In the last two years, more and more videos and movies are produced and edited to 4K resolution. Along with this wave, 4K also came to famous streaming video hosting sites like YouTube, Vimeo and others. Generally speaking, you can watch 4K videos in two ways. The one is buy a 4K video player, connect it to 4K display for watching 4K content. While the other one is download 4K from web and play them on computer, mobile or portable devices. Whatever the case, for better enjoy 4K files, owing a superior player is the premise.

In April, Sony unveiled its 4K media player- FMP-X1, priced at $699. It will be official on sale in this summer. If you buy this player, you can get ten true 4K movies which include The Amazing Spider Man, Total Recall, Salt, Bad Teacher, That’s my boy and more. A bunch of short video clips also will be packed in. Sony has already launched 4K displays and will going to launch two sets of highly cost-effective 4K TV in the following month. These products provide customers great chance to play 4K videos. Set the player to match with high definition display, turn your living room to a mini cinema. Another good news, the fee-based video service will be available in the near future. At that time, users can download more 4K movies and videos from the library.

The RED company is the pioneer in the 4K digital camera field. And now, RED’s cinema player is ready for pre-order. This player has a cool name, REDRAY, which priced at $ 1750. For playing 4K videos with REDRAY 4K video player, you should convert videos to the special .RED file with the inbuilt encoder first. Then, just import the .RED files to SD card or USB drive and insert it into player. The rest thing is connect REDRAY player to 4K display or projector, select the video for watching.
