4K To Be Called 'Ultra HD'


The next generation of "4K" high-definition display technology for the home-giant-screen TVs with more than eight million pixels of resolution, four times the resolution of today's high-definition televisions - will be called "Ultra High-Definition" or "Ultra HD," the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) said.

CEA's board unanimously voted yesterday to endorse the consensus opinion of CEA's "4K" Working Group recommending the term "Ultra High-Definition" and related performance attributes. The name and related minimum performance characteristics are designed to help consumers and retailers understand the attributes of this next generation of superior television and display technology beginning to roll out this fall.

The Working Group, now known as the CEA Ultra HD Working Group, was formed earlier this year to bring an array of stakeholders together to discuss how best to define and educate consumers about this new technology.

The group defined the core characteristics of Ultra High-Definition TVs, monitors and projectors for the home. Minimum performance attributes include display resolution of at least eight million active pixels, with at least 3,840 horizontally and at least 2,160 vertically. Displays will have an aspect ratio with width to height of at least 16 X 9. To use the Ultra HD label, display products will require at least one digital input capable of carrying and presenting native 4K format video from this input at full 3,840 X 2,160 resolution without relying solely on up-converting.

Ultra HD technology will be displayed at the upcoming 2013 International CES technology trade show, which will be held January 8-11, 2013, in Las Vegas.
