What's the difference between 4k and UHD?

CIE's free online Audio Visual training channel catches up with Atlona Training Director Ken Eagle to talk 4K and ultra high definition video.

CIE's HowToAV team talks to Atlona Training Director - Ken Eagle - to discuss whether 4k and UHD (or Ultra High Definition) video content are the same thing - or different.

Ken explains how UHD provides a 16:9 format for ultra high definition content (in order to fit standard screen / TV formats) as opposed to 4k which is 17:9 - the format for cinema screens.

CIE stocks a complete range of 4k UHD compliant AV distribution products from technoogy leaders CYP. Call the team on T. 0115 9770075 for technical support or for product/system advice.
