So where are we in spring 2018 in terms of UHD deployments. Get the latest from Thierry Fautier, UHD President in his NAB 2018 keynote presentation.
In an Olympic and a World Cup year, the first generation of UHD has been fully rolled out, with over 50 commercial services worldwide, more than 125 live TV channels with 4K resolution and 1000s of hours of VoD. This Ultra HD Forum session will look into what’s under the hood of these initial services and how they relate to our Guidelines and Interoperability tests, with a special focus on HDR.
Commercial UHD services in operation that we were aware of as of April 2018.
All parts of the UHD value chain are represented this year, and of course our very own 7 demo pods at the Futures Park in North Hall.
UHD Phase B Guidelines address:
Dynamic Metadata HDR solutions
High Frame Rate
Content Aware Encoding
Next Generation Audio
Our Phase A guidelines, updated to V1.4 are also still available for download.
The Ultra HD Forum is bringing together market leaders from every part of the industry; broadcasters, service providers, consumer electronics, and technology vendors to collaborate on solving the real-world hurdles, and accelerating Ultra HD deployment.
