4K TVs will Officially be Called UltraHD Displays

The consumer electronics association has decided on a new name for TVs with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. 4K TVs, as it was called, are now going to be officially called Ultra High-Definition TVs. The new standard formed by the CEA states that TVs must have an aspect ratio of 16:9 and have “…at least one digital input capable of carrying and presenting native 4K format video at 3840 x 2160 resolution without relying on upconverting.”

Keep in mind 4K is exactly four times the amount of pixels when compared to a 1080p (1920×1080) display. Also, recall at CES, LG had a 4K and Sharp had a massive 8K resolution TVs on display.
