YouTube Is Experimenting With 60FPS/4K Videos, See The Sample Videos Here
YouTube continues its journey to take video quality to the next level.
It has not been so long when YouTube added support for sublime 60 frames per second (fps) video playback. Google-owned streaming platform then introduced 4K resolution videos in February. Now, it is working to take the video quality to a ridiculously high level by showing 60 FPS videos at 4k, reports TechCrunch.
The project is, however, still in experimenting stages. A limited number of videos are being offered to watch at 4K/60FPS. Shooting with this resolution is not possible with so-called standard cameras. Special cameras are required for this purpose which are available in the internationally, although they are very expensive.
YouTube has collected few clips to give you an experience of how the 60FPS/4K pictures are going to appear. All the clips are gorgeous and worth watching. But for that purpose, you need a good data connection and excellent display of your PC or laptop. You can fully enjoy these spectacular clips if your device’s display is capable to handle 3840×2160 (4K) resolution. Otherwise, you will find these videos even worse than low quality.
Here I’m posting two amazing clips for you. You can change their quality by clicking on settings. This will give you an idea how the different resolutions affect the smoothness and accuracy of the object.
What if your display doesn’t support this resolution? Even than don’t feel bad because you are not alone there. In fact, the reason why YouTube is beginning with limited experiment is: apart from the cameras, majority of the display screens can not manage absurdly high 4K resolution.
We can hope that if these six clips receive satisfactory response from viewers, YouTube will introduce strategies through which the technology may reach the general audience.
If we will ever be able to get reasonable bandwidth, greater resolution displays, and cameras capable to shoot at ultra high definition, ultra smooth videos, this technology will take video watching experience to the next level.
