Apple TV Features That Were Added And Left Out
September 13, 2017
Apple TV 4K will, as the name puts forward, offer 4K streaming (no mention of UHD throughout the presentations). Pushing the bar further, it joins the Chromecast Ultra as the only streaming device with Dolby Vision; others such as Roku and Android TV boxes only offer HDR10. To be sure, this is a major card in Apple’s deck, as high dynamic range is as important—some would say more important—to increased video quality as the added resolution. From a standards perspective, the Apple TV 4K also has the HEVC decoding, HDMI 2.0a, and HDCP 2.2 standards under its belt, as the formats require.
