4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) TVs are the hottest thing on the market today, so if you want your TV picture to be the best it can be, consider upgrading to this exciting new technology.
The 4K (4,000) part of the name refers to the number of rows of pixels in the picture. Previously, the best you could get was 1080. The 1,080 measures the image in rows of pixels high, and the 4K measures in rows of pixels wide, but the total number of pixels is four times greater with 4K. So 4K is 3840 x 2160, or 2160p. And what do more pixels mean? A better, clearer picture.
The new 4K Ultra HD screens bring more improvements than just resolution. Increased detail, greater contrast, deeper black levels, and a broader color gamut add to 4K TV’s stunning image quality.
Type of Screen
Once you’ve decided to get the best there is, you have to ask yourself: flat or curved screen? Almost everyone has some type of flat screen now, but the new curved screens are outselling the old flat ones every day. What’s better about a curved screen? Similar to the IMAX experience, the curved screen allows to almost be part of the image. It takes up most of your field of vision, including your peripheral vision, for a more engaging experience. And the improved technology keeps these images sharp at the edges, for a more realistic picture. This gives the viewer a heightened sense of depth, almost like a 3D image.
What About 4K Content?
Every content provider is currently working to get 4K programming into the home, and Netflix 4K is streaming now with compatible players like the Sony FMP-X10 4K Ultra HD Media Player. 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays are expected by the end of 2015.
You don’t need to wait for 4K content to enjoy a 4K TV. All the 1080p HD content that you enjoy now, from cable and satellite, to gaming and streaming, will look even better, ‘up-resed’, on a 4K TV. In fact your 1080p HD content will look far superior on the new 4K TV sets because of the increased resolution, color, contrast, and deeper black levels.
