Vimeo Ready to Roll Out 4K Streaming

While Vimeo has allowed content creators to upload videos of that size—and for others to download them—the service hasn’t actually offered viewers a way to stream videos at such a large resolution. According to reports, Vimeo will be launching 4K streaming in a staggered rollout. A chunk of the service’s users will first gain access to 4K streaming, and the company hopes to be able to unlock the feature for everybody by the first quarter of next year. Vimeo’s move to 4K streaming will also affect titles offered as part of the service’s Vimeo On Demand platform. Though content creators can currently offer up 4K films to download, there’s no way to view them in that resolution using Vimeo’s default player.
