4k tv

 

I am in love with movies, and the beauty of 4k tv Blu ray UHD format movies are basically as if you are in the modern theaters in your very own home.
So I have created this site for avid movie watchers such as myself to provide 4K specific information, and reviews on technology and movies. All in one place and based on the experience of 4K offered by the tech and movies.

 

So what you would need in order to enjoy the pleasures of 4K Blu ray movies at home?

 

  • 4K Tv set (Ultra HD)
  • 4k Blu ray player (Ultra HD)
  • 4k Movie discs (Ultra HD)
  • HDMI Cable

 

Welcome folks the the next step in television. 4K, now we started with standard definition, then moved on to high-definition TV now we are at 4K TV. Basically this new viewing technology has the pixel count of about 4 FHD 1080p screens in a 2 X 2 grid. So the detail capabilities are tremendous. This means that viewing is son realistic even on larger screens.

In our opinion we don’t see much downsides to this tech beside the lack of content out there (we foresee a big change in this soon). However Amazon has got quite a growing range of 4K products and content. In addition the website outlines movie reviews that will be great viewing on 4K TV sets and players.

Now gone are the days were you would spend an arm and a leg to get new tech TV sets. Due to the technology improvements, prices for 4k sets are quite reasonable and different types are available to suit your budget.

 

The Difference between 4K and UHD

4K is common term. However some manufacturers are are calling it Ultra HD better known as UHD. But there is a difference between the two. 4K is 4,096 x 2160 resolution introduced in digital movie theaters initially. UHD is 3,840 x 2,160 resolution you’ll find in 16:9 ratio TVs.

 

 

So What is 4k tv?

Well, simply it is a clearer more detailed picture. 8,294,400 pixels on the screen at once creates an unmatched realistic viewing experience. More detailed then any viewing tech to date.

The resolution of 4K is 3840 X 2160 as compared to full HD which is 1920 X 1080 resolution. Basically lets look at a TV as a grid FHD sets have 1920 columns wide and 1080 rows high. Now a 4K TV set has four times that. Hence sharper images, better detail, greater viewing experience. In case you wondering they call it 4K due to the width been almost 4000.

 

So why should I buy a 4K TV set?

 

  • More and more 4K UHD blu ray releases and content are been produced each day, so you will be setting yourself up for the future.
  • 4K TV sets make today’s UHD look even better while watching.
  • 4K gaming consoles are coming out such as the new PS4.
  • Browsing the web with a 4K monitor is unbelievable.
  • Reasonable prices.
