Which is better, an HD TV or a UHD TV?


Have you ever wondered what does HD television, 4K television, and UHD TV mean? Though we commonly use these terms, many of us are clueless about what these terms actually mean!

Worry not, even if you are clueless.

This blog will give you a better understanding of everything related to the display of a television.

HD, High Definition refers to the Resolution of a display. Before comprehending more about HD, we require a comprehension of the Resolution and other factors related to the display’s Quality to understand better.

Resolution of the display is what determines the Quality of the display, image, or video. Alright. But, what is Resolution? It is nothing but the pixels on both the horizontal and vertical axes of the display.

However, the display quality does not depend entirely on the Resolution, though it is a significant factor.

What is Resolution

Apart from this significant factor, other factors like the PPI and the HDR also determine the display quality. PPI (Pixels Per Inch) of a display is based on the display’s Resolution and size. A 5-inch display with a Full HD resolution will have more PPI than an 8-inch display with HD resolution. In order to increase the PPI, the manufacturer must increase resolution of the display. By letting in more pixels, the visual experience on display will be stunning and impressive.

The 1920 x 1080 is the Resolution, an HD display can store. In short, an HD display can store about 2,073,600 pixels.

Ultra High Definition display has a resolution of 3840 x 2160, and it can store around 8,294,400 pixels. Manufacturers often advertise UHD TV as 4K televisions. But to be honest, both are not the same. So are manufacturers fooling us?

No, they are not fooling us. Because 4K is a term introduced by Digital Cinema Initiatives.

And the exact term they use to promote their products is 4K UHD TV. 4K is a term used to refer, professional standards. Whereas, UHD refers to broadcast standard. And there is no difference in Quality between UHD and 4K.

Currently, few broadcast providers like Netflix offer 4K content. The UHD televisions use unique algorithms to enhance the picture quality of Full HD content. Gaming consoles like the PS4, and Xbox One X support 4K graphics. All you need is a robust graphics card to render the games.

Not just Resolution, image processing of UHD television is also advanced. So the output from a UHD TV is better than any other HD TV.

UHD TV price starts from Rs.28,999 in India. Check out the official website of Poorvika to place your orders.
