Pixels Matter, 4K TV will transform each and every aspect of your viewing experience… the force behind 4K technologies is transforming the TV market. Over the last several years the buzz about 4K TVs has continued to grow. Many people want a 4K TV but do not know why or even how to decipher between the good ones and the not so good ones.
Buying a 4K TV can be somewhat overwhelming when you consider the choices available today. What is more, is the amount of 4K TV manufactures that have entered the market each offering something different… only adding to confusion. In your pursuit to find the unique qualities about what a 4K TV can offer you, we offer some insight into the world of 4K technology and TV resolution.
TV Resolution 101:Pixels Matter
What is resolution and how does this affect the picture quality of a TV? Resolution is the number of pixels in each dimension a TV can display natively. The higher the resolution is on your TV, the more details you will have in picture quality.
High definition or HD and ultra high definition or UHD, OLED AKA organic light-emitting diode, 4K, and Ultra 4K are terms used to describe TV resolution. The visual resolution between what a 4K TV has to offer versus an HDTV is so significant you have to see a 4K TV for yourself to truly understand the impact 4K technology has made on picture quality.
To demonstrate the difference in the resolution of a 4K TV versus an HDTV we will explain the difference in pixels… HD: 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high versus 4K 3840 wide by 2160 high… The difference is not a small one!
When considering a new TV purchase you must remember a few key factors:
- 4K = more pixels, about 8 million more than HDTV.
- Cheaper means less or no upscaling capabilities resulting in lower picture quality.
- Refresh rate is still a factor!
- The refresh rate is the number of frames per second the TV can display.
- Refresh rate is expressed in Hertz (Hz).
- Other factors:
- Color Gamut.
- Contrast Ratio; trust your own eyes do not just look at the numbers!
- HDMI Connections: 4 HDMI ports should be standard on a good 4K TV.
- Ask about HDCP compatibility.
- Sound: Plan to add a sound bar for a true 4K TV speakers today are just too small to get the job done!
- Curved or not to be Curved… you have to be the one who selects this as it is a matter of choice.
- OLED, 4K, Ultra HD 4K… which one will you choose?
