UHD, acronym for Ultra High Definition, is a video resolution standard that offers superior image quality compared to High Definition (HD). The UHD resolution, also known as 4K, is 3840 x 2160 pixels, which is four times the number of pixels of standard HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). This increase in the number of pixels allows for sharper, more detailed, and realistic images, significantly enhancing the visual experience for movies, TV shows, games, and other multimedia content.

In everyday life, UHD technology is used in various devices and platforms. For example, UHD televisions offer an immersive viewing experience with exceptional image quality for watching movies and TV series. Streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+ provide content in UHD, allowing subscribers to watch their favorite shows in high definition. Modern gaming consoles, such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, support games in UHD, offering detailed graphics and realistic visual effects. Additionally, many high-end cameras and smartphones can record video in UHD resolution, enabling users to create high-quality content.

In Switzerland, the spread of UHD technology is constantly growing thanks to the availability of compatible devices and the country's advanced network infrastructure. TV subscription providers typically offer a wide range of channels already prepared for UHD viewing via internet transmission. With this increasing availability of UHD content, the Swiss can enjoy a superior visual experience, both for entertainment and content creation.
