Advent of 4K

It is only recently been decided, 4K is being replaced with the term Ultra High Definition. Our next step up will be to 8K or also known as Super Hi Vision, but lets not go there just yet. UHDTV is 3840 pixels wide by 2160 pixels tall (8.29 megapixels), which is four times as many pixels as 1920 × 1080 (2.07 megapixels) for standard High Definition TVs outputting video in 1080p. What that means is the picture uses twice as many pixels(a box dedicated to a certain color and brightness). Does that mean it is twice as clear as 1080p? It may be. If the source such as 4K video was shot with a UHD camera. Next it has to be captured on a UHD Bluray . Then it needs to be played back on a UHD Bluray player using the right HDMI cable. If you already stopped reading, I dont blame you. Hopefully you will call or write me if you are about to make the jump to Ultra High Definition and wonder what you can do to get the best picture for your money and avoid issues with playback occurring at an alarming rate.
