UW10K resolution (UW standing for Ultra Wide) is horizontal resolution of about 10,000 pixels. UW10K resolution was added to HDMI 2.1 to support computer monitors.[1] This resolution is expected to be used in computer monitors, and is not a standard format in digital television and digital cinematography, which feature 4K resolutions and 8K resolutions.


On June 5, 2015, Chinese manufacturer BOE showed a UW10K display with an aspect ratio of 21:9 and a resolution of 10240 × 4320.[2]

On January 4, 2017, HDMI 2.1 was officially announced and the specification was originally scheduled to be released in Q2 2017, but later delayed to November 28, 2017.[3][4] HDMI 2.1 added support for higher resolutions and higher refresh rates which includes 4K/120 Hz, 8K/120 Hz, and UW10K/120 Hz.[3][4] HDMI 2.1 specified a new 48G cable which supports a bandwidth of 48 Gbit/s and Display Stream Compression (DSC) 1.2 is used for video that is higher than 8K resolution with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling.[3][4][5]
