4K upscaling for real-life clarity
Experience your favourite movies in up to four times the detail of Full HD with 4K upscaling. Connected to a compatible TV, an advanced video processor converts standard video into a signal nearer to 4K resolution (3840 x 2160). With eight million pixels in the picture, you get sharper, more detailed images, and the higher image quality lets you sit closer to the screen for an at-the-cinema feeling.
