Wi-Fi Alliance Kicks Off A/C Certification Program
The Wi-Fi Alliance today launched its Wi-Fi Certified ac certification program. The new program is meant to ensure the compatibility of 802.11a/c Wi-Fi products across a range of consumer devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Wi-Fi Certified ac devices will operate in two bands, 2.4GHz and 5GHz, and will be able to handle streaming content such as Ultra HD and 4K video. The Wi-Fi Alliance expects the first Wi-Fi Certified ac devices to reach the market during the second half of the year. Routers and access points will be the first devices to attain the new certification, but other consumer electronics hardware will follow shortly thereafter.
4K Video is a useless tech
Also - based on the "resolution" the human eye can detect, and based on average viewing distances from a TV, a 1080P or 4K tv would have identical sharpness, and our eyes would perceive the images as being exactly the same.
4K is really a useless, high priced, luxury technology that nobody really needs, and that our eyes are not equipped to handle. Why companies keep investing in this is beyond me.
