New 4K TV - What is it?
A 4K Ultra HD display (like a television set) has twice the vertical and horizontal resolution of a typical 1080p HDTV. That means it has four times as many pixels and has a resolution of 3840 pixels x 2160 lines. This means that you can get the clarity you get on your smartphone or tablet — but on the big screen.

What is Blu-ray?
Blu-ray (not Blue-ray) also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is the name of an optical disc format jointly developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of the world's leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers (including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, HP, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TDK and Thomson). The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio codecs will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience.Read more...
