With four times the definition of “normal” high-definition televisions, your eyes will really thank you for choosing 4K.
The Technical Details
4K TVs – also known as Ultra-HD, UHD and 4K Ultra HD – are TVs capable of showing images with resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 pixels. This is four times the number of pixels in a “Full HD’ 1080p television. In short, more pixels mean more detail.
Watching a 4K television at full-resolution (you’ll need a 4K input) really is a thing of beauty. Sumptuous details with stunning colours combine to create a depth that is almost three-dimensional. The difference in quality between 1080p and 4K is instantly recognisable. Imagine looking a picture and then gradually adding more and more detail to it, until you finally ended up with four times the detail.
But remember, to really push your new 4K TV you’ll need 4K content – for a more inclusive look, we’ve answered a few commonly asked questions in our recent blog post, FAQs About 4K TVs. Additionally, our Spotlight on 4K TVs blog takes a closer look at how exactly the innovative technology works.
What Can I Watch on my 4K TV?
Here’s where you can find 4K content to enjoy:
Blu-Ray: More and more movies are being released on 4K Blu-Ray. You’ll need a 4K Blu-Ray player and 4K movies but once you have all that, you can enjoy mesmerising picture quality from enhanced content that will really push your television to produce its best.
4K Internet Video Streaming: There is a wealth of content now hitting the market with fresh content being added all the time.
