Here we go again...HDMI 2.0

Now, 4K resolutions comes with the latest in HDMI technology. HDMI 2.0 is the next generation of one of the most commonly used formats in home audio/video systems. This upgrade is designed to increase both frame rates and color for your 4K viewing. There's been a lot of confusion as to if you will need to switch out the old HDMI cables with new ones. After some research, it seems like the most recent version (HMDI 1.4) only needs an upgrade with its internal microchip on your devices and sources, not the cable. I think the sky is the limit with the newest technology coming out. It's crazy to know that TV technology has come so far from the original 16 frames per second rate.

Adding 4 times the amount of resolution to your picture, this technology is bringing new life to what we thought was amazing quality. Most 4K TVs are home theater worthy size of around 80 inches, but in the recent 2015 International CES expo there were some models as small as 43 inches. Cameras and camcorders with 4K capabilities were also introduced to pair with the new TVs.
