4K media is on its way – we've all seen those gorgeous displays that feel like you're looking through a window, but do you know the ins and outs of what makes 4K tick and why you should consider taking the step up?
What does 4K mean?
With TVs and Displays getting bigger and bigger, what started out as a modest 32" display almost a decade ago has been dwarfed by far more typical 50–60"screens that look amazing in our living room. But while the size of the screen we're watching at home has increased, what hasn't increased is the resolution.
You would think that the larger an image, the more detail you could get into it – and typically you'd be right. However when you're buying your DVDs or Blu-rays, the image that they display to your 32" or 60" is at best, a 1080p resolution. Why is why the first wave of 4K technology that we've seen has been in TVs and displays.
