Vimeo Takes It Up to 4K
Vimeo now enables 4K downloads. The video site, which has allowed creators to upload content shot in the ultra-high-definition 4K format for some time now, is now making it possible for users to download and play those videos on 4K-compatible screens.
To be fair, Vimeo’s site does not support 4K streaming just yet. It’s something the company is working on and will provide once broadband providers are able to support the high speeds required for such streaming, the company said.
Instead, those who have access to 4K screens will now have the option to purchase and download supported content in 4K. The first pieces of content available in the format include “A Film About Coffee” and the entire third season of Freddie Wong’s “Video Game High School.”
The 4K option will be available to all Vimeo Pro members as well as creators and distribute who sell content via Vimeo On Demand.Tags: 4k, Freddie Wong, Video Game High School, Vimeo, Vimeo On Demand
