HEVC was used in the beginning. Click on the ‘More reading on HEVC’ tab on the right of this page -

Rough analogy (not that you or Ron disparage 4K) – hobbyists or lay persons say things like cataract surgery -> “a new clear lens”….actually I could find an exact example of that on this very forum if I were to do some searching.
