I don't see anything about 4K on the product page for the Quatro -

Or do you mean a different product? This one is the HDHR5-4US.

Regional Specifications:

4 tuners
8-VSB (ATSC over-the-air digital TV)
QAM64/256 (unencrypted digital cable TV)
Works with our HDHomeRun DVR service
100baseTX high-speed network
1 year warranty
Please note: This product HDHR5-4US will only work in the US.
New Server - Sage9 on unRAID 2xHD-PVR, HDHR for OTA
Old Server - Sage7 on Win7Pro-i660CPU with 4.6TB, HD-PVR, HDHR OTA, HVR-1850 OTA
Clients - 2xHD-300, 8xHD-200 Extenders, Client+2xPlaceshifter and a WHS which acts as a backup Sage server

Yeah, I see just above the buy button there is a picture of the device with a little text blurb in a circle that says "our devices are 4K ready".

I wonder what they mean by this and whether it applies to all their priducts or just the ones on this page?

These 2 products only work with OTA and clear QAM - I don't know if any 4K content is currently available this way in the US. If it is available, I wouldn't be surprised if most of the existing Silicon Dust products could do this (possibly with a firmware upgrade to recognize the format and store it in the correct container).

The trick is going to be finding something with a hardware encoder (like HDPVR) that works with a STB and handles 4K, or finding something that can record 4K from a streaming service.

It mean that it should be ATSC 3.0 ready which for 4k TV signal with OFDM instead of 8VSB for modulation side so it still backward compatible with ATSC 1.0 and 2.0 signal.
I think what there doing is getting all TV and Tuner outdate as fast before flip the switch on over ATSC 3.0

According to SiliconDust, this is "normal ATSC" and not ATSC 3.0:
