Here they share a tip on Good Content for 4K and 4K Ready TVs:
Your television choices are poised to get a lot sharper this year as a growing number of content producers are making the move to 4K.
At four times the pixel resolution as 1080p HDTV format, TV screens with Ultra 4K HD (UHD) show significantly more detail than their HDTV predecessors. If you've already seen 4K content, with its 3,840 X 2,160 resolution, or if you remember the surge of programming changes when HDTV began to replace standard resolution, you'll understand what all the excitement is about.
Of course, Netflix is an absolute must for anyone with a 2014 Sharp AQUOS 4K Ultra HD TV. Not only is Netflix just beginning to stream movies like “Smurfs 2,” “Ghostbusters” and “Ghostbusters 2″ in UHD, their growing list also includes every episode of “Breaking Bad.” In February 2014, Netflix made television history by producing in and streaming its own House Of Cards Season 2 in 4K. Although Season 3 is still in production, there's no reason to believe Netflix would step down now that they've raised the bar. Until then, if you've already seen House of Cards in 1080p, make sure you watch it again to catch every nuance of the performances and the magic of the cinematography in 4K.
Although standard broadcast TV may not be available in 4K in the very near future, the major networks aren’t being left behind. Shows like “The Michael J. Fox Show,” “Black List,” “Rake,” and “Save Me” are all being shot in 4K. In June 2014 “Saturday Night Live” began testing 4K video for its show. Fox used six 4K cameras during the 2014 Super Bowl and ESPN started experimenting with 4K during the 2014 NBA Championships.
You even have the option of viewing your own video content in 4K on an increasing number of personal video devices such as the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition. Simply link your GoPro with your 4K television to experience your videos in ultra-high definition.
Though you won’t be waiting long for 4K television broadcasts to become the norm, in the meantime, streaming video on Netflix, other online players and through your own 4K videos are all options for jaw-dropping 4K quality today.
Check out these tips for enjoying your 4K Ultra HD TV viewing experience:
Tip #1: Take advantage of HDMI 2.0
4K comes with the added bonus of the HDMI 2.0 interface, featured in the new UD27 line of Sharp AQUOS 4K UHD TVs. This is a big deal because it allows 4K content to be rendered at up to 60fps (frames per second). Using an older interface will cause 4K programming to potentially appear blurry during some action or high-speed sequences.
Tip #2: Check your connection speed
If you’re streaming content to a TV, computer or mobile device, you’ll need to maintain an Internet connection speed of 25Mbps or higher in order to ensure you accurately capture the 4K viewing experience.
Tip #3: Upscale your HD
Even if your favorite shows aren’t available in 4K yet, you can still benefit from enhanced resolution on the right TV. Sharp’s AQUOS 4K UHD TVs come with Revelation™ Upscaler, a cutting edge technology that processes ordinary HD while you’re watching it and enhances the resolution, making everything you watch sharper and more vivid.
Tip #4: Look for certified, award-winning quality
Sharp’s AQUOS 4K UHD TV was the first in the market to receive THX 4K certification. Certification entails rigorous, grueling testing to ensure that the TV meets the high standards set by the new format. This guarantees that you’re buying a TV 100-percent capable of rendering all of 4K’s lauded standards in full resolution, with the full spectrum of colors and at a frame rate that won’t drop any of the action. At the 2014 CES, the Sharp AQUOS 4K UHD TV won the 2014 Best Ultra HD Television Award.
