YouTube launched 4K video support in 2010 and now Google has announced that it is bringing the 4K video support for live streaming. Good news for all YouTube streamers is they can live stream both standard and 360-degree videos in 4K. Now let’s shed some more light on YouTube 4K live streaming feature that’s been recently offered.
YouTube 4K Live Streaming Support For Standard And 360-Degree Video
YouTube 4K live streaming support will enable content creators to broadcast in HD resolution at 60 frames per second. This feature has arrived just a few weeks after YouTube launched 4K HDR support to allow YouTubers create and produce content in vibrant colors. Currently, creating 4K content is lot easier than producing 4K HDR content, which makes YouTube’s decision to make use of already available technology understandable. This new technology is a win-win for both content creators and viewers. YouTube content creators will be able to make use of available tech to produce high quality content and viewers will be able to see video in a markedly better quality.
All this means, anyone with a YouTube channel can start broadcasting in 4K live streaming today. If you belong to YouTube viewer category, the first show that you can watch in 4K is The Game Awards. YouTube has entered into a deal with The Game Awards to live stream the complete show under this new 4K live streaming format. The first ever episode of the show will go on air on December 1st at 8:30 ET.
For creators this means the ability to take advantage of an incredibly clear picture for recorded and now streaming video. It’s the kind of thing that can help to push their hardware (and their talent) to create the most beautiful or just plain crazy-looking images and videos possible. And with 360 4K live streams, the sky is (literally) the limit. Get ready for 360 concert and event streams that look sharper, cleaner, and brighter than ever before.
YouTube is known as a video streaming platform in essence. Furthermore, one reason for YouTube’s prolonged dominance in online streaming is it constantly introduces new features and revamps offers to stay in touch with constant evolving technology, which often sets the industry standard for others to follow. This new YouTube 4K Live Streaming is among one of the long line new features that was in the pipe-line for years to take YouTube to a whole new level. You can now enjoy live concerts and streams in immersive 4K resolution. Besides, this new 4K live streaming will also be in high demand in gaming and e-sports categories.
