Now that prices are dropping, almost everyone has bought or is considering a new 4K TV. Most of us have seen mind-bending 4K images in a store, but there’s a huge problem: just because you invest in this new technology doesn’t mean you’ll be able to reproduce that experience at home. In other words, just because your TV says 4K doesn’t mean you’ll get the full effect of the new 4K Ultra HD TV system.
4K Ultra HD TV system
A 4K Ultra HD TV system is one of the most sophisticated and advanced television systems available today. This high-definition technology offers superior picture quality, allowing a more immersive viewing experience with greater depth and clarity. With four times the resolution of regular HD, 4K Ultra HD takes your home entertainment to a whole new level.
This cutting-edge technology processes images with around 8 million active pixels in each frame – over 16 times the amount used in Full High Definition TVs. The result is an incredibly detailed and realistic picture that brings movies, games, and sports events to life like never before. Also, 4K Ultra HD offers higher contrast ratios than traditional HD displays, enhancing its vibrant color palette.
The fantastic news is that there is a lot of quality 4K content! You have to know how to ensure that you’ll be able to experience it in your home. The bad news is that cable, satellite, and antenna TV are NOT how you get the 4K experience at home.
There are only a few ways to get a full 4K video to appear on your TV. The best way is to have all 4K content stored on a device connected directly to your TV. The alternative is to have enough speed on your network and internet service to stream the content from the outside world.
The first option is the least challenging—go out and buy a new 4K UHD Blu-ray player and some 4K UHD Blu-ray discs. Sounds simple right? It is, but as always, there are lots of caveats. The biggest ones are that content is still relatively limited, and only a few players are available.
That being said, if you are a movie buff and want to be an early adopter, you have some excellent options. There are some great new movies out there in Ultra-HD on Blu-ray like “The Revenant,” “The Martian,” “Life of Pi” and “The Lego Movie.” Yes, Legos have their own movie, and it’s a great movie too.
I know what you’re thinking: not enough variety in content, and it is the same movies you probably saw at the theater, etc. That leaves the second option—streaming content from the internet—which is its challenge.
So, where can you find a whole world of variety out there? Believe it or not, from YouTube. We obtain a lot of the content you see in our store there. We also create some quality content ourselves and post it there. Our website has links to YouTube videos in 4K from some of the projects we have been involved in and some exciting events.
If you are a home video buff, check out the GoPro website for some fantastic 4K videos. The little GoPro camera has been 4K capable for years. There are thousands of unbelievable videos of people jumping off mountains, snowboarding, sky diving, and racing cars, boats, motorcycles, and airplanes. Or, go out and buy one and start making incredible videos yourself.
The disclaimer in all of this is that there are lots of technical challenges that must be overcome to get the whole UHD experience, and that is why you should contact us at DJS Inc. to ensure that your display, cables, players, cameras, network equipment, and internet service provider are all delivering a full 4K capable experience. But I can tell you that when you do, it will be so worth it!
The 4K experience at home is worth investing in for those who want the most immersive, lifelike viewing experience. The high picture quality, impressive audio capabilities, and wide variety of content make it one of the best ways to watch movies, TV shows, and more. Not only is 4K a great way to elevate your home theater setup, but it’s also an affordable option that doesn’t break the bank.
