4K is a remarkable technology and one which will completely change televisions in the future, however for the most part, its name [4K TV] is fairly boring and also not entirely clear as to what one really is. You’ll be pleased to know then that the Consumer Electronics Association has officially named 4K technology “Ultra High-Definition”, after a unanimous vote, so you can expect ‘UHDTV’ branding laced on to products of the future which support it.
The decision to change the name to ‘Ultra High-Definition’ was made in order to make 4K technology more understandable to the average consumer. After all, we all know what HD means, right?
For those not in the know, 4K TV has four times the definition as regular HDTV. It is a constantly developing technology and as soon as it becomes viable and cost-efficient enough to mass produce at a price point Mr. Smith can afford, Ultra High-Definition televisions will be coming to a store near you. At this point in time however these types of TV are simply prototypes showcased by technology companies to flaunt their display tech. Companies who have 4K televisions include LG, Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, and Toshiba.
Ultra High-Definiton TV’s show a level of detail you’d expect on a movie screen; their resolution equals that of professional cinema cameras, allowing for utterly stunning visuals for the viewer.
