Cool TV resolution confusion: 1080p, 2K, UHD, 4K, 8K, and what they all mean

Great article. 1080p is really 2K when compared to 4k, but 4k is really 4 times the resolution (pixels) of 2k. LOL

"Decades of TV discussions have talked about vertical resolutions, and then all of a sudden we're talking about "4K TVs," which refers to the horizontal resolution. Don't blame me, it wasn't my idea.

That means 1080p is not "1K." It's 2K, as much as UHD TVs are 4K. Which is to say, at 1,920x1,080 they're close to the DCI's 2K specification of 2,048. That said, most people don't call 1080p 2K; they call it 1080p or Full HD."

"When you boil it all down, here's the takeaway: Your current TV (unless it's really new) is HD, either 720p or, more likely, 1080p. New 4K Ultra HD TVs have four times as many pixels as 1080p."

Buy a new 4K. You'll be set for at least 6 months! Don't pay more for 3D. Bluetooth and WiFi a must. Have it professionally color adjusted.
