iPhone/iPad 4K - Watch Lumix GH4 4K Video on iPhone/iPad

Can Lumix GH4 4K Videos be played on iPhone 6 Plus/6S's 1920 x 1080 screen or iPad Air 2's 2048 x 1536 display? Not really until you convert/compress 4K 2160p content for iPad iPhone into 1080p. 

Hot Search: 4K HD Video on Windows 10 | 4K Video on Mac OS X El Captian | 

The Panasonic Lumix GH4 is the first system camera offering a solid mix of great 4K image quality, ease-of-use, small form factor, and all at a price that's not out of reach for young pros or upstart video makers. It features a 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor and a 4-CPU Venus Engine, capable of capturing high-resolution JPEG and RAW stills, as well as UHD 4K 3840x2160 30p/24p and cinematic DCI 4K 4096x2160 video at 24p. 

Many GH4 users have encounter a problem as below: 

“I have a 4k camera (Panasonic Lumix GH4) and have only ever been able to play back through my 4K TV, which is a faff. Is there any way to play 4K videos on iPad Air 2 or iPhone 6? I had tried many different video player apps but none of them worked.” 

Sadly to him, such iOS 9 gadgets has not supported playing Panasonic Lumix GH4 4K Ultra HD (UHD) videos directly by far, since they only have the screen resolutions of 1920 x 1080 and 2048 x 1536, respectively, which are not match for 2160p 4K videos, although iPhone 6 allows users to shoot a whole 4K video. 

Why Lumix GH4 4K UHD Video Cannot Be Played on iPhone iPad?

Before you play 4K videos on iPad or iPhone, you should at first realize the following cruel facts:

iPhone 6 Plus screen resolution: 1920 x 1080
iPad Air 2 screen resolution: 2048 x 1536
4K resolution: 3840×2160 (16:9) or 4096x2160 (17:9)

It is a must to convert 4K UHD videos to iPhone/iPad playable ones. 4K video takes too much space to be stored on the them, say, True 4K film needs more data storage, at least 100 gigabytes. Secondly, image stabilization is an important factor to consider, let alone the high requirement on resolution. Besides, human wouldn't be able to tell 4K apart from 1080p screen due to the pixel density. And the 4K video will have better 1080p or the ability to crop or digitally zoom into a 1080p section.

To solve the iPhone/iPad 4K playback problem, all we need is a third-party 4K Video Converter that can convert any 4K video to iPhone/iPad friendly MP4 format. Then apart from shooting crystal clear Ultra HD footage, you can also play Lumix GH4 4K video on the go.
