Why You’re Not Seeing 4K Content
When you’re considering a home entertainment upgrade, you probably do research on the kinds of components that will go into your home. Does your new TV or projector sport 4K and HDR capabilities? Will high frame rate playback make the Dolphins’ game easier to watch? And you’ve probably also thought about a media server or 4K Blu-ray player that can playback the highest resolutions available. So that means every link in your chain is fully capable of 4K resolution, right? There’s one thing you’re forgetting.
A common problem with 4K playback is cabling. That means, basically, that the HDMI cables you have running from your Blu-ray player to your TV may not support full 4K content. Because 4K offers four times the resolution of now-standard 1080p HD, it actually takes much higher bandwidth to view it. Essentially, playing 4K content on a standard HDMI cable can lead to a kind of traffic jam, leaving you with a low quality image or no picture at all.
By upgrading to HDMI 2.0 you can ensure you’re seeing everything the way it’s meant to be seen in your home theater or media room. Of course, HDMI can’t reach farther than about 16 feet. So what do you do when you want to stream 4K video and lossless audio to your bedroom, kitchen or even across the yard?
Distributing High-Quality AV
If you want to stream 4K throughout your home – and especially if you want to stream lossless audio – you’ll need to upgrade the cabling. That means investing in a professional wiring installation and fiber-optic cables. Unlike HDMI, fiber-optic cables aren’t copper-based, which allow them to distribute reliable signals up to 300 feet. If you want to stream video from the main building to the pool house, you can do that with ease.
Fiber-optics also handle both streaming audio and video signals easily. You can simultaneously play top-quality audio and video without any lag or quality reduction. So whether you want to play your favorite tracks or have a private movie marathon, you can trust that it will look as good as possible.
