4K – Unbelievable Ultra HD
4K Ultra HD displays provide four times the resolution of a standard 1080p full HD display (3,840 x 2,160), making this technology ideal for consumers who want glorious, immersive images. ViewSonic is one of the first companies to preview the technology in a desktop display for cinematography and high-end design usage. As 4K Ultra HD content advancements continue to develop, the company expects the high-resolution displays to gain popularity among professional power users. ViewSonic will continue to closely monitor the 4K Ultra HD market so it can productize quickly once market conditions warrant the launch of a solution that holds true to the company’s value proposition.
