While 4K video is still relatively rare, and you will not find 4K TV channels (let alone 4K TVs that are mighty expensive in relation to Full HDTVs) widespread in most countries around the world, the technological wizards have already continued marching forward in their quest for ever higher resolution counts that will make your eyes pop out in amazement. In fact, 6K (that would mean 6000 x 3000 pixels) footage that ran at 86fps was recently shown off by the CEO of Jannard and Co., RED.
I guess for the end consumer, it will not matter too much just yet as it will take a fair number of years before 4K video even becomes mainstream, so there is nothing to worry about even if you have just dropped some handsome coin for a curved OLED TV.
