Eternal Shoal was named because these silver fish seem quite happy to swim around the central dome of light all day. The central dome is also where the bubbles come from to oxygenate the water. The 5.1 surround sound on the MP4 videos features the relaxing sounds of underwater bubbles. It is a comforting video to have on in the background. The scene is very repetitive which may help some people to meditate or think about future plans.
When you have pressed play on the promo clip above; we recommend selecting the settings icon and then pressing 2160 4K, the the full-screen button; for the best quality. This shoal of fish was filmed in 4K Ultra HD resolution, which is four times bigger than Full HD 1080p. The 20 minute MP4 video looks amazing looped on large UHD TV screens.
If your UHD SMART TV supports 4K playback (all Samsung TVs do), you can copy the video to a USB stick and play it through the SMART TV’s media player. Otherwise you can use an inexpensive media streamer or media player box. We discuss some options on our blog (link below).
If you still have a HD TV screen or lower resolution, then the Full HD version is the choice for you. It may be 4 times smaller in resolution, but it is still the same video, only will all the detail packed in more tightly. This makes the Full HD video higher quality than videos filmed in Full HD as more detail has been squeezed in.
Eternal Shoal is also available in 4K Ultra HD or Full HD as a computer screensaver for Mac or Windows. These versions loop every 3 minutes. Most of our Windows screensavers (including this and all 4K ones) do not have sound because Windows does not allow adjustable screensaver volume. The Apple Mac screensavers have adjustable volume controls.
We think this circular tank is very unique and worth considering adding to your Uscenes collection of TV wallpaper or screensavers. It may not be as colorful as our other aquariums, but the screen is literally filled with fish and the calming sounds make it very relaxing, almost hypnotizing to watch.
