LG announces Netflix 4K streaming app on 12 new UHD models | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


The two companies have agreed on a partnership which will offer Netflix’s coming 4K streaming service on 12 of LG’s latest UHD TVs.


The new TVs are primed and ready for optimal 4K streaming thanks to the inclusion of the latest HEVC compression codec, H.265, as well as HDMI 2.0, which allows them to stream at 60 fps.


The app is designed to run on LG’s spanking new webOS smart platform, and LG has touted the combination of all factors will provide an experience which it says will “…change the way consumers enjoy television.”

Frame Rating: High End GPUs Benchmarked at 4K Resolutions

Frame Rating: High End GPUs Benchmarked at 4K Resolutions | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

Both NVIDIA and AMD current generation graphics cards support output to this TV at 3840x2160 using an HDMI cable. 

 

You might be surprised to find that HDMI 1.4 can support 4K resolutions, but it can do so only at 30 Hz (60 Hz 4K TVs won't be available until 2014 most likely), half the refresh rate of most TVs and monitors at 60 Hz. 

 

That doesn't mean we are limited to 30 FPS of performance though, far from it. 

 

As you'll see in our testing on the coming pages we were able to push out much higher frame rates using some very high end graphics solutions.

Todays GPUs wont be able to handle it. as the afforadable GPU £100 - £200 wont be. but newer GPUs that are costing over £250 plus that have high Vram will have a more stable framerate because they are designed for 4K and have more video memeory to support. from what i see 1080p is needing atleast with 2GB of VRAM but 4k is 4 times as large the recomendation will be 8GB and not even ultra high end GPU's have that amount! the high amount is 6GB but have been tested on 4K and runs fine. but i still feel there is more to a clomplish before 4K becomes cheaper for the public to use.
