In home theatre, we use numbers like 5.1 and 7.1 to describe both our audio rigs and the way movies are encoded. It can get a little confusing, so let’s look closer at what these numbers mean for you and your home theatre.
There have been so many spectacular moments during the FIFA World Cup games. From van Persie’s amazing header, to Suarez’s two goals (and bite) to Howard’s stunning blocks and manoeuvres, the excitement has been non stop. If you were watching the games on a pint-sized TV you probably missed some of the stunning details and colour of these historical matches. Maybe it’s time to upgrade to one of the 4K Ultra HD TVs with their gloriously big screens offering the ultimate immersive viewing experience.
4K TVs are the best you can get when it comes to picture quality these days, offering four times the resolution of high-definition at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels versus 1,920 x 1,080. But with all of the hype surrounding them, one question that’s not as often discussed is how lower resolution content will look on these 4K/Ultra HD/UHD TVs. And it’s an important thing to consider since that’s what most of us are still watching.
