Tech Term Tuesday: 4k

You’ve probably heard that Sony is broadcasting the World Cup in 4k, but what does that mean? 4k, according to the Tech Terms Computer Dictionary, is a display standard (for a TV or a computer monitor) that can support a horizontal resolution of about 4,000 pixels. The most common resolution for 4k-enabled televisions, often referred to as UHDTVs, is 3840 x 2160 pixels. For comparison, most high-definition televisions have a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Simply put, 4k televisions are twice as HD as HDTVs.

If you’re in the market for a UHDTV, you’re in luck! We just so happen to offer a number of UHDTVs on our very own Howard Store. Most of them are SmartTVs as well, and the Samsung models are compatible with the PixieTV app. Check out this image from Gizmodo‘s article about the app:
