4K x 2K, 3D support
H.265 hardware decoding up to 4K which can support the real 4K output. 4K streaming content is compressed in order to be sent across the internet to your TV. Hardware powerful enough to decompress this content is needed to display 4K content on your television. High definition content is streamed using the H.264 Codec. This requires a lower specification media player to process. Our media player will process both these and many more codecs.
