Is there an upper limit? What’s the point of an Ultra High-Definition (UHD) screen? Why the name “ultra” (as in “UHD”) anyway? Why the “Ultra-?” Is video an industry, or should it be called “High-Definition”? Which type of high-resolution screen should we be looking at? How much more than 4K? What do these terms really mean?
Now in this edition of Video Magazine, we talk about all this and more from the world of technology. We cover a wide range of topics including the new-generation displays, how our brains interpret video, why 4K is so popular today, and more.
