Traveling through Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the next month?
Lucky you, because the airport will be home to five big-screen 4K Ultra HD TVs, thanks to Best Buy.
Starting Oct. 12 and running through Nov. 8, the Best Buy 4K UHD Gallery (in the atrium mall near ticketing) will feature TVs from Samsung, Sony, LG, Vizio and Sharp and show 4K video of Atlanta’s landmarks and cityscapes.
Passersby will see a picture that’s four times sharper than HDTV. The crystal clear 4K UHD screens have eight million pixels, compared with HDTV’s two million.
And from Oct. 12-15, friendly Best Buy Blue Shirts will greet travelers at the gallery and encourage them to participate in a “See the 4K difference” game. If they can spot the subtle differences that only a 4K picture could show, they will win a $10 Best Buy gift card.
It’s another way we’re bringing this immersive TV technology to people where they are.
Last year, we brought 4K UHD TVs into Jet Blue’s Terminal 5 at JFK over the holiday season to entertain weary travelers, and we also outfitted dozens of U.S. restaurants with 4K UHD TVs.
Tweet @BBYNews if you’re headed through ATL between Oct. 12 and Nov.8 or check out these fun and quick informational YouTube videos on 4K UHD TVs.
