What is 4K Ultra HD DTH, 4K DTH Wiki

4K Ultra HD DTH technology delivers 4 times the picture resolution than a 1080p Full HD. There is four times the number of pixels in the same size screen than a normal 1080p HD TV. 4K Ultra HDTV has 3840 pixels wide by 2160 pixels high to make the total pixel count of 8.3 megapixels. This is four times the pixels count on a normal HD TV of 1920x1080 pixels which totals to 2.1 megapixels. Hence the picture quality of 4K DTH is much better than a normal HD TV.

The higher pixel density of 4K enables you to sit much closer to the TV and you will not see that small mosquito-net like pixel grid structure on the TV screen. This allows you to watch a giant 55 inch TV or 65 inch TV or even larger TVs sitting up close to the TV, which gives a much more realistic experience of you being really being inside the scenes playing on the TV screen.

Watching a cricket match sitting close to a 4K DTH is so good that it is difficult to describe. For more on 4K TV technology visit our website
