The last Apple TV had everything we wanted from a set-top box — except for 4K support. That’s being fixed this year with the Apple TV 4K. It finally gives Apple fans a way to watch higher-resolution streaming video and, not surprisingly, it’ll also accompany the debut of 4K video on iTunes. Naturally, you’ll also be able to watch high-res content on Netflix and other services, as well as take advantage of high-dynamic range lighting with HDR10 and Dolby Vision. You also can transfer your local 4k video files to iTunes or Plex for Apple TV 4K streaming.
The source of 4k video could be various. You can get 4k footage via Samsung Galaxy Note 8, iPhone 8, iPhone X. Or other 4k video shot by DJI Drones, Gopro camera, and UHD camcoder, downloaded from Youtube, and more. Although Apple still doesn’t claim the new Apple TV 4K supported format, it might be MP4, MOV formats according to the older Apple TV 4/3/2/1 supported video. By the way, many 4K videos are encoded with HEVC codec, from Apple official website, this TV box has the ability to handle HEVC 4K video. How can we do if we meet the 4k video which is incompatible with Apple TV 4K? Even though Apple TV 4 doesn’t support some 4K video, we still have the method to play the HEVC 4K on Apple TV 4K with an Apple TV 4K Video Converter.
