New 4K Ultra HD TV Logo Unveiled

4K Ultra HD Logos

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) today announced new logos to designate 4K Ultra High-Definition TVs, monitors and projectors for the home that meet CEA’s voluntary core characteristics (see below) for 4K Ultra HD display products announced earlier this year. The logos are specifically designed to assist consumers in identifying these products in the marketplace. 4K Ultra HD basically describes display products with more than eight million pixels — four times the resolution of Full HD (1080p).

The logos will be made available for voluntary use by manufacturers for product packaging, marketing materials and promotional activities. Two logos will be made available for use – 4K Ultra HD and 4K Ultra HD Connected – mirroring CEA’s voluntary characteristics, which were designed to address various attributes of picture quality and help move toward interoperability, while providing clarity for consumers and retailers alike.

“The new logos mark another important milestone as the inevitable evolution to 4K Ultra HD continues,” said CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro. “These logos and consistent nomenclature will help consumers navigate the 4K Ultra HD marketplace and assist them in having a great experience at retail and at home.”

CEA is currently developing a licensing agreement for manufacturers who use the new logos.
