Enjoy all your content in
It would be great if all recorded content were filmed in 4K, but there's still a lot of lower resolution content out there in comparison to 4K content. However, thankfully this is not a concern because of upscaling.
So what is 4K upscaling and what can it do for you?
When you watch lower-quality FHD content on a 4K TV, upscaling is the technology that increases its resolution, converts, and optimizes it to fit the display panel of a 4K TV. In other words, it doesn't just stretch the image — it upgrades it for the 4K display. Upscaling automatically analyzes resolution to reduce noise, improve details and provide optimum contrast and color so that you can view this content in 4K-like quality. And since every brand does upscaling differently, be sure to choose the one that does it the best.
What is 4K? What is UHD?
To put it simply, UHD stands for Ultra High Definition and 4K Resolution is a type of UHD resolution.
Different brands use various expressions to say the same thing, such as Ultra HD, 4K TV, Ultra High Definition TV and 4K UHD TV. As time passed, the TV industry found the phrase "4K" easier and more intuitive for consumers and began to use it more and more. Today most manufacturers and distributors now use the term 4K TV or 4K UHD TV. Recently, another type of UHD TV has begun to show up on the market: the 8K TV.

High-resolution TVs are something to consider when purchasing long replacement products like TVs. If you're going to buy a new TV, then do yourself a favor and choose a 4K TV.
