Which ClonerAlliance products support 4K resolution?

What is 4K resolution?

While this might seem like a simple question, the answer is slightly more complex than you might think. Basically, there are two accepted 4K formats: one used in televisions and one used in the cinema.

The television standard — which is the one you’re most likely to come across — has a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160. Technically, this is actually referred to as “UHD” or “Ultra High Definition”. That’s why you’ll often see TVs branded as 4K UHD, rather than just 4K.

The other definition of 4K comes from the cinema. 4K projectors don’t have a horizontal resolution of 3,840 like TVs. Instead, they have a width 4,096 pixels. This is set out by the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI), which is an organization formed by major movie studios to try and standardize the modern cinema experience.

Interestingly, because movies can be shot in different aspect ratios, there’s no set limit on the amount of vertical pixels on a 4K projector.

What is 4K resolution on TVs?

It’s a screen that displays 3,840 pixels horizontally and 2,160 vertically. This means it has four times as many pixels than a 1080p screen (which was the old HD standard).

Nowadays, there are quite a few movies, TV shows, and console games produced in 4K. Then which ClonerAlliance products support 4K/4K UHD video input and pass-through? Let’s find out.
