SupportEdit

1440p video mastered from 4:3 ratio content could be displayed with 1920×1440 or higher resolution such as QXGA or 2304×1440 with scaling, windowboxing, or pillarboxing. Widescreen 16:9 1440p requires 2560×1440 (WQHD) resolution, possible with WQXGA, 2560×1920, or higher resolution with letterboxing, scaling, or windowboxing. Apple's 27" iMac[1] and Dell's UltraSharp U2711[2] monitor are WQHD, thereby allowing 1440p widescreen. The HDMI 1.3 specification supports WQXGA, and hence widescreen 1440p.

UsageEdit

In autumn 2006, Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO) announced a 47" 1440p LCD panel to be released in Q2 2007;[3] the panel was planned to finally debut at FPD International 2008 in a form on autostereoscopic 3D display.[4]

In relation to smartphones, 1440p displays are sometimes marketed as "Quad HD", as it is four times the resolution of 720p high definition. The Vivo Xplay 3S, released December 2013, was the first smartphone to use a 1440p display; by 2015, 1440p had seen wider adoption by high-end flagship smartphones from major companies.[5][6][7]
