This side-by-side comparison video of 4K HDR Ultra HD and Blu-Ray doesn’t show the true technological difference between the two (because things get lost in translation when it ends up as a video on YouTube) but it does illustrate how there is a visual difference between the two that go beyond just more resolution. 4K…
Drones are great for filmmaking—unless you want footage that looks better than film. The best cinema-grade cameras are basically just too damn heavy to fly. The Phantom Flex4k high-speed digital camera, for instance, weighs almost 15 pounds. But that didn’t stop the drone hackers at Brain Farm from taking it airborne.
Today, Vimeo is launching 4K video support—sort of. Pro subscribers will now be able to offer 4K downloads of their videos. (They have to be 4K videos to begin with, duh.) 4K streaming is "in the works," according to Vimeo, but there are no concrete plans to launch a streaming option at this time.
The march of progress moves to the beat of early adopters patting their wallets and chanting, "shut up and take my money." Unfortunately, LG's latest high-end offering can't seem to keep up with its price tag.
Holy shit, giant TV.
LG has just revealed its new flagship curved
OLED LCD screen—the largest one in existence—ahead of next January's CES convention. Because why wouldn't you you want 105 inches of curved UltraHD goodness? Oh right, you can't afford it.
Scream overkill all you want. The fact of the matter is that, whether you like it or not, hyper-realistic, ultra definition, get-as-close-to-being-in-the-action-as-you-possibly-can 4K TV is here to stay. So it's no wonder that—just like everything else in life—it's already being used for porn.
The biggest problem with all the big fancy UltraHD televisions practically every major manufacturer has released over the last year is that there's practically no 4K content out there. Thanks to Sony's new Video Unlimited 4K service, now there are 70 films you can rent or download.
The painfully-expensive yet admittedly awesome 55-inch curved OLED TV from Samsung is finally available to the public for $9,000—a full $6,000 less than previously thought. This curving, technological marvel, dubbed the Samsung KN55S9C, is supposed to offer a more "life-like viewing [experience]," which seems to come…
TCL just announced a new 50-inch Ultra HD LED television for $1000. Holy wow, that is freaking cheap. Just a few months ago, we were blown away by Seiki's 50-inch 4K that cost $1500. How the hell are they making all of these beautiful, high-resolution panels so cheap?
ESPN will kill ESPN 3D by the end of the year. The ill-fated 3D sports channel that started as an experiment in 2010 won't be broadcast in any dimensions soon. This is huge news considering the significant investment that TV manufacturers and broadcasters have put forth in an effort to bolster the struggling tech.
The shrinkification of technology is as inevitable as death and taxes, but we still can't help but be excited to see that Japan's NHK, working with a company called Astrodesign, has managed to shrink an 8K-capable camera into this relatively compact package. Compared to the HD-capable smartphone in your pocket it's…
Yesterday, Chinese OEM Seiki officially priced its 50-inch Ultra HD TV at $1500, making it the cheapest 4K television in the history of absurd resolution. It's cheaper even than the last round of super-cheap Chinese 4Ks we saw. The price is so low, in fact, and the brand name is so unfamiliar, that you have to wonder…
The $25,000 pricetag attached to Sony's 84-inch UltraHD set—the one that's been haunting your dreams since CES—may put that super-sized set out of your financial reach but that doesn't mean everything 4K is prohibitively expensive. In fact, Sony's new 55- and 65-inch sets are downright inexpensive (by comparison)…
Need a four-minute vacation? Sit back and enjoy this beautiful aerial footage of one of America's most photogenic metropolitan areas.
CES 2013: The year Ultra HD turned into the pipe dream of the future to the present reality you can't afford. Now that UHD TVs are about to hit the market, manufacturers are, of course, showing off 4K concepts like this glasses-free 3D 4K panel from Stream TV Networks, which you will be able to drool and dream about…
Samsung and Netflix have been working together on a 4K video solution for the Ultra HD world we're entering. I just saw a demo of some of the 4K streaming content, and it's horrifying. They're going to have to work harder to not suck the life out of the video.
