YouTube to show off 4K video at CES 2014 in LG and Sony Booths

YouTube has announced that it will be showing off its new 4K video streaming capability at CES 2014. YouTube will be showing the streaming video off in the LG and Sony CES booths. The YouTube 4k service will use Google's in house developed VP9 codec reports HDTV Test.

That codec allows the streaming of 4k video without needing lots more bandwidth. That means the video will look better even on slower web connections. YouTube also notes that the VP9 codec will reduce the data needs for streaming full HD video roughly in half.

Google tried in the past to get its own video codec adopted as the default, but that never happened. Things are different with VP9, Google currently has 19 hardware partners signed up. That means that VP9 is expected to become the default 4k video streaming codec out there. YouTube is open to using H.265 codec as well in the future.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
