Trending Tech: Explaining Tech
From news in the morning to late night laughs, TV is still the distraction we love the most. So make it the most amazing viewing experience with the best picture quality available from 4K and UHD TVs.
What exactly is 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD) TV, and why will it change television as you know it? It’s simple, pixels. Lots of pixels. 2760 to be exact.
POWER IN PIXELS
Pixels are the tiny dots that make up the picture on a television screen. The more pixels, the better the picture. The best High-Definition sets use 1080p and you probably remember the sense of wonder you felt the first time you saw a screen with resolution that high. Now, imagine turning on your television and seeing 4X that resolution. 4K UHD screens are 2160 pixels high and 3840 wide. That is a huge improvement from the 1080p of standard HD. Those extra pixels mean you get:
- More detail,
- More contrast, and
- More colour resolution
That’s the power of pixels. That’s the magic of 4K UHD.
PROGRAMMED FOR THE FUTURE
While most television is still being delivered in HD resolution, the industry is taking notice and more programming is being developed to take advantage of the superior picture quality that 4K UHD delivers. More importantly, while the world rushes to catch up to you, your 4K television will continue to turn HD content into a life-like, immersive and game-changing experience.
Many 4K TVs also come equipped with Smart TV technology as well, which means that your TV is able to connect to your Internet. This extra feature allows you to access your favourite apps and content all in one place. For further information about Smart TVs, see here.
WHY BUY 4K UHD?
- Sports, and more sports: No matter which pastime you cheer for, watching your favourite team on 4K UHD will be about as close to the action as you can get without actually being there.
- Movie and TV shows: Enjoy the cinematic feel without needing to reserve your seat.
- Gaming will never be the same: If you love gaming, you’ll love the image quality of 4K UHD. (Shop for systems and games).
- Your photography has never looked this good: A 4K UHD TV with JPEG playback will provide four times the picture information. So not only will your shots from Niagara Falls capture the magnificence of nature’s natural wonder, they’ll capture the people smiling at it. (See the 75-inch model)
- 4K UHD Internet browsing might be why the Internet was invented: From streaming content to maps and apps, the 4K UHD Internet experience is nothing short of mind-blowing.
- Diversity in size: 4K UHD TVs are huge and don’t get us wrong, we love it, but they’re getting smaller. And that’s a good thing since not everyone can accommodate a 75-inch TV. (See the 43-inch model)
- 4K UHD Blu–Ray: Play your movies and games on a system designed for 4K UHD. (Shop for Blu-Ray players)
