 4K Ultra HD so amazing?

Here are a few reasons:

Better resolution

Since 4K generates a resolution 4 times better than Full HD, you get to enjoy much sharper, more detailed visuals.

High Dynamic Range (HDR)

One of the benefits of higher resolution is the ability to use HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology. This allows the screen to create greater contrast between light and dark images, resulting in more realistic images with accurate, vivid colours. It’s something you need to see to believe.

Wide Colour Gamut

Another great aspect of 4K technology is the ability to enjoy Wide Colour Gamut. This refers to greater colour saturation, so your eyes can be treated to richer, more vibrant, and more life-like colours.

High Frame Rate

4K Ultra HD isn’t just about the number of pixels. Many 4K TVs are capable of running higher frame rates (48-60 frames per second), which results in smoother motion so you can catch every split-section of the action.

Multi-dimensional Audio

For a truly immersive audio experience, pick up a 4K TV that’s compatible with one of the multi-dimensional audio standards (Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, or Auro-3D). It’s almost like 4K for your ears.

What kind of content can I watch on a 4K TV?

There’s a ton of 4K entertainment currently available, and a lot more is on the way. Here are a few examples:

  • Stream 4K video from online sources like Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, and others
  • Turn a regular 4K TV into a Smart 4K TV with a 4K set-top box
  • Watch 4K movies on 4K Blu-ray Discs using a 4K Blu-ray player
  • Enjoy TV shows, sports, and local programs through a 4K cable box
  • Create your own stunning 4K videos with a cutting-edge camera, camcorder, action cam, drone, or smartphone
  • Upscale Full HD 1080p content to near-4K quality, which makes your current collection of movies and TV shows look better than ever
What is "4K upscaling"?

Upscaling refers to a technology that boosts Full HD 1080p resolution to near-4K quality. TVs equipped with this feature can make Full HD content like movies, TV shows, and sports look better than ever so you’ll never run out of amazing stuff to enjoy.

What equipment do I need to enjoy 4K?

Start with a 4K Ultra HD TV and a compatible HDMI 2.0 cable. Then choose your content sources, like a 4K Blu-ray player, a 4K set-top box, or a 4K action camera. The possibilities are nearly endless.
