Why 4K?

With its name based on over 4,000 pixels of horizontal resolution it represents, and with twice as many pixels in both the horizontal and vertical directions as 2K resolution, 4K resolution is an emerging standard in digital cinema production. In simpler terms, 4K has far more pixels than 1080p HD televisions providing a far richer and more engaging movie watching experience at the theatre than at home.
