If you’re sitting there thinking that all these new technologies and acronyms sound puzzling then you’d be right. By the way UHD stand for Ultra High Definition. A group of companies decided to form the UHD Alliance with the expressed aim of defining what technologies should be included in the next generation of TV sets.
The UHD Alliance is comprised of 35 companies including television manufacturers such as LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba, Sony, Sharp, audio companies such as Dolby, and film and television production companies such as Netflix and 20th Century Fox.
The idea then is that if everyone can agree on what features they think UHD should include then Disney (an example member of the alliance) can produce a movie that Netflix will be able to stream through a Samsung TV, and the eventual image will be exactly what the director at Disney intended.
So if you want to take advantage your sharp picture on your TV you should use it to watch your videos which you can make with one of our action cameras, such as EOV1 Plus, 4.0 Plus dual screen or 4.0. so you can see all our cameras support the UHD video recording.
Currently, in order to adhere to the UHD Premium specification a product must have:
A resolution of at least 3840×2160
10-bit color depth, allowing for 1,024 shades of each of the three primary colors red, green and blue, as opposed to the 256 allowed by the current 8-bit standard.
Be capable of displaying pixels at a certain brightness and darkness for HDR purposes (technically this light level is from 0.05 to 1,000 ‘nits’ for LEDs and 0.0005 to 540 ‘nits’ for OLED sets. Following these standards means blacks should look truly dark as opposed to just milky black and whites should really pop.
Now that this standard has been defined it should just be a case of checking that your next purchase has the ‘Ultra HD Premium’ logo and not having to worry about your set being incompatible with the slew of 4K content that’s about to emerge over the next few years aand which you can make with you action camera which you can buy HERE.
