4K – Present or Future

By Tanmay Mehta 3mins Read April 24,2017

What is 4K Resolution?

4K, the term refers to 4000. But what exactly is 4000? Any electronic display comprises of horizontal and vertical lines. And the square formed by these lines is referred as ‘pixel’. 4K resolution consists of 3840 horizontal lines and 2160 vertical lines. The horizontal lines being close to the 4000 number, makes it define this resolution as 4K. Unlike Full HD resolution, which is 1920 horizontal lines and 1080 vertical lines, 4K gives more clarity due to more pixels developed by the lines.


4K Content

Sharper images, high brightness and 8.3million pixel delivery of content requires more and more better, faster and superior cameras. Gone are the days when these cameras were costly; they are much cheaper now. Also, most of the smart phones are making their cameras support 4K recordings. So, with the content becoming widely available on your palms, is your display 4K?


For all the smart TV, Firestick and Chromecast consumers, online media channels are currently the latest trend with wide range of 4K content. Netflix alone has content of more than 2000 hours displayed in 4K. Amazon prime, youtube, hotstar, etc are also not lagging too much behind, and will soon join the brigade of maximum 4K content.For the Satellite consumers, true 4K will be available in near future, as we are still progressing in Full HD resolution for all the channels. But 2 years should be the least time to get your Tata Sky 4K set top boxes.

The gaming industry too is ahead in the race of delivering 4K content. Most of the newly released games for Play Stations, Wii, Xbox are 4K compatible.

While the inventions in display industry are working actively on the 8K resolution, the gap of 4K content is still void and needs to be fully consumed by the users.
