An adult video provider has claimed to be the first such company to “master and release” all of their content in the Ultra HD ‘4K’ format.

One of Huccio’s founders, Toni Tsai, told Gizmodo that the extra detail provided by the display format wouldn’t ruin the fantastical elements of explicit videos by showing “gross” “flaws”.

“There seems to be some backlash online about how "gross" porn would look at 4K, but we beg to differ.”

“I will say that more care needs to be taken during the shooting and post process as you will inevitably see more details.”

“Details do mean more flaws exposed but when done right, as we hope you see in our content, it can look amazing.”

Porn, both jokingly and with some evidence, is often associated with the success of popular video formats, including VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray.

Tsai explained that he expected 4K to triumph as the next generation of video displays.

“As 4K cameras become cheaper, I think the porn industry will definitely crossover and 4k will become the norm sooner than most people think,” he said.

“Of course, there will be varying qualities of 4K, so our goal is to provide the best visually. Because we had a head start in shooting exclusively and mastering our content in 4K, our goal is create the biggest Ultra HD 4K erotica porn library for our subscribers.”

Huccio will start hosting the Ultra HD material, which it has accumulated over the last year, from December 1st, with subscription and pay-per-view access options.
