About 4K and Ultra High Definition

4K, also known as Ultra HD, refers to a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. That's four times the 1,920 x 1,080 pixels found in your full HD TV.

4K is by far more commonly used, but you'll also find people calling it Ultra HD, or UHD. For the average consumer buying a TV, these are one and the same. But there is technically a difference. In its correct usage, the term 4K refers to a resolution of 4096 x 2160, which was first introduced in digital cinemas. Meanwhile, UHD refers to a resolution of 3840 x 2160, which is what you get on the 16:9 ratio TVs you actually take home.

So basically, 4K is the wrong term for 3840 x 2160 displays and content, but it's a mistake so common that there is no functional difference anymore. For most people, the two terms are interchangeable.
