UHDTV: Major steps to "better pixels"

UHDTV: Major steps to "better pixels" | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Future television systems may bring higher resolution images, but also other elements that will improve the viewing experience. 

These include ‘Higher Dynamic Range’ (giving the images ‘sparkle’), Higher Frame Rates (making for sharper images) and improved colour rendering. The meeting agreed that all of these elements will be important in the short or long term.

The term ‘pixel’ is used as an abbreviation for ‘picture element’.

The meeting’s view is summed up by the phrase UHDTV with ‘not just more pixels, but better pixels’.
