4K im­age is look­ing good…

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - First Test -

At the time of writ­ing, Sky’s Ul­tra HD ser­vice hadn’t yet gone live, but we did get to see some 4K con­tent at a spe­cial press brief­ing.

And the ini­tial signs are very promis­ing. The 4K clips we were shown con­sisted of movies, sport and nat­u­ral his­tory pro­gram­ming, and pic­ture qual­ity cer­tainly ap­pears to be an im­prove­ment on a nor­mal hi-def pic­ture.

In the open­ing for­est scene of The Revenant, ev­ery rip­ple and re­flec­tion on the water comes across as real and packed with de­tail.

Movies and foot­ball will be high on the list of go-to 4K con­tent, so we turn to sport, and the clar­ity of im­age seems very im­pres­sive with good mo­tion and bright punchy colours thrown into the mix. You can read a full 4K up­date on whathifi.com
