Vimeo is changing the way we will watch video on its platform by introducing 4K quality. To be specific, starting today, Vimeo Pro subscribers can upload their videos in 4K, while the rest of us will have access to 4K downloads.
If you are a Vimeo Pro user you are now able to upload your videos in 4K quality. But those will not be available for streaming just yet. To view a 4K video, users will first have to download it.
Vimeo’s move to add 4K content on its platform follows the introduction of ultra-high definition quality on Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime which all added the option this year. Of course, to watch 4K videos, you will need a 4K TV and these are far from being mainstream right now.
Here is the trailer from Video Game High School Season 3 (not in 4K, you’ll have to download the video for that):
Vimeo said that there are plans to allow 4K streaming in the future but for now, you will have to stick with downloading ultra-large files to enjoy the ultra-high quality.
