Get set: 4K UHD is coming fast to a TV set near you

Get set: 4K UHD is coming fast to a TV set near you | Perform Video | Scoop.it


John McGrath of Rethink Studios, who’s always been giant steps ahead of the digital curve, has seen the future and it’s Ultra High Definition, aka 4K technology.

“It’s coming and it’s coming fast,” he predicts.

At 3840 x 2160, 4K Ultra HD is four times the total number of pixels on a full 1080p HD screen.

“All the technology is here, so we’re just waiting for affordable 4K TVs for the home and the cable boxes to deliver the content,” says 4K proponent McGrath.

“It’s going to be what 3D never achieved".

Apple takes big step toward making Apple TV a gaming console

Apple takes big step toward making Apple TV a gaming console | Perform Video | Scoop.it
Apple has never really been much of a gaming company but that could change this year. Apparently Apple is planning a major update for Apple TV sometime over the next two months that will add support for Bluetooth-equipped gaming controllers. What’s more, sources say that Apple wants to let users download iOS games directly to Apple TV instead of having to rely on using their iPhone or iPad. A move to put iOS games on the big screen would be a major move into the gaming sector for Apple, which for a long time has stayed away from investing in gaming.

Sony Alpha 7R Review: Digital Photography Review

Sony Alpha 7R Review: Digital Photography Review | Perform Video | Scoop.it

Two products that have been getting a lot of attention lately are the Sony a7 and a7R full-frame mirrorless cameras. Last month we took an in-depth look at the Alpha 7, and were mostly pleased with how it turned out. Now it's time to take a look at its big brother, the Alpha 7R, which offers a 36 megapixel sensor with no low-pass filter and a more conventional autofocus system. Is the a7R worth the price premium over the a7? Click below to find out.

Taking what it describes as a “measured and cautious” approach, the DTG, the industry association for digital television in the UK, has suggested that it has the time in the next six to twelve months to define clearly what Ultra-high definition television actually means and what it really means for the UK broadcast industry.


Describing Ultra-HD one of the most exciting things that is going to happen in terms of TV experience in the next ten years, Richard Lindsay-Davies, Director General of the DTG suggested that this was one of main reasons the DTG was determined to get it right.

As a consumer of electronics a TV is a must have. With the way advances in television has grown we always look to get the most bang for our buck. And with the onset of UHD TV's not everyone can afford one but with a competitive market this price will steadily decrease. Song and Samsung have been the staple of a dueling rivalry in the field of technology. One claims to be better than the other and so forth and so on. But what really makes a company stand out is their connection to their consumers in ways that are simply revolutionary. It could come at an expense but to launch a product into a market that has never been seen before adds emphasis to the growth and capability of the company
