4K is the latest and most advanced in high definition video, utilizing displays with an aspect ratio of at least 16:9 and capable of showcasing video at a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels or 8.3 million pixels–that’s four times the number of pixels as standard full HD. 4K means customers can enjoy their favorite movies and TV shows with unprecedented picture clarity–details are sharper with smoother lines so that even up-close images seem clearer and more realistic.
“At Comcast, we continue to look for innovative ways to offer our subscribers the most high-quality choices. We will continue to push the boundaries of high-definition technology to deliver the best possible experience to our viewers; 4K UHD is no different,” said Matt Strauss, SVP and GM of video services for Comcast Cable, in a statement. “This partnership with Samsung is one way our customers can stream shows and movies in 4K UHD, offering subscribers a glimpse of the television viewing experience of the future. Later this year, our new X1 set-top boxes will deliver 4K UHD content to all 4K UHD capable televisions.”
Netflix has said the second season of its popular political drama “House of Cards” was shot and will be available in ultra high-def, becoming one of the first major TV series to take advantage of the technology.
“There are a number of elements that need to work together to create a true 4K experience for customers,” Bill Carr, Amazon vice president of digital video and music, said in a statement.
“You need great content and compatible devices, but you also need a service that can deliver that content to your devices so that it plays beautifully.”
Earlier Monday, Amazon streaming rival Netflix showed up at LG’s press conference to announce a partnership with Samsung’s smaller Korean rival. Netflix, which is working with a number of electronics makers on the technology, has said its flagship original series, “House of Cards,” would be filmed and offered in 4K this year.
