More content coming for 4K TV owners, courtesy of Vimeo

Many 4K TV owners have lamented their investment, mainly because there is not much 4K content out there, and the content that is out there is hard to find.

Roku and Amazon Fire TV have made 4K an integral part of their latest offerings, and content providers are following suit.

Today, Vimeo is announcing that it will be rolling out 4K viewing across the platform and it will be available to all users by Q1 2016. Vimeo on Demand will also support the technology, making it the largest, open-access on-demand platform with 4K worldwide.

“Vimeo empowers creators to make, share and sell their best work, and starting today, have that work played back in the highest resolution possible,” said Andrew Pile, CTO, Vimeo. “We launched 4K upload support for PRO members last year, and now, as we start to see more widespread adoption of 4K-enabled screens in the market, we’re excited to roll out adaptive streaming across Vimeo.”

Last month, Vimeo also updated Cameo, its video-eiditing app for iOS to support 4K video shot on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S Plus.
