THE 4K PROPOSITION
Before we move forward with curved TVs, let’s take a quick step back and study the 4K proposition and how a curved display can build upon a 4K (3,840 × 2,160 pixels) TV’s advantages.
Whether you realize it or not, the limits of 2K resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) or full HD are starting to show these days. As TVs get progressively cheaper and more people jump on the large screen bandwagon, the current sweet spot are TVs that are sized between 50 to 60-inches. As you progress towards screens larger than this size range, individual pixels are easily visible and this dents the viewing experience even on a full HD screen.
4K displays solves this by quadrupling the number of pixels required to be rendered on the screen, which is a straight up solution. So, why should you consider a curved 4K TV?
On the left is 1080p content shown as-is, while on the right you see the same content that’s upscaled to 4K resolution.
