We’re proud to release the Fall 2020 update of our Guidelines including

  • the creation and distribution of live content, produced in UHD with HDR and Wide Color and then distributed via the Internet (OTT)

The Ultra HD Forum Service Tracker focusses on services that are commercially available to consumers. B2B and event-based services only have sample data for now.

We estimate the number of consumers that can easily access a UHD service thanks to UHD device penetration data kindly supplied by IHS-Markit. Ultra HD Forum members collect this data, and the “Data Check” field reflects its reliability.

Note that the raw data is only available to members, so do check out membership options. Please let us know through our contact form if you see any errors or omissions.
