What is 4K?
4K is an up-and-coming video technology that promises a better quality picture when you’re watching movies or TV shows. 4K normally refers to a resolution that has 3,840 pixels along the horizontal line of the display, and 2,160 pixels vertically. The name 4K comes from the fact that there are roughly four thousand pixels on the horizontal side, which gives 4K four times as high a resolution as 1080p, which is what we normally mean today when we describe a screen as “Full HD”.
4K content is becoming popular but the desktop media player producers need to pick up the pace. Currently, there are only a few computer video players able to recognize 4K video files. For those who want to play 4K video on a Mac computer, a workable 4K Video Player for Mac is required.
