YouTube officially announced support for videos shot in 4k over at VidCon 2010 conference. Er… what’s 4k? 4k refers to a resolution of 4096 x 3072. This is the standard resolution used in professional video recording, before getting it recorded. That’s why it’s called ‘Original’ size for videos. Kinda like raw in photography.
This proves that YouTube is light-speed ahead in the online video portal for now, supporting from 260p to 4,096p. Suddenly, watching YouTube in HD 1080p sounds kind of outdated. Granted, only a handful of Tom and Jerry out there owns a 4k camcorder, and what’s more 4k projectors aren’t your typical home theater setup option as they are rather pricey. But this does not mean you can’t go and click that ‘Original’ tag in YouTube’s video quality option.
