What is 4K?
4K is one kind of resolution standard that has 1340 x 2160 pixels. It is also called Ultra High Definition or UHD, and today a large number of monitors come with this resolution on the screen. 4K resolution is used in both recordings as well as streaming. You may have noticed the resolution on YouTube as well.
There are small units known as pixels; you will see if you stand very close to your screen on display. In 4K, there are 3840 horizontal pixels, while the vertical pixels are 2160. Due to around four thousand horizontal pixels, it is called 4K.
What is the difference between SD, HD, and 4K?
Standard Definition (SD) has a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. 480i was once a standard resolution for television. But after the arrival of HD, 720 x 1280 pixels became commonplace. And then came Full HD with 1920 x 1080 pixels. Finally, 4k (UHD) that has 1340 x 2160 pixels is the latest standard. The high resolution takes more bandwidth.
Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) – when its height and width are increased by twice, you get 4K resolution. Higher resolution means your content quality looks sharp and will remain evergreen in years to come
If you have 4K television, but the content is not 4K, you do not get the best broadcasting. For this, you can record the 4K content on your mobile devices and watch it on TV. But for the recording, you should at least have a 12 MP camera.
4K content also costs more and takes up lots of bandwidth.
Should I upgrade to a 4K TV to watch the 4K Channel?
You do not necessarily need to buy a new TV to watch 4K Channel. If your TV does not support 4K, you can still view the channel in HD resolution. However, if you want to enjoy the 4K content, you can upgrade to 4K TV. But before buying, you may do proper research on the contents you would watch through 4K TV. As upgrading TV for just one single channel would not be thrifty.
