The Consumer Electronics Association announced today that 4K resolution will officially be known as Ultra High Definition. For products to qualify for the Ultra HD moniker, they will need at least one input capable of transmitting 4K resolution video (3840 x 2160) without upconverting. Both 4K and 8K (7680 x 4320) resolutions will fall under the Ultra High Definition category.
Ultra? Really? CEA must be learning to name things from the mobile industry. What are we going to call 8K, 16K, and 32K resolution displays - True Ultra High Definition, Mega True Ultra High Definition, SUPER MEGA TRUE ULTRA HIGH DEFINITION?
Everyone's been using the term '4K' already - why not pick that as the standard? As a pixel density enthusiast, I object to my displays being called Ultra High Definition. Only Ultraman is Ultra enough to have Ultra in front of his name. I'm going to continue to use '4K'.
