Definition: 6K resolution


Approximately 6,000 (6K) pixels of horizontal resolution. Although 4K TVs have become mainstream, it remains to be seen whether a 6K TV will be forthcoming to bridge the gap between 4K and 8K, the latter prohibitively expensive as of 2018. However, RED has a 6K video camera, and other cameras are expected.
