16K Resolution

16K resolution is a display resolution with approximately 16,000 pixels horizontally. The most commonly discussed 16K resolution is , which doubles the pixel count of 8K UHD in each dimension, for a total of four times as many pixels.[1] This resolution has 132.7 megapixels, 16 times as many pixels as 4K resolution and 64 times as many pixels as 1080p resolution.

Currently, 16K resolutions can be run using multi-monitor setups with AMD Eyefinity or Nvidia Surround.[2][3]


In 2016, AMD announced a target for their future graphics cards to support 16K resolution with a refresh rate of 240 Hz for 'true immersion' in VR.[4][5][6]

In 2018, US filmmaker, Martin Lisius, released a short time-lapse film titled, "Prairie Wind" that he produced using a 2-camera Canon EOS 5DS system he developed. Two still images were stitched together to create one 15,985 x 5792 pixel image and then rendered as 16K resolution video with an extremely wide aspect ratio of 2.76:1.[7] This is among one of the first known 16K videos to exist.

Innolux displayed the world's first 100-inch 16K8K display module at Touch Taiwan in August 2018.[8]

Sony introduced a 64-foot-wide by 18-foot-tall commercial 16K display at NAB 2019 that is set to be released in Japan.[9][10] It is made up of 576 modules (360x360p), in a formation of 48 by 12 modules, forming a 17280x4320p screen, with 4:1 aspect ratio.

On June 26, 2019, VESA formally released the DisplayPort 2.0 standard with support for one 16K (-pixel) display supporting 30-bit-per-pixel 4:4:4 RGB/Y?CBCR-color HDR video at a refresh rate of 60Hz using DSC video compression.[11]
