4k and 1080p

Part 1. Why do we need to convert 4K to 1080p

1. What is 4K

4K resolution(Open in a new window), also called 4K, refers to a horizontal screen display resolution in the order of 4,000 pixels.

2. What is 1080p

1080p(Open in a new window) (1920×1080 px; also known as Full HD or FHD and BT.709) is a set of HDTV high-definition video modes characterised by 1080 horizontal lines of vertical resolution.

3. The contrast between 4k and 1080p

In short, 4K is four times better than 1080p. As users, we don't need to know more expertise, and we need to remember that 4k resolution is almost twice than 1080P both horizontally and vertically, so the actual display clarity and resolution is about four times better than 1080P.

4. Why do we need to convert 4K to 1080p

A. Storage Space

Downloading or preserving 4K video requires a lot of storage space. For instance, 2-minute 4K video may take up to 450-500MB storage space. If you don't have a 4K Monitor, you could never be able to enjoy a genuinely high-quality 4K video. So we need to convert 4k video to 1080p for easy storage and portability.

B. Upload

4K video files are too big to upload to SNS, such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Vevo, Yahoo, Myspace, etc. Not like the low-resolution videos,4k video is hard to publish.

C. Hard to Play

Easy to play after conversion. 4K video is hard to play on the following media players and mobile devices: GoM Player, QuickTime, VLC, Huawei, iPhone, iPad, HTC, MIUI, etc. But 1080p video can be entirely supported by these media players and devices.

D. Hard to Edit

You can edit it after conversion. 4K video is hard to be edit in general video editing software.

5. What's the difference between 4k video and 1080p video in the actual viewing experience

Here are the specific 4k and 1080p videos, users can experience distinct differences by watching these videos on different devices and environments and draw their conclusions.

Here we can give the conclusion of our test first.

In general, it is impossible to distinguish the apparent difference between 1080p and 4k video with ordinary eyes on general equipment.
