which reduces file size by 2 or 3

relative to H.264 for the same image quality

precisely, the image quality

it is the power of these media players

of course they are abble to playback true 4K video content

but more important, the media players include the Zappiti MagicPixel technology

very punchy, very sharp with an improved local contrast

with this enhancement, you can benefit from 4K even on a standard Full HD TV.

In fact, today many people own 4K TV but it is still quite expensive, especially for front projectors

This why the Zappiti Player 4K are very interesting to benefit from 4K without changing your TV
