Recording 4K video with a smartphone camera was not possible a couple of years ago. The end result is a viewing experience that surpasses both 1080p OLEDs and 4K LCDs, as it should. Whether you dig the curve or not, at least the TV offers an ample suite of video and audio ports. Yet the most impressive thing about this TV is that LG did the necessary work beyond simply multiplying the pixels in the panel. Yet with 50-inch 4k displays TVs available for as little as $999, the cost of entry is falling fast. We first announced Roku TV at CES 2014 , and our first partners TCL and Hisense began shipping their models in the fall. Today you can buy a TCL Roku TV or a Hisense Roku TV from major retailers including Walmart and Best Buy. The reception has been astounding and we’re very proud of this first chapter for Roku TV.
In practice, current Blu-ray Discs can achieve video with little to no visible banding artefacts, despite being limited only to 8-bit precision (a sign of its early 2000s roots). This is a tricky and inefficient workaround, and the fact that Ultra HD Blu-ray natively supports 10-bit video is excellent news.

IMO there’s a far more appreciable difference in picture quality moving from 24 FPS and 48 FPS film (e.g., the latest Hobbit films) than the difference between native 1080p content and 4k content. The line full benefit of 4k visible” refers to the distance at which you can resolve individual pixels. For 1080p content on a 4k TV. 4 8-bit pixels ganged into a single superpixel could be used to display amplitude with 10-bits/color. Check out our hands-on video below for a closer look at these two new offerings from Sony. It features the ability to shoot 4K/UHD video at 30/24 frames per second and up to 240 fps video at 720p. All of LG’s 2015 4K OLED TVs feature webOS 2.0, the latest version of LG’s proprietary smart TV platform.
