4K Ultra High Definition

4K is the future of high-definition (HD) video. The generally accepted definition of HD video is a minimum resolution of 1000 pixels. 4K, as the name suggests, has a resolution four times that of HD content. As the year progresses, we will see an increasing number of 4K TVs in the market. At CES 2013, many companies gave a preview of their products.

LG, Toshiba, Vizio, Westinghouse and ViewSonic are among the companies to launch their 4K TVs. While 4K video content is not yet mainstream, users can expect ultra HD content to be in markets soon. Of these manufacturers, Toshiba and LG are expected to bring their products to India. Toshiba did not announce the price of its TV sets, while LG said its 84-inch 4K LED TV will cost $19,990 (approximately Rs 11 lakh).
