4k Televisions Explained
The next wave of televisions have hit, and they are gaining a lot of talk at trade and technology shows across the world. This innovative design is called a 4k television.
So what is a 4k television? Simply put, 4k is a technology that provides picture quality which is far superior to the high definition televisions currently found in many homes across the globe.
By utilizing 4,000 pixels across the horizontal axis, these televisions offer a visual quality that immerses users in the shows they are watching. The clarity of this technology is almost lifelike, but it is also very different than the gimmicky effects offered in 3D television sets, making it the most superior television on the market today. The innovations in quality are particularly noticeable when this technology is paired with very large screen televisions, such as the 84-inch t.v.s being offered by many of the biggest manufacturers who are set to offer 4k. (Note: See the difference between 4k UHD TV and HD TV here).
While this technology is superior to everything else currently on the market, there are some drawbacks. First, 4k is new to the market, and like most new technology, it comes with a high price tag. Current 4k sets sell for upwards of $40,000, making them out or reach for most consumers. Second, 4k programming is not as readily available as television manufacturers would like. 4K must be shot by special cameras, and delivering it over the Internet requires 100 GB or space or more, making it difficult for most consumers to bring broadcasting that is offered into their homes. Still, the price tag and availability of 4k are likely to come down as consumer demand increases, meaning this technology is a very viable choice for the very near future.
4k televisions offer exceptional quality that is currently unmatched in the marketplace. With time, they are likely to become the most popular piece of media equipment in homes across the globe.
