The Next Big Thing: 4K Ultra HD

The Next Big Thing: 4K Ultra HD | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


We are on the verge of another major jump in resolution, and the next big thing is 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160).


Once you go 4K, you won’t want to go back. 4K displays have four times the number of pixels as 1080p brethren and provide superior image clarity by packing more than 8 million pixels.


If you’re using a 4K display now, check out the clear difference in visual quality by adjusting the resolution on a few 4K YouTube videos.

4K TV comes to the Winter Olympics, but you won't be able to watch it

4K TV comes to the Winter Olympics, but you won't be able to watch it | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Over the last couple of months murmurings swirled that electronics companies and TV networks were teaming up to record and show the Sochi Olympics in 4K.

After a bit of digging, TechRadar learned that the Olympics would indeed be shot in 4K and even 8K.

However, these UHD Olympic takes won't be viewable to the general public save for those visiting NHK-sponsored public viewings in Japan.

Otherwise, most of the footage will only be shown at special press viewing parties and other private events, making Sochi's 4K a more closed-off affair than the Super Hi-Vision (SHV) cinemas hosted by the BBC for the 2012 London Games.

Your next TV Will it be Ultra HD

Your next TV Will it be Ultra HD | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


After attempts to hawk 3-D and OLED TVs fizzled in recent years, television manufacturers are taking small steps toward making a new technology, Ultra HD, more viable for mainstream consumers.

It's the first TV format to be driven by the Internet video-streaming phenomenon, and at the International CES gadget show this week, major streaming players Netflix and Amazon said they'll offer movies and TV shows in the format, and Sharp introduced a relatively inexpensive TV with near-Ultra HD quality.

The moves are meant to coax consumers to pedal faster on their TV upgrade cycles.

At the moment, most Americans buy new TVs about once every seven years. TV manufacturers would love to create another wave of buying like the one that sent millions of people to stores a few years ago to upgrade from standard definition, tube TVs to flat-screen HD models.
