BERLIN -- What comes after High Definition? TV makers are hoping shoppers will be enthralled by 4K, also known as Ultra HD -- a resolution that packs roughly four times as many pixels as a Full HD 1080p image.

The bigger question is whether this new disc-based format can really gain traction, bearing in mind the popularity of streaming services such as Netflix, which offer enormous convenience -- even if the resolution is usually lower.
