About 4K Ultra HD
4K is the moniker used to describe a video resolution that has at least 4,000 horizontal pixels. There are a number of different 4K resolutions; a common one is 4096x2160, for a total resolution of 8,847,360 pixels - that's over four times the resolution of current 1080p

4K requires expensive cameras and very powerful and high-resolution projectors to reproduce the resolution natively in the digital domain. 4k can be down-converted to 2k and printed on 35-millimeter film for wide distribution to theaters that don't have 4k digital projectors.

In the consumer electronics space, 1080p (1920x1080) is currently the most common resolution for HDTVs and front projectors, but the latest trend is to move beyond 1080p. You can find a few very high-end display systems that offer a 4K resolution of 4096x2160 (or higher) - including the Sony VPL-1000ES SXRD projector, the SIM2 CinemaQuattro DLP projector, and the JVC Pro DLA-RS4000 D-ILA projector.

While 4K technically requires at least 4,000 horizontal pixels, the more common trend in the A/V industry right now is to offer displays with a 3840x2160 resolutions This resolution was formerly called Quad Full HD because it is exactly four times the resolution of 1080p. However, in October 2012, the Consumer Electronics Association introduced the term "Ultra High-Definition" or "Ultra HD" to describe any display device with at least 3840 horizontal pixels, 2160 vertical pixels, and an aspect ratio of at least 16:9.
