A video I created to visualize the proportional scale differences between 8K vs 4K vs 1080p vs 720p and Standard Definition screen and TV resolutions.
When it comes to TV or computer screen resolutions it is a topic that many people struggle with. Mostly, because in today’s society, for almost everything, bigger is better. However, when it comes to TV or computer screen resolution Believe it or not it really depends more on the source of the footage it was correctly formatted. Looking at the 1080p video on a 2K monitor is not as clean as if it were on a native 1080p monitor. Mainly because the 2K monitor will upscale the resolution.
With that being said, this 3D animation that I created should give you some perspective on just how different these varying resolutions actually are. When you see the difference in 8K vs 2k vs 1080 definition it is quite stunning.
While there is no standardized definition for HD, it is accepted that any video image with substantially more than 480 vertical lines in North America or 576 vertical lines in Europe is considered to be HD or high-definition. The term UHD is commonly used to describe 4K 8K and higher. Some additional names include (Ultra HD television, Ultra HD, UHDTV, UHD, and Super Hi-Vision. This animation was created using Cinema 4D, Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, and Audition.
