Netflix 4K Review: Why You Don’t Need UHD Blu-ray

Category : Hot Topics

Some people may be miffed by Sony’s decision to exclude a 4K Blu-ray drive since they firmly believe that 4K Blu-ray offers best picture quality and sound effect than 4K streaming video. In addition, 4K streaming has high requirements for the Internet streaming speed. However, for those people who value price more much, we would high recommend you to take 4K Netflix streaming video as a consideration for its rich content, cheaper price and also splendid video and audio quality.

Top reasons to choose Netflix 4K streaming but not UHD Blu-ray

Rich 4K content

There’s a stack of Netflix 4K content available right now, from Breaking Bad to House of Cards, and more will inevitably follow. And if you have an HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatible TV, there’s some HDR content on Netflix too. Netflix is delivering nearly 50 4K titles to choose from, ranging from documentaries to comedies to action series.

Cheaper price

Streaming video via Netflix is service is also cheaper than buying discs. It’s currently £9.99 for 4K Netflix and you can watch as much as you want, while 4K discs are around £20 to £25 each. Then there’s the cost of the player; the first UHD Blu-ray player to enter our test rooms costs £600.

Splendid video and audio quality

Whether 4K, Full HD or standard definition, Netflix serves video streams at exactly the sort of quality you expect. Watch a 4K stream like Better Call Saul on a 4K display and it’s prodigiously detailed, vibrant and stable.

Colours pop, contrasts punch and the sheer amount of information available for your enjoyment is thrilling.

If 5.1 audio is available, Netflix will serve it up in the same manner as it does pictures: robustly and positively. Anyone who has invested in a home cinema set-up (or even a soundbar) will reap the benefits with an altogether more substantial and immersive sound than those who rely on their TV’s integrated speakers.

Best HEVC(H.265) Video Decoder/Encoder for Windows 10

Category : H.265 (HEVC)

If you wanna convert your video files to or from H.265 to get the quality with smaller size but have no idea how to begin, this tutorial should help you to find the best H.265 decoder/encoder for decoding/encoding H.265 on Windows 10.

High Efficiency Video Coding, abbreviated in HEVC, also known as H.265, is a successor to currently most commonly used video compression format H.264, which is said to double the data compression ratio compared with the previous. But some phone, tab, TV, stream box etc don’t support H.265. We need to convert it into another file type which is supported by our device.

HEVC aims to encode video at the lowest possible bitrate while maintaining a high level of video quality in transmission with lower bandwidth utilization ratio. To put it simple, compared with H.264 video, H.265 video offers a smaller video size at the same level of video quality, and enhance video quality at the same bitrate. We also find a lot of Apple device users want to convert their video files to H.265 format since it’s the best format for video experience.

B. Why Decode H.265

At present, 4K (2160p) resolution videos can only be contained into two formats – MKV/H.265 and MPEG. And the average bit rate reduction for HEVC is 64% for 4K UHD and 62% for 1080p. However, most 4K TVs cannot decode H.265/HEVC, leading to the failure of downloaded 4K/H.265 videos playback on TV. And streaming H.265/4K video to TV on Windows 10 for watching won’t be possible as well.

In fact, it even supports x265 directly, as well as features from linbpx, VP8, and other sources — giving you the option to mix and match your open source cereals in the same big bowl. If you have Windows, you can also get support for QuickSync video.

In addition to borrowing the encoder, HandBrake’s method of picking out features from various services means that you need a lot of support for everything to work, which could take time. On the plus side, you can have the best of several worlds with some effort.
