When is 4K Coming?

Friday, July 11, 2014

The difference between full HD (1080p) and Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) is dramatic. When viewed from a distance or up close, you can see the difference.

Like a tsunami, we expect Ultra HD content to swell dramatically in the later half of this year. 35 mm celluloid are being converted into 4k masters. 4k (or 6k or 8k) cameras are proliferating and video artists are experimenting to create amazing commercial content. Plus, the PC graphics cards are getting more affordable, meaning running a desktop across a 4k display, showing digital photography, or running applications in Ultra HD is here today. Add to this the announcements around true 4k at 60 Hz media players for prices less than $500 and the world of possibilities is opening up fast!

Experiencing the immersion of pixel-free viewing is now possible on your desktop with Planar’s IX-Series or on the wall with Planar UltraRes, Planar EP 4k, and the full range of video wall technologies available from Planar.

The Planar® UltraRes™ 3D now supports 3D content played from a Bluray player using left and right eye frame packing. All Planar UltraRes 3D displays now come standard with this feature.
Worth noting: Planar UltraRes 3D does not support side-by-side or top and bottom frame packing and therefore, is not compatible with sources outputting 3D broadcast TV or gaming content.
