Part 1: What is 4K

4K resolution video has grown in popularity in recent years, more and more TVs started to feature 4K screen and the Ultra-HD 4K Blu-ray player and disc have been released in 2016. A lot of online video streaming service provider like NetFlix has started to stream 4K videos since a few years ago.

What is 4K and how exactly can it affect our movie watching experience?

According to Wikipedia, 4K resolution, also called 4K, refers to horizontal resolution on the order of 4000 pixels and vertical resolution on the order of 2000 pixels. Several 4K resolutions exist in the fields of digital television and digital cinematography. In the movie projection industry, Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) is the dominant 4K standard. In television and consumer media, 4K UHD or UHD-1 is the dominant 4K standard. By 2015, 4K television market share had increased greatly as prices fell dramatically during 2014 and 2015. By 2015, more than half of US households are expected to have a 4K-capable TV(2160p), which would be a much faster adoption rate than that of FullHD(1080P). There is no doubt that 4K is going to become the mainstream of video resolution.

The great thing about 4K is that when you play it in your home theater, you get better view experience than the regular 720p or 1080p.
