Capture and play back UltraHD video with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors

You don't have to go to an IMAX theater to enjoy 4K or "Ultra HD" resolution video. And you don't have to own an expensive video camera to shoot your own Ultra HD video. With devices powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 mobile processors you can capture and play back Ultra HD video everywhere you go.

Shooting your home movies in 4K means you can enjoy them for years to come as technology continues to rapidly evolve and as 4K displays become ubiquitous in the home. With Ultra HD capable devices becoming more affordable and available across multiple device manufacturers, the Ultra HD ecosystem is expected to flourish in the coming months and years with Ultra HD TVs projected to top five million by 2015.1

Ultra HD video has over four times the resolution of full HD 1080p, resulting in improved image fidelity and the ability to maintain this quality on larger displays.  That also means you can play back multiple HD videos on your Ultra HD display at once. And with the ability to display Ultra HD from your device to an Ultra HD TV or big screen, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. is making it as easy to share Ultra HD video content as it is to shoot and edit.

Snapdragon 800 processors enable these many advanced features because they are designed to deliver maximum performance while consuming less power, which means longer battery life and more hours of watching a movie or shooting your own big screen project.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors are the first commercial mobile processors to offer Ultra HD video support, further demonstrating that Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are a leader in mobile multimedia capabilities, in addition to overall performance and long battery life.
