Everything you need to know about 4K Ultra HD

4K Ultra HD TV sets have already made their mark in the market. Nowadays, most of the larger screen televisions come with 4K resolution. Though we all have heard the term 4K, many of us are still not accustomed to the tech buzzwords and jargon that come with the 4K concept. Moreover, while buying a 4K Ultra HD TV set, you will come across various brands, offering different features at different price rates. The average 4K Mi TV price starts from around INR 25,000 to INR 30,000.

What is 4K Ultra HD?

A 4K Ultra HD display offers a resolution, which is four times greater than a full HD display. A 4K resolution comprises no less than 8 million active pixels. It comes with a standard resolution of 3840 X 2160 pixels.  On the other hand, a full HD screen consists of 1920 X 1080 pixels. The average full HD Mi TV price starts from around INR 15,000.

So, what is the advantage of such higher pixels? In a particular space, where a full HD resolution holds a single pixel, a 4K TV of the same size fits four pixels and each pixel is four times smaller. Therefore, a single pixel of full HD TV is broken into four pixels in a 4K Ultra HD TV. As a result of this, the picture quality becomes better, clearer, sharper, and more detailed.

However, you will not find any difference between a full HD and a 4K Ultra HD on smaller TV sets. TV sets larger than 40-inch are a must to enjoy the 4K Ultra HD experience. The price of a 4K mi tv 43 inch is around INR 30,000. Moreover, to enjoy 4K quality pictures, you must watch 4K content. With so many OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and even YouTube, getting 4K content has become a lot easier than before.

What is the difference between 4K and UHD?

Generally, there is no such difference between the two at the consumer level. However, technically, there is a difference between 4K and Ultra HD (UHD). In the cinema industry, 4K resolution means 4096 X 2160 pixels. All the cinema halls and multiplexes use this resolution to show images. However, the TV sets that we use at home have a lower resolution of 3840 X 2160. This is generally known as UHD. Therefore, you will find many brands using Ultra HD or UHD labels instead of 4K. 

What is HDR?

While buying a 4K TV, you will come across a term called HDR, which stands for High Dynamic Range. Consumers often get confused and think that HDR and 4K are the same thing but in reality, they are different. An HDR is a type of content that offers a high dynamic range in color on the television screen.

Therefore, TVs having HDR can show images with a wider range of colors, with better brightness and contrast, darker shades of black, and brighter shades of white. Thus, we can say that 4K determines the number of pixels in the images whereas HDR is responsible for the light and color that each pixel can display.

Do all 4K TVs come with HDR?

A few years back, HDR was not an important feature on TV sets. However, with the intention to produce something better, HDR videos are now becoming more and more popular. Nowadays, almost all 4K TV sets come with HDR. It is still better to check for this feature while buying the TV. Sometimes, the older models or the lower-end models may miss out on this feature.

There are several types of HDR available in the market – Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log-Gamma, HDR10, and HDR10+. Among them, HDR10 can be found on most TVs, whereas HDR10+ and Dolby Vision are present on some premium models. Besides having an HDR TV, you must also need HDR content to enjoy this feature. A Mi TV price with HDR is around INR 28,000. 

How close should I sit to a 4K TV set?

Unlike an HD TV set, the closer you sit to your screen, the better image quality you will experience. In HD TV sets, you can enjoy the best image quality at the “retina distance” but in 4K TV sets, sitting at the “retina distance” will not allow you to notice any such differences. So, it is better to move your couch closer to the TV set.

What are the brands making the best 4K TVs?

With almost every brand producing 4K TV sets, it is now available at a much reasonable price. If you have a higher budget, then you can go for the top-end models of LG, Sony, or Samsung. On the other hand, if you are having a tight budget and still do not want to miss the luxury of a 4K TV, you can go for Mi. The mi tv price is comparatively lesser than the other brands, but it still offers all the important features just like the other brands. Moreover, if you want to enjoy the best visual experiences, you can buy an OLED or QLED TV set. 

With a decrease in the prices of 4K TV sets, buying one has become easier. To get further attractive offers and discounts, you can go to the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store.
