The article discusses the ability of 4K resolution standards for televisions to provide picture quality that is comparable to that of images projected at a movie theater. 4K images allow for at least four times the amount of pixels, the small points that make up an image, in a high definition (HD) image, which allows images to better retain quality on large screens and at close distances. The transition to 4K is discussed, including efforts by technology companies Sony, LG, and Toshiba.
