Join our mailing list: Last week we bought a Samsung 4K UHD television and after reading your article I now understand more about what I really bought and what is producing this impressive quality. Because every 4K frame contains four times the information of HD, 4K content is four times more bulky than regular HD content in terms of its raw file size.
HDR Formats: More importantly, at that same distance, your eyeballs won't be able to squeeze any more detail out of a 4K image than a 1080 one. There are many reasons why 4K should make you rethink your next TV purchase actually, there are eleven and you can read about them here , not all of them immediately obvious. What lies beyond 4K?

They would look at you funny. Don't have an account? Usually you will be save the image either as a TIFF file, which can have compression or none at all, or as a JPEG file, which will always have compression. The ultimate result of this increased pixel breakdown is a an image clarity that goes well beyond conventional 1080 pixel HD resolution and presents more vibrant, varied and realistic colors as well as much higher frame rates.
TCL and Vizio make some of the cheapest 4K screens on the market if you're looking to stay under budget, while Sony, LG and Samsung have some truly outstanding mid- and high-end screens. Normally we represent resolution in two numbers.
More acronyms! More pixels means more information. Steps are being made to get 4K content into broadcast television. If 4K is four times greater than 1080p, does that mean 4K is 4320p?
The standard channels that we see on TV support this type of resolution.
