4K – The next generation of television is here

Satellites are beaming down 4K content. 4K movies and shows are available on-demand through the most popular streaming media services. People are recording 4K videos from the palms of their hands. 4K Blu-ray discs are launching by the end of the year. Yes, it’s official… 4K is here to stay!

So, what is 4K? The answer is simple. Higher resolution images. 4K technology has rewritten the rulebook when it comes to image quality. Multiply the amount of pixels on your current 1080p screen displays by four, and that’s how many pixels are in 4K displays…around 8 million. The more pixels there are, the more detail that can be brought to an image. Those 8 million pixels make all the difference. With 4 times the resolution of current 1080P, you can see the dimples on a golf ball as you watch one of the pros line up his putt.

4K-resolution (1)

4K is not just another trend. The 4K market is growing fast and 4K TV’s are much more affordable than ever before. More and more content is being developed to pair with the capabilities offered in 4K. The question is who is providing 4K content? Today, anyone can create 4K videos. On a consumer level, 4K recording is now included into everything from smartphones and camcorders to drones and GoPros. And the prices for these devices are rapidly dropping.

Big movie studios, such as Sony Pictures Entertainment, have been recording and remastering movies in 4K for years. Sony began offering 4K projectors as early as 2004. The projection of 4K movies took hold of the masses in 2011 as more 4K movies were released and more theaters adopted the new technology. Today, there are more ways than ever to get 4K content.

For on-demand streaming, you can fire up Netflix or Amazon Instant Video to get movies and TV shows delivered in 4K quality. Each service offers exclusive movies and shows which were filmed or remastered in 4K. More streaming media services, such as Vudu and Hulu, have announced plans to release 4K content within the year. Looking to improve your golf swing? You can watch golf tutorials in glorious 4K on YouTube! YouTube has been streaming 4K videos since 2010. To get the best 4K experience you will need a fast broadband connection. 4K content is becoming increasingly accessible as Google, Verizon, and AT&T have been rolling out gigabit internet services around the U.S.


Don’t have a fast internet connection? Late last year, Direct TV launched a satellite capable of sending 4K content down to subscribers. Currently, the satellite service provider offers a set top box which works with compatible 4K Ultra HD TV’s to bring on-demand 4K entertainment. DISH Network is working on bringing the new standard of television to the masses without the need of a fast internet connection. 4K satellite broadcasts have been available in the United Kingdom since early this year. Recently, tech companies have been successfully testing over-the-air 4K content through antennas. That’s right, revitalizing the ole rabbit ears to receive 4K content.

For film buffs looking to get true cinema quality picture and sound without a monthly subscription to a new service, prepare yourself for 4K Blu-Ray. These 4K capable devices are coming at the end of the year. 4K movies require much more space than full 1080P movies; however advancement of the Blu-ray technology will bring 4K content in its best form to existing disc size. No streaming. No internet connection. With 4K Blu-ray movies, you’ll notice nuances of characters and scenes that you’ve never been able to see before. With 4K, you’ll unlock more of the story by seeing the film the way the director intended.

When it comes to consumer use, 4K is the pinnacle of picture clarity. But, what’s beyond 4K? In the future, 4K TV’s will come equipped with organic light emitting diodes, also known as OLED. This technology enhances 4K’s colors palette providing vibrant colors, deep blacks, and bright whites. You also may have heard of some companies working on 8K, which offers four times the resolution of 4K. 8K will be used more for commercial applications, such as entire wall coverings and high-end home theaters.


The future is clear for 4K. With the recent price drops, 4K content and new 4K delivery systems in place, now is the time to make the switch to the next generation of television. Once you make the jump, you’ll never want to go back.

Go Outside and Play

In the last few years, there has been a noticeable shift in the way we use our backyards. In fact, some say it is no longer their “yard,” but an extension of their home.Today, you see so many creative and innovative uses. Barbecues have turned into full blown kitchens, umbrella tables have turned into large dining rooms with serving buffets, coolers have turned into walk up bars complete with beer taps, refrigerators and sinks, and lawn chairs have transformed into living rooms including fireplaces and HD television screens. It is quite impressive what people are choosing to do in their backyards. And why shouldn’t we transform these areas? You paid good money for the real estate. You should enjoy every inch of your property.

One thing I have noticed is, while tens of thousands of dollars are being spent on appliances, stonework and furniture, we sometimes forget one of the biggest pleasures of relaxing outdoors – the music. Music sets the mood, welcomes visitors to your backyard wonderland and just makes everything better. No summer seems complete unless we have a little Jimmy Buffet playing “Margaritaville” while we sip those magical drinks around the pool.

One thing to consider is that using your backyard for entertaining brings about a different listening environment than your home theater. Traditional on-wall outdoor speakers, or “rock” speakers, often result in “hot spots” where music sounds almost perfect in a specific area but not very good in the majority of the yard. Both hot spots and dead spots can be quite annoying.

Many believe just adding more speakers will fix the issue. However, often times it does not. Part of the problem is the technology used in traditional outdoor speakers is designed to project sound to a particular point (hot spot). This contradicts most people’s goals of filling the backyard with sound. Filling an area with sound is best accomplished by using commercially engineered audio systems.

I am sure you have heard these systems before but may not have realized. Think of outdoor shopping centers where entire outdoor parking areas are filled with sound. Or a resort where you stayed and listened by the pool. Whatever the experience, I’ll bet you remember it. You probably felt connected to the environment by not having to move your chair to find a good place to sit, nor did you have to scream your conversation to be heard. One thing you probably won’t remember is seeing the speakers. That is because they are mostly hidden. Buried underground or disguised behind shrubbery, these systems perform best when they are not even seen.

Commercial quality sound systems perform superbly in open-air environments and offer sound that “fills” rather than “projects.” There is a lot of technical explanation, but what is important is that, if properly designed, a commercial landscape system will create a “full” experience.

Until recently, these systems were too costly and used rarely used outside of high dollar commercial applications. Manufacturers of these systems historically custom made each of them, resulting in high costs. But standardizing solutions and a lowering of the cost of this technology has increased demand for these types of sound systems. You will still spend slightly more for this system than traditional speakers, but the spectacular systems are well worth the cost. The backyard literally becomes your own private concert venue, complete with heart pounding bass and a rhythm you “feel” rather than listen to.

At lower volume levels, the system still performs by warmly filling the air around you with your favorite music. One of the key advantages is that is does not overwhelm – it naturally enhances the outdoor environment as if it is not even there.

Systems such as these complete, with everything you need to begin playing music, start around $2500. One wonderful feature is these systems are scalable, as you may want to start out covering a smaller portion of the yard and then build up over time. There is some underground wiring for these systems that can be installed by you or a landscaper. It will be important that you have a proper design; this is not something that you will want to do “off the shelf.” An expert needs to guide you, but it is simpler than you think.

Summer is in full swing and now is the time to enjoy the backyard. So go outside and play – you will rediscover your backyard all over again.
