Why Do You Need a 4K Projector? Formovie Has the Answer

Why should you choose a 4k laser projector

The best home theater projectors offer a spectacular picture quality that is comparable to the display you get at the cinema. With a majority of the latest films and television shows being produced in the highest possible quality, it’s quite essential to consider including a 4K UHD projector in your home theater if you prioritize the quality of the displayed image. Streaming services such as Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime Video produce and stream a majority of their content in 4K UHD because the images have greater depth and detail. But what is 4K, and why does it deliver such remarkable images?

What Is 4K?

Electronic images are made up of pixels, and the resolution of an image describes the number of pixels displayed per inch of the image. The more pixels an image has, the higher the resolution will be, and the more detailed and realistic it will look. 4K is often described as Ultra High-Definition (UHD) because it’s an improvement on the previous 1080p full HD and 720p standard HD resolution. A 720p image has 1280 x 720 pixels per inch, while a 4K image has a total of more than 8 million pixels (3840 x 2160) per inch, to produce what is known as true 4k. 4K enhancement technology can achieve just over 4 million pixels by doubling native 1080p, which is good for smaller screens but can distort the quality of the image on a larger screen.

A 4K Projector Is Essential

Each tiny pixel displayed by a 4K projector works to deliver a detailed depiction of every visible color, revealing more color details in each frame. This is ideal on a massive screen that’s more than 100 inches wide, whether it’s being used for gaming or watching high-quality 4K UHD movies. The screens on computer monitors, cellphones, and even some TV sets are considerably small enough to get away with making an enhanced 1080p image look deceptively close to being true 4K, but a large screen using the same technology could display an image that looks slightly smudged. And while you may consider owning a 4K TV instead of a 4K projector, the TV would take up more usable space even when it’s not in use, while delivering a screen size that’s considerably smaller than a projector.
