Know About Ultra

HD TVs

Even though Ultra HD TVs seem all the rage right now, they are not really something totally new. UHD TVs have been around for a while. The first generation of Ultra HD sets were all LCDs having LED backlighting. An Ultra HD TV is a TV that has a resolution higher than that seen among HD TVs. That is, while Full HDs contain 1920 by 1080 pixels, Ultra HDs contain 3840 by 2160 pixels. That totals about 2 million pixels for the former, and 8 million pixels for the latter. As Ultra HD TVs contain an enormous number of pixels, even the finest details can be observed on their screen. For instance, you can notice even a fine hair strand or subtle cotton shirt texture. Ultra HD TVs are called 4K TVs, too, because 3840 and 4000 are quite close.

Ultra HD Picture Quality

The definition of Ultra HD may give you the impression that every UHD offers amazing picture quality. But, unfortunately, that is not true. There are many 4K TVs that offer mediocre images. Picture quality does not just depend on resolution; color reproduction, contrast, black sharpness, and brightness are some of the many other things that make a difference. The Ultra HDs that are the best in class offer greatness, and it is a delight to sit in front of them. Note that watching a movie, or a TV show, in an Ultra HD TV may not seem too different from watching the same thing on a HDTV if both of the TVs have a screen size of 65-inches, or lower. In order to appreciate the true power of UHD, you must sit far from your TV and depend on a set that is at least 84- inches big.

Ultra HD Content

At present, not many TV shows are broadcasted in 4K. Netflix’s ‘House of Cards’ is one that supports Ultra HD resolution. During the later part of this year, M-Go and Amazon are expected to offer Ultra HD content, too. There is a 4K Media Player offered by Sony, called the FMP-X1, that gives you access to 50 free UHD titles. You can download content on a pay-per-view basis, too. The player costs $500. Also, Samsung sells one hard drive for $300, which contains lots of UHD titles. Note that both the devices work with their respective brands only. By the next year, DirecTV is expected to offer 4K content. Also, Comcast is planning to provide on-demand 4K streaming. Of course, you can always play your own videos and photos recorded using a 4K camcorder. Blu-ray discs that offer 4K are not yet available, though. Having said that, Blu-ray movies seem to appear somewhat better on Ultra HD sets, as compared to on HD sets. That is because Ultra HD sets up-convert content to suit their resolution. The quality of up-conversion depends on the ability of a particular TV.

Ultra HD Cable

Cable does not seem to make a lot of difference when it comes to impacting Ultra HD picture quality. That means, even if you are suggested by a salesperson, there is absolutely no need to purchase a costly Ultra HD cable. Normal HDMI cables that are used with HD TVs work totally fine with UHD TVs.

Ultra HD Pricing

Ultra HD TVs are not cheap by any means. Even the cheapest Ultra HD TV is going to cost you nearly $2000 in most stores. If you want a big TV, expect to pay even more. For a set that has a size of 55-inches, you can expect to spend anything between $2000 and $4000. In case you want a 65-inches set, your expense will be between $3500 and $6000. If the territory of 70-inches and 85-inches appeals to you the most, be prepared to pay up to $10000! However, you can expect to see a dramatic decrease in pricing of Ultra HD sets after a few months. But, that does not mean that you should let your bargaining self get the best out you. For instance, do not get excited to purchase a leftover model of the previous year, even if your nearest store gives you a huge discount on it. If you want to enjoy 4K the way it is meant to be enjoyed, you should settle for nothing less than something latest.

Ultra HD vs. HD TV: Is

Ultra worth the extra

money?

Ultra high def TV are one of the most amazing innovations in TV viewing. The pictures are so like like you’ll think you’re in the picture. But are UHD TVs woth it? Is an Ultra HD TV a worthwhile splurge? That’s something many of us have been wondering lately, especially given the onslaught of Ultra HD TV (UHD TV) announcements coming from most of the major and several secondary brands. With four times the number of pixels (3840x2160) as regular 1080p (1920x1080) sets, Ultra HD TVs—also known as 4K TVs—promise to deliver picture detail beyond what we can get from conventional high-definition models, surely an enticing proposition. While there are still some issues related to Ultra HD TVs, mainly the lack of true 4K content that can show these sets to their best advantage, we've been wondering whether most people will be able to see a difference in the images displayed on these TVs. Since we have two Sony Ultra HD TVs—and Sony's 4K media player—in our labs, we decided to compare native 4K content displayed on a top- performing Ultra TV with the same program material on an HD Blu-ray disc connected to top-rated 1080p TVs. We also took a look at that same Blu-ray content when it was upconverted and displayed on a 4K set. Our goal was simple: to see if most people would benefit by getting an Ultra HD set, and whether there were noticeable picture- quality differences with an Ultra HD display. What we found may surprise you. Setting up the test We performed our Ultra HD and HD viewing on two Sony XBR-series Ultra HD TV sets: the 55-inch XBR-55X900A ($4,000), and the 65-inch XBR-65X900A ($5,500). These are Sony’s flagship models with excellent high-definition picture quality, very good sound, and a lot of features, including Sony’s smart TV Internet platform.
