The 4K is a technology name used to describe content or display devices with a resolution order of 4000 pixels. The 4K technology is rising day by day and trying to gain a foot in the mainstream industry. Who could have thought that the technology will gain so much popularity? Of course only a few. This cutting edge technology produces and displays quality content that is breathtaking to view. Projectors made using this technology are referred to as 4k projectors. They are ultra-high definition projectors with a resolution of 4096 x 2160. That kind of resolution is four times the resolution of 1080p projectors.
Their display is more lifelike and smoother than any of the best projectors today. What its display offers surpass anything that a modern HD projector can offer. It has more saturated colors and higher frame rates. Many people who have witnessed it working, say that “the experience is similar to looking through a window ”; although the view can even be many times better depending on the window used. Sounds great, right? You can buy one although there are only a few varieties to choose from.
· Distance – you should always check first how far away from the screen you will be sitting. The ideal distance when you are using a large display, is 5 to 10 meters. If you have a small display, you will have to sit almost a foot away to witness the result which is almost impossible.
· Screen size – you should consider the size of your display area that you will be using. If the display is large (around a 100 inches) and the distance between the display and you is small then you will notice, experience and enjoy the 4K technology benefits.
· Speed and technology – speed and technology only becomes an item of concern if you want to stream 4K content. Why is it a problem? To stream this type of content, you will require a minimum constant bandwidth of 14Mbs which is not easily accessible. If you are using a slow cable network, you will have to upgrade it before accessing those services
· Cost – since this is a new technological advancement the cost of these projectors is still very high. As of December 2014, only few projectors (around two), for example, Sony VPL VW600ES projector could cost less than $15, 000.
Finally, a 4K projector does not require more lumens compared to XGA or HD projector lumens. Why? Because lumens are not measured by image resolution but by projector’s output. So the brightness of a 5,000 lumen HD projector is equivalent to that of a 4K tech projector.
