4K pass-through

A feature of an A/V receiver that allows a video source to pass unaffected through the receiver to a 4K TV without any processing. For example, all 4K content from a 4K source or an upscaling 4K Blu-ray player must be passed directly to the 4K TV.

In order to transfer a 4K signal at 60 fps, receivers must be HDMI 2.0 compliant (see HDMI versions). Some receivers also include 3D pass-through for 3D content and 3D TVs. See 4K upscaling and 4K TV.

No Processing
This receiver can be set to pass through 4K content directly to the 4K TV. All modern A/V receivers have 4K pass-through.
