In the past 10 years there has been a lot of changes made to how people consume entertainment. Just a little over 15 years ago, if anyone wanted to watch any type of video, they needed a TV set. However, there were some computers and laptops with DVD drives. Then YouTube has came out which has brought forth advancements to streaming technology. Eventually, streaming has gotten to the point where people can watch high quality pictures in fluid motion. Before YouTube, people were for the most part stuck with choppy and blurry video. The interesting thing is that the choppy and blurry videos were viewed on much larger screens.
Then as recently as 5 years ago, the smartphone has become one of the most popular devices. One thing that made the smartphone stand out from the other types of phones is that people were able to watch videos. The best part is that some of the best smartphones at the time allowed 1080p high definition playback. This gave people the ability to watch images that are very clear and sharp. The best thing about this is that even though the screen is a lot smaller than a television or even a smaller computer monitor, the definition was so high that people can easily make out video definition as if they were watching it on a larger screen.
Another interesting thing about smartphones is that they can present images that have a sharpness that can actually surpass that of some of the lower end digital cinema projectors. With 4K technology available, it is only a matter of time before they start releasing smartphones equipped for 4K playback.
