THE 4K PROPO­SI­TION

HWM (Singapore) - - Learn -

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.
