When Does 4K Not Really Look Like 4K?

4K.com's Stephen Jukic explains how the quality of video delivery is about more than just pixel quantity.

He writes, "The funny thing about TV content resolution (or projector, theater and PC content) is that its quality often has a lot more to do with how the delivery is going than what the number and quality of pixels you’re supposed to be getting is. This applies as firmly to 4K as it does to any other resolution or video content type and a lot of consumers who absolutely want ultra HD video entertainment would do well to keep this bottom line in mind. Many examples of mediocre 4K UHD transmissions can be caught if one pays enough attention and for a lot of these cases, what ruins the quality of the UHD lies in defects with how it was transmitted and, slightly less importantly, how the video itself was made or produced."
