4K is the next development in the world of electronic displays, offering over 4 times the resolution/detail of standard HD TV.
Screen sizes have got a lot bigger on average over the last several years, but viewing distances have generally not increased. There was a time when we thought that a 34″ (CRT) TV was massive, and when flatpanel displays came along, 42″ became the norm. These days 55-60″ is common for general living rooms, and there is a growing catalogue of even larger sizes from the big CE brands.
As screen sizes get bigger without changing resolution or viewing distance, the pixels too become relatively larger. There comes a tipping point where our own visual acuity may exceed the display’s pixel density, meaning an effective loss of perceived resolution.
Now give some thought to IMAX, which employs a massive screen and the audience sitting relatively close. Achieving this high-quality immersive experience is made possible with the use of a much larger film cell than is the case in a classic 35mm cinema. 4K delivers the same effect in the home, enabling larger screens with relatively close viewing distances.
There is another consideration, namely the marked increase in resolution of the other devices we typically use every day. 1080p was regarded as remarkable back in 2005 but is, after all, only 2 megapixels (1920 x 1080 = 2,073,600). Let’s face it, these days you would turn your nose up at a 2MP camera in a phone! By comparison, 4K offers a far more contemporary 8.3MP.
Nothing! They are two different ways to describe exactly the same thing ( resolution of 4096 x 2160p)
Dolby Atmos is the next generation of surround sound specification.
In simple terms, the difference between ‘conventional’ Dolby surround and Atmos; is the addition of in-ceiling or upward-firing speakers that allow sound to be placed anywhere in a 3D space within the room.
As Dolby say: ‘You’ll feel like you’re inside the action, in ways you’ve never before experienced.‘
