The 5K standard represents an intermediate value between the 4K standard and the 8K standard, which, however, will only reach market maturity in a few years. 5K thus represents the midrange of Ultra High Definition Television( UHDTV) with a horizontal resolution of 5,120 pixels, which is 1,000 pixels more than the 4K standard, and a vertical resolution of 2,880 pixels.
5K screens have 5,120 pixels horizontally and 2,880 pixels vertically with a 16:9 aspect ratio. In ultra-wide format with a 21:9 aspect ratio, the vertical resolution is 2,160 pixels. If a 4K screen has 8.5 megapixels( MP), it is 14.7 MP for the 5K screen.
