4K is the latest TV resolution technology to be made available in the consumer space. It refers to any screen that has a 4,000 pixels horizontal resolution and 2,000 pixels vertical resolution.
This resolution is about four times better than today’s standard 1080p Full HD technology.
Such resolution makes images more clear and sharp when compared to more conventional technologies.
The technology was originally patented by Sony back in 2003 and it is expected to become a standard technology in 2017.
