4K resolution, also called 4K, refers to a display device or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels. The 4K resolutions exist in the fields of digital television, digital cinematography. Streaming video from YouTube and Vimeo also allow the upload of content with 4K resolution.
Why record video with 4K resolution?
The main advantage of recording video at the 4K standard is the fine spatial detail, which contrasts with 2K resolution in which fine detail in hair is displayed poorly. If the final video quality is reduced to 2K from a 4K recording more detail is apparent than would have been achieved from a 2K recording. Increased fineness and contrast is then possible with output to DVD and Blu-ray.
With the standardization of H.265/HEVC codec, we will have the opportunity to keep in touch with more or more 4K content resources. In 2014, Netflix began stream streaming television series at 4K to compatible televisions. Amazon Studios also begin to shot full-length original series and new pilots with 4K resolution in 2014.
