In this article, we'll explain the difference between 4K and 1080p (full HD) and provide a simple guide for using these formats in your interactive video production.

Record and edit

If you want to zoom in during the editing process while maintaining clarity and sharpness, then 4K resolution is the ideal choice. However, 4K files require much more space than 1080P files. If you don't need to zoom the image in post-processing, feel free to choose 1080p. It will save a lot of space on your SD card, computer or hard drive.


When exporting your video from your video editing program to make it interactive in hihaho, you have the option to select from various file formats. We recommend exporting in 1080p (full HD). Hihaho will compress your 4K video to 1080p (full HD) if you upload it. Therefore, there is no need to export your video in 4K and saves you a lot of upload time if you don't upload the video as 4K in hihaho.

Why hihaho compresses files to 1080p

Hihaho compresses your video to 1080p (full HD).

By reducing the file size, we can deliver videos faster, ensuring smoother playback and minimizing buffering for viewers, particularly those with slower internet connections.

Video compression allows us to optimize the streaming experience for users across different connection types and different devices.
