When Will 4K Become Universal?

When Will 4K Become Universal? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

The first affordable 4K Ultra HD TVs here, but where is all the 4K content?

 

In 2017, that situation is starting to change, thanks to efforts by two major streaming companies – Netflix and Amazon – to offer more of their own content in glorious, streaming 4K.

 

And as prices start to come down even further for 4K TV sets, it’s conceivable that 4K could become universal even faster than you thought possible.

Atomos Shogun 4K recorder review - The good, the bad and the 4K

Atomos Shogun 4K recorder review - The good, the bad and the 4K | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

  

The Atomos Shogun was one of the most anticipated video products of 2014. The 4K external recorder was announced at the NAB show way back in April.

 

Units finally started to ship just before Christmas and it has been a long and patient wait for customers to get their hands on one.

 

Overall the Shogun ticks a lot of boxes and I think most users will be very happy with it.

 

At the end of the day the Shogun delivers what it promises – 4K recording on a budget, a great screen and easy to use interface.

 

 

Atomos Website:

www.atomos.com

 

Price: $1,995.00

It looks promising ... and what about a BlackMagic Hyperdeck with a screen for half the price of the Atomos?

Blackmagic's New URSA is a Serious 4K Production Camera

Blackmagic's New URSA is a Serious 4K Production Camera | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


The Blackmagic URSA was designed to be the beastly cinema camera that everyone wanted the 2.5K and 4K Blackmagic cameras to be.


After rigging them out for higher end productions, the other BMCC cameras became larger than the URSA.


As a result, Blackmagic took the key wishlist items and packaged them into a full size production camera with little compromise.


Notably, the body and components are built to be upgraded.


While the URSA is currently configured with a 4K sensor capable of delivering 60fps, the rest of the camera can handle up to an 8K sensor at 30fps.

To our surprise, not only did the curved model seem more immersive, it also had noticeably wider viewing angles.


The reason could be due to the curvature radius of 4200mm chosen by Samsung, which does seem like the ideal sweet spot.


So if you’re wondering if bendy tellies are ideal for the living room, the answer is a resounding yes.

Will 2015 Finally Be The Year For 4K? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

We all thought 2014 would finally be the year 4K took off in a big way. Did it? Well it stuttered, stumbled and never really got off the ground.

 

With YouTube and Vimeo offering various ways of uploading and downloading 4K material there is now a genuine reason to deliver in 4K.

 

2015 will no doubt see 4K take another step forward. Just how far forward it goes we will have to wait and see.

Does the world need curved TVs?

Does the world need curved TVs? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Back in 2013, we saw the first signs that curved screens might be the next "3D" as both Samsung and LG showed off curved OLED TV.


In 2014 we were once again presented with this trend as we joined CES 2014, now only in a much larger scale as Samsung launched curved LCD panels.

But what justifies these curved panels?


Have the TV manufacturers found a solution to a problem we didn't even know existed?


And if so, what is this mysterious problem that they are trying to fix?


Let's find out.

LG Display Zeroing in on 3D UHD TV Market

LG Display Zeroing in on 3D UHD TV Market | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


LG Display Co. proclaimed this year as the new “first year of 3D,” as it heralds a new era of Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV.


The TV giant vows to lead the global 3D market this year by focusing on China.


Ever since the first 3D TV rolled out in 2011, the company has enjoyed its status as a forerunner in 3D-related technology, but it hasn’t been able to capitalize on it owing to the stagnancy of the 3D TV market.


The company is aiming at reigniting 3D boom by using the popularity of UHD TV.

Why Netflix in Ultra HD will ruin TV

Why Netflix in Ultra HD will ruin TV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Netflix has ruined television forever.


Speaking as an unashamed hi-def snob who'd rather miss out on a show than have to watch it in grotty standard def, I've been champing at the bit to devour native 4K.

Unfortunately, having now been one of the first to watch Ultra HD streamed live from Netflix servers, my beloved Full HD just doesn't look that great any more.

The old acuity-meter has been irrevocably upgraded. Yes, 4K over the internet really is that good.

True. For now it's almost impossible to stream 4K to your TV. Were just not having fast enough internet to do that at this moment.

Mauro Tarantino's curator insight, April 11, 2014 4:07 AM

Netflix ha rovinato la televisione per sempre.

Parlando come uno  hi-def snob senza vergogna che preferisce perdere uno spettacolo piuttosto che vederlo in low - def, sto cercando di limitarmi nell'aggredire il il 4K nativo

Purtroppo, essendo ormai stato uno dei primi a guardare Ultra HD in streaming in tempo reale dai server di Netflix, il mio amato Full HD semplicemente non si può più guardare.

La vecchia metrica di definizione è stata definitivamente aggiornata.... Sì il 4K su internet è veramente fantastico.
