4K Porn

I don’t really know what HD means!
That’s fine – plenty of people aren’t too sure either. I mean, we all have a general understanding that it means better, right? Higher quality content that looks sharper and more ‘modern’, but the technical definition and concept of high definition are a little more involved than just ‘looks good’. So before you read our reviews of the best HD porn sites out there, it’s probably best for you to understand exactly what these concepts are and why they’re so important. Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of video quality and try our best to help you see what’s going on when people talk about high definition porn and 4K sex videos.

Firstly, HD stands for high definition, and that’s a shorthand way of describing two different content formats: 720p and 1080p. The ‘P’ here just stands for progressive scan and as far as I know, there isn’t a single porn studio that doesn’t render in the progressive format (the alternative is interlaced). The two numbers refer to two different content resolutions, with 720p being 1280 x 720 and 1080 being 1920 x 1080. This means that in the case of 1080p, the videos are 1920 pixels wide and 1080 pixels tall. It should be the case that content is recorded in these qualities – not simply upsized to fit those specifications.

Note that there is no currently understood standard for bitrate in these resolutions to meet the HD criteria, but to our knowledge, there are virtually no porn sites that technically fit HD specifications for resolution but offer a very low bitrate. Bitrate is basically a reflection of the quality of a piece of content – the higher, the better. You’d be able to tell the difference between a 2 Mb/s bitrate and a 10 Mb/s bitrate, for instance. The latter would have much better clarity and wouldn’t suffer from as many artifacts, or sections on the video of pixilation and general messiness. So in essence, HD is used to refer to two video formats, both of which generally look quite good on a standard computer monitor.

Okay, that’s great – but just what is 4K?
There are actually two different types of 4K resolution: 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160. You’ll find almost all sites use the second resolution as their baseline rendering quality, as the former is almost exclusively utilized by the mainstream film industry. Note that the difference between 1080p and 4K is that in essence, 4K is equal to 4 different blocks of 1080p content stacked together. This means that in theory, 4K quality content is 4 times clearer and contains 4 times as much data: this usually translates into a much better user experience. However, there’s a bit of a catch!

In order to see 4K quality content, you need to have a computer monitor that is capable of rendering it. A lot of screens are only offered in 1920 x 1080 pixels, and unless you specifically went out of your way to acquire a 4K monitor, you likely only have a screen capable of looking at 1080p content. Only a small fraction of consumers have the ability to truly experience 4K quality videos, but it’s increasing every year and it’s likely that sometime in 2020, it will start to become much more mainstream. 4K monitors are much more expensive, although the price is coming down year on year.

So what are the benefits of HD and 4K quality porn sites?
If you have a standard monitor, you only need to worry about HD, which a lot of porn sites now offer as their dominant content quality. However, if you’ve invested in a 4K resolution setup, be sure to check through our reviews so that you can find content that will give you the best bang for your buck. For your convenience, we’ve looked all over the Internet for the hottest destinations with full 4K quality material and reviewed the destinations so that you don’t have to take risks on sub-par websites. It’s also quite likely that the places we recommend have a few sample trailers you can check out on the tours, so be sure to click on the links and sample their top-tier adult entertainment!

Best of Porn hope that over the coming years, all studios will make 4K quality content their new standard. 8K does exist as a format, but it’s unlikely that anyone will be able to tell the difference between 4K and 8K on a standard PC monitor, whereas it’s possible to detect between 1080p and 4K.

So there you have it – all you needed to know about HD porn and 4K adult paysites! Read our coverage on the best places around for high-quality porn videos today and find a top-tier hub for all of your adult entertainment needs!
