Learn how to set up 4K and HDR on your PlayStation®4 Pro.
4K is almost four times higher definition than standard (1080p HD). Though all PS4 systems have HDR capabilities, you can enjoy 4K only with the PS4 Pro system. Availability of enhanced image quality depends on your home entertainment set-up. The PS4 Pro automatically selects the best available resolution.
The definition displayed on your TV may be limited when you have a PlayStation®VR Processor Unit and headset connected to your PS4 Pro.
You can only get dynamic 4K with a PS4 Pro system connected to a 4K compatible display device (e.g. 4K TV, 4K projector) with a Premium HDMI cable.
You need to enable 4K on both your PS4 Pro system and 4K compatible display device. You also need to enable this setting in any other device in between your PS4 Pro and 4K compatible display device (e.g. 4K compatible Home Cinema System/AV receiver)
