4K- The Home Media Evolution

Sony's 84-inch XBR-84X900, the world's first UHD(4K) TV available in Market

In 2006, we saw the launch of Blu-ray Disc, which provided Full-HD, 1920x1080 for home media. Now, after 6 years of Blu-ray, Sony has launched the world's first Ultra-HD TV, with a resolution of 3840x2160 for home media. The TV is said to feature 4 times more detail than 1080p, powerful cinematic sound totaling 50 watts, Immersive 3D, Motionflow™ XR960 technology, PC and tablet content on your TV with Intelligent Connect and Media Remote™ app to control your TV with a smartphone. It will have a 84-inch screen with 4K(3840x2160) Resolution. It costs $24,999.99.

Here is a video sample of 4K resolution(to see the video in 4K resolution, select the 'Original Resolution'):

4K resolution has been seen in television and movies now, but the thing that remains, are video games. What will the 4K resolution look like in video games is what all the gamers are wondering, but what we do know, is that it would be amazing. There is no specific 'disc' for 4K resolution media yet, so it is currently being distributed in USB drives and hard drives, but there sure will be a disc for the 4K resolution, and we are waiting to see what it will be. Whatever it will be, one thing is for sure, it is the evolution of home media.
