Product of the Year, Awards 2013 – a second win for this brilliant movie machine.

Where Can You Get 4K Video?

Where Can You Get 4K Video? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


It really hasn't been that long since Blu-ray came out (in 2006), bringing to fruition the transition of television and home video content to 1080p HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels).

Now, as the calendar is about to change over to 2014, there comes another transition — to 2160p resolution (3840 x 2160), otherwise known as 4K or Ultra HD.

There are a few 4K televisions on the market now, but the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in January will feature many more 4K TV announcements (and while prices are still high, they continue to drop).

And 2014 will also be the year that actual 4K content becomes more widely available.
