What is 4K Ultra HD?
Technically speaking, 4K refers to a digital cinema standard that calls for a 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution. This is double both the horizontal and vertical measurements of the 1920 x 1080 standard (1080p, AKA Full HD) that most of us use today, offering four times the overall pixel resolution. Now the arrival of 4K videos add the number of main resolution standards for use in the home into four: standard definition (480p/540p) , high definition (720p), full high definition (1080i/p) and ultra high definition (2160p). To end confusion and make it clearer, videos come in 4K resolutions look real on 4k video players.
By playing a 4K Ultra HD (UHD) video, we can see close-ups and minutiae, since the definition is far beyond what a human eye can tell, based on the resolving ability of the human eye (with 20/20 vision). But it is not easy to free play 4K UHD videos (generally, 4096×2160 or 3840×2160) on Mac OS/iMac/MacBook and Windows PC since a common video player has poor support for such super high definitions.
