The Myth of 4K Ultra HD TV Superiority: Why A Cheap TV with More Pixels is Still Just a Cheap TV

The Myth of 4K Ultra HD TV Superiority: Why A Cheap TV with More Pixels is Still Just a Cheap TV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Until 4K Ultra HD content becomes more widely available, and unless you need a giant screen where the extra pixels are necessary, our recommendation is to stick with regular old 1080p HDTV.  


There are a lot more choices, including both LED/LCD and plasma TVs, a better selection of features, and pricing that won't break the bank.

Vector Based Video and Death of The Pixel Within 5 Years

Vector Based Video and Death of The Pixel Within 5 Years | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

Digital pictures are built from a rectangular grid of coloured cells, or pixels. The smaller and closer the pixels are together, the better the quality of the image.

 

 

Pixel-based movies need huge amounts of data and have to be compressed, losing quality. They are also difficult and time consuming to process.

The alternative, a vector-based format, presents the image using contoured colours.

 

Until now there has not been a way to choose and fill between the contours at professional quality.

 

The Bath team has finally solved these problems.
