4K/UHD is fast becoming the standard most people desire. In short a 4K TV has four times as many pixels as an HD TV – the basic maths are 3840 x 2160 (UHD) compared to 1920×1080 (HD). Until recently 4K/UHD content was hard to come by. But now Sky Q, Netflix and Amazon are delivering 4K content that for some make the investment worthwhile. Even without 4K the capability of a 4K TV enhances the viewing experience of HD content.
OLED stands for organic light emitting diode. These TVs offer tremendous clarity of colour delivery, amazing contrast and blur free transitions. Using OLED technology each pixel (remember there are millions) is illuminated individually and the result is startling brilliant colour and the rendering of a true black. The true black allows for the quality of contrast the is provided. Both OLED and LED can be delivered from thin profile structures that have contributed to the improvement in TV design.

This is the most common HDTV. It allows full HD content.
