4K Ultra HD TV
Tomorrow’s cinema experience is here.
Ultra high definition (UHD) TV, also known as 4K TV, represents the next big advancement in the home cinema experience. With 4x (or more) the resolution of current HDTV’s 1080p resolution, 4K TV screens offer a completely new level of image clarity – three times greater than the improvement from standard definition (SD) to high definition (HD). 4K TV’s wider palate of colors and faster frame rates mean viewers can enjoy more vivid color and more thrilling action.
Industry experts laud 4K TV as a revelation in viewing experience, and forward-thinking cinemaphiles who are looking to invest in tomorrow’s home theater technology would do well to go 4K.

What are 4K TV and ultra high definition TV?
The term “4K” originally comes from the 4K digital cinema standard, which is what 4K TV is modeled after. While movie theaters use this native 4096 x 2160 4K resolution, new consumer flat panel 4K TVs are technically ultra high definition, coming in with a slightly lower resolution, at 3840 x 2160. In other words: in the consumer market, 4K and Ultra HD (UHD) TV refer to the same technology, which mimics cinema-quality resolution.
Notably, UHD TV not only offers more pixels, but better pixels, displaying more brightness and color than standard HD TVs.
sourcing 4K TV movies and shows
4K movies and television episodes are considerably larger files than regular HD or SD, so media companies are in the beginning stages of rolling out 4K content on platforms like Netflix, Amazon and Sony’s FMP-X1 media player. 4K content is poised to flood the market.
The relatively small pool of 4K content currently available only indicates how new 4K technology is, and the scales are tipping in favor of 4K content quickly.
