Posted by ARJO HUIJBREGTS
One important factor to consider when choosing a Huion pen display is the resolution of the screen. In this blog, we will explore the differences between HD, QHD (also known as 2.5K), and 4K resolutions and how they can impact your work(flow).
Full HD Resolution
HD resolution, also known as 1080p, is the most basic resolution available in Huion's current display assortment. It has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which means there are 1080 horizontal lines of pixels and 1920 vertical lines.
Full HD resolution is suitable for basic sketching and drawing and design, but it may not provide enough detail for some professional work. It's best suited for beginners or hobbyists or professionals that do not require the highest level of detail.

QHD, also knowns as Quad HD or 2.5K, is a step up from HD and has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. This means that there are four times as many pixels as an HD display. A QHD pen display has a higher pixel density, resulting in sharper and more detailed images.
QHD is suitable for professional artists and designers who require a higher level of detail in their work. It's especially useful for digital painting, where fine details can make a significant difference in the final result.

4K, also known as Ultra HD, is the highest resolution available in pen displays. It has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, which means there are four times as many pixels as a QHD display and sixteen times as many as an HD display. A 4K pen display has the highest pixel density, resulting in incredibly sharp and detailed images.
4K resolution is ideal for professionals who require the highest level of detail in their work. It's particularly useful for tasks that involve fine details, such as digital sculpting and texture painting.

How resolution impacts your work.
The resolution of a pen display can have a significant impact on the work of a user. Higher resolutions provide more detail and sharper images, allowing for more precise work. This can be especially important for artists and designers who need to work with fine details, such as textures or small elements.
Lower resolutions may make it harder for users to work with precision, especially when working with small details. However, it's worth noting that a lower resolution may be sufficient for certain tasks, such as basic sketching or drawing.
In conclusion, when choosing a pen display, it's important to consider the resolution of the screen. HD resolution is suitable for beginners or hobbyists, while QHD resolution is ideal for professional artists and designers who require a higher level of detail. 4K resolution is the highest level of detail available and is best suited for professionals who need the highest level of precision in their work. Ultimately, the choice of resolution will depend on the user's specific needs and budget.
