YouTube now supports 4K live streaming

In an announcement made via a Wednesday blog post, Google’s popular video-sharing site YouTube has revealed that it is launching 4K live streaming for standard and 360-degree videos.

YouTube’s announcement that it now supports 4K live streaming means that users will be able to watch live broadcasts for standard videos as well as 360-degree videos in ultra-high-definition.

With YouTube now supporting 4K live streaming, the users of the site can expect smooth flowing content; thanks largely to the fact that the site supports 4K at up to 60 frames per second.

The new 4K live streaming technology will be showcased by YouTube on December 1, at 9 p.m. Eastern, at the Game Awards. YouTube will live stream the entire show in 4K resolution.

Meanwhile, highlighting the fact that YouTube’s new 4K live streaming format will give creators and partners the capability to stream “incredibly high-resolution video,” YouTube Senior Product Manager Kurt Wilms said in the blog post that the new format will also enable viewers to “enjoy the clearest picture possible when watching a live stream on 4K-supported devices.”
