Multisystem 4K Ultra-HD TVs for Overseas Use

multisystem 4k tvs for overseas useThe latest major advancement in TV technology is the recent development and transition from high-definition (1080p HD) - which has been the standard for the last 15 years - to the mind-boggling clarity and depth of 4K Ultra-HD (or 4K UHD). While the technology has been in the works for several years now, it's taken some time for manufacturers and production companies to introduce it to the public.
 
Today, there are more and more movie titles being offered in 4K. A growing number of streaming media services and TV channels are offering 4k resolution, but the Ultra-HD picture can only be enjoyed with the use of a 4K TV. Prices were astronomical at first, similar to any new technology, but the increased production on 4k TVs helped to bring prices down drastically in 2014. As 2016 moves on, we're sure to see an increase of both 4k movie titles and channels, as well as a more widespread availability of 4k compatible TVs.
 
What's 4k UHD? Well, the current most common & popular resolution which has been used for quite some time now is 1080p Full HD. As the name implies, the 1080p resolution utilizes 1080 pixels. With 4k HD, the resolution in 3840 x 2160 pixels, which translates to double the resolution of 1080p. It might be hard to believe that there could be an improvement over the picture quality of a Blu-ray disc and an HD TV, let alone twice the resolution - but it's here. And it's expected that half of all US households will have a 4k TV in the next 8 years.
 
So, moving forward to multisystem 4k TVs, you might be wondering what the benefit is?
 
First off, due to the large demand for consumer electronics in the United States there is a huge amount of imports from China & Japan (two of the largest electronics exporters) which helps to keep the inventory up and prices down. In other countries where the number of imported electronics are lower, the prices are naturally higher and the selection is often very limited. The markets are usually populated with generic brands and the most popular name brands such as Samsung, Sony, and LG go for prices that are near twice as much as in the US. What this means is that it's much cheaper to purchase a TV from the US and pay for overseas shipping than it is to purchase the same TV in South America, for example. Purchasing a multisystem unit guarantees that the TV will work anywhere in the world, regardless of the voltage or color system being utilized in that country. People in these countries where the cost of electronics are higher are able to acquire these units at a more affordable price without having to worry about using a voltage converter or video converter.
 
Secondly, multi system TVs are ideal for anyone who is moving or relocating overseas, either short-term or permanently. There's no need to purchase a TV that costs more in a foreign country, or to be stuck choosing from a rather stale selection of brands and models. By purchasing a multisystem unit and taking it overseas, there's no worry about compatibility. You can be in Brazil for two years, Thailand for a year, the UK for a year and then return back to the US with the same TV. Multisystem TVs are also useful for companies who regularly take part in international trade shows and need an effective way to offer a TV display without repeatedly purchasing a foreign TV each time they travel.
 
Third, when we take a look at pricing and demand, 4k TVs are simply not affordable at all in certain parts of the world. The market for them may be very small and the selection of 4k movie titles might be non-existent. The ability to purchase a 4k TV for the same price as a regular TV is a very attractive option for many, especially when used in combination with a Region Free Blu-ray Player which will allow you to watch foreign movies which are more readily available in 4k resolution.
 
It's actually easy to see just why multisystem models are so valuable to a growing number of people around the world. They offer greater flexibility and more affordable pricing than regular models. But what is it that literally makes a 4k TV "multisystem"? That's a good question.
 
Multisystem TVs are units that have been professionally modified by companies specializing in this type of technology. The base model is bought from the manufacturer in bulk and then modified with both upgraded hardware and software. The end result is a TV that can work with any voltage from 110 volts to 240 volts, which covers the expanse of voltage utilized in different regions of the world. Moreso, in different regions the color system that produces the picture is different, and multisystem TVs have internal converters to handle this. No matter where you take your multisystem 4k TV, you're never going to need any type of external video converter or voltage converter to make it work. Everything is built directly into the unit, and the unit keeps it's same appearance. It's really a great technology and it makes life easier for millions of people.
 
If you're in the market for a 4K TV and plan to move overseas soon, or if you're living in a country where the costs are too high and the supply is too low, a 4k multisystem TV is the perfect solution.
