If you gawp at amazement every time you happen to watch a full 1080p HD film or TV series through online streaming, you will probably have wondered exactly what will replace it and how any image could really be that much better. If you think back to the 1970’s video recording was a major step forward for production companies in the TV industry, and further down the line the VHS (a consumer level tape format) won the war of format over Beta-max to become the world’s number one consumer video.
Flash forward to the 1990’s and the optical disc was introduced offering up a far higher video recording quality than that of the VHS. The DVD was the format which was standardized across industry and reined top dog in terms of quality until 2006, when two brand new formats called HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc steamed in to the media spotlight offering up seemingly amazing picture and video quality over DVD. Of these two consumer formats Blu-ray Disc eventually won the war and Blu-ray is still to date the very best format one can buy in order to watch video content from a disc.
Now however there is talk of 4K television soon to be appearing on the market, with TV’s which boast the support for an amazing 4,000 pixels. The truth though is that within the computer and cinema industry 4K has been an industry standard for years, and as such from a consumer perspective this emerging technology is actually a little bit late to the ball.
