YouTube Rolling Out 4K Live Streaming

YouTube has just announced that it is rolling out 4K live streaming with both standard and 360آ؛ viewing at up to 60 frames per second. Those of you eager to start burning through your bandwidth cap can start by watching the Video Game Awards tomorrow at 6pm PST.

4K video isn’t just a little different from HD video; it’s a giant leap. It shows 8 MILLION pixels total, with an image that has four times more image definition than even 1080p video. What does this mean in real world terms? Live streams look better, show a more detailed, crisper picture, and aren’t as blurry when there’s fast action on screen. Basically, 4K makes everything better to look at. And because we support 4K at up to 60 frames per second, creators can make content that looks silky smooth, and more realistic than ever before.
