Technology

8K is the next wave of high-resolution video and is double the vertical and horizontal resolution of Ultra HD/4K at 7680×4320. There are 33.2 million pixels (33.2 megapixels) in an 8K image.

4k Ultra HD is the next generation of high definition video, where both the vertical and horizontal resolution is doubled to 3,840 x 2160. There is a bit of a misnomer when calling Ultra HD 4K, as the resolution for Ultra HD falls just short of four thousand horizontal lines of resolution. This is due to the aspect ratio of televisions (16:9 or 1.78:1) being slightly narrower than cinemas (1.85:1). An Ultra HD image has 8.3 million pixels (8.3 megapixels).

DSC 1.2 or Display Stream Compression version 1.2 is a video compression scheme developed by VESA which enables 3:1 compression over HDMI and DisplayPort. DSC is considered lossless and enables higher resolutions and frame rates to be transported over cables otherwise unable to do so. HDMI 2.1 is the first HDMI standard which has allowed video compression.

32.4 Gbps refers to 32.4 gigabits per second. This amount of data is often used in widescreen computer monitors, which are attractive to games looking for a wide field of view.

FEC or Forward Error Correction is a transmission scheme/protocol used to prevent errors before they occur. DisplayPort 1.4 utilizes FEC which allows it to provide a more reliable signal.

High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is the latest version of copyright protection, which is embedded in HDMI and DisplayPort. HDCP 2.2 was released in 2015 and is backwards compatible. Devices requiring HDCP 2.2 must have 2.2 compliant devices from source all the way to the device.
