Our aim is to be true - The 4K (to some of you is a dirty word) rollout has been quite frankly a mess. It's been half baked to say the least.
Resolution - yes, everything for the most part now is running at 2160P (3840x2160) - lighting every pixel on the screen.
But, that's not the end of the story - to get these large signals into the home they have to be compressed over 100:1 to fit through that 15 MBP/Sec (USA average home Internet speed) Internet pipeline. Further there are different frame rates - 30 frames per second, 24, 60, etc. What does this mean to the picture? The quality? Motion artifacts abound today and upscaled 1080P blu-ray still looks better than most streamed 4K native content.
Our aim is to help you make the decisions that best suit your customers requirements on a particular job:
4K UHD HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 - running at 18 GBP/Sec - These products will produce the best visual and aural experience possible today. Backbones of this level should be employed in your highest end theaters and media rooms. The distances will be short (3-5 meters), and high-quality HDMI cables must be employed. These products can output video resolutions of 2160P60 @ 4:4:4 8-bit or 4:2:2 10-bit HDR.
4K UHD HDMI 2.0/1.4a Hybrid with HDCP 2.2 - running at speeds up to 10.2 GBP/Sec - These are great products for running over extended distances using HDBaseT technology and CAT 5e/6/6a and 7 cables. Solid copper and shielded cables produce the best results. This deployment method produces excellent picture quality but is limited to 2160P60 @ 4:2:0 8-bit, meaning 1/2 of the color pixels are lost in a compression methodology called chroma sub-sampling.
1080P HD HDMI 1.4a and earlier - running between 5-10.2 GBP/Sec - These products have plenty of bandwidth to reproduce excellent quality 1080P content - blu-ray 1080P24 @ 4:2:0 8-bit is native format and it's the same for cable and satellite set top boxes. Computers and gaming devices can output 1080P60 @ 4:4:4/RGB with headroom to spare and especially at the higher frame rates these devices produce less motion artifacts. A great choice for non-critical viewing environments like sports bars, conference rooms, dens, etc.

In our own research this is not always the case - leading to frustration for integrators.
