NVIDIA Shield in the Mancave
Talking 4K streaming with NVIDIA's senior product manager Chris Daniel
Every so often a product comes along that is a must-add to the Mancave. Well, the Shield, NVIDIA's 16 GB media streaming device, is such a product, offering 4K streaming, advanced gaming and AI in the Home. As of March 2017, this is NBC Sports Radio's Product of the Year. NVIDIA Shield offers the fastest, highest-quality streaming for movies, shows and games. It is faster than Fire TV, Roku Ultra and Apple TV.
NVIDIA SHIELD is a streaming beast, offering the fastest, smoothest 4K HDR video, infinite apps and entertainment, and NVIDIA-powered gaming in the cloud or from your PC. It’s everything you want in one game-changing device that’s 3X faster than the closest competitor.
What is 4K?
4K refers to the approximate number of pixels or dots that display horizontally across your display or TV screen. In reality, this number is 3,840, but TV manufacturers round up to 4000, or 4K resolution.
Most current HDTVs feature 1920 (or about 2K) of these pixels. Many next-generation TVs and displays have doubled the number of horizontal pixels as well as the number of vertical lines. In sum, this leads to a 4-fold increase in the number of mega-pixels.
The more pixels, the clearer the image. 4K resolution delivers ultra-sharp image quality that's 4x sharper than last-generation 2K HDTVs. Movies and TV shows will be more detailed than you've ever seen on a television before, and sports will make you feel like you're at the game.
The NVIDIA Shield system retails for $199. For more information, visit www.nvidia.com
