NAB 2013 - Why You Should Care about what Broadcasters buy!

NAB 2013 - Why You Should Care about what Broadcasters buy! | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

At the end of the day, NAB can truly be said to have long outgrown its roots as a show for broadcasters and production people only.

 

While not as close to our space as an ISE, CES, IFA or CEDIA trade show, it does leave us some interesting vantage points from which to gauge the changes that are soon to come about in the availability of high-resolution video ability, the ability of content owners to distribute it to consumers and what we will use to display and play that content back.

A 4K workflow as familiar as today’s HD

A 4K workflow as familiar as today’s HD | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

With the recent news that Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has decided to begin broadcasting live Ultra high-definition signals into consumer’s homes for the finals of the football World Cup in Brazil in July 2014, and the launch of Eutelsat’s satellite-based 4K movie channel last summer, broadcasters around the world are beginning to look at the various parts of the 3840 × 2160 pixels production chain to make it a practical reality.

 

Many see 4K as the next big thing in consumer electronics and the broadcast industry—particularly satellite TV providers—is doing its part to make it happen.

 

Gerhard Lang, Vizrt’s Chief Engineering Officer, and his team of engineers has dedicated significant resources to optimizing the company’sViz Engine to process and manage the bandwidth-hungry 4K (and within five years, 8K) signals and make the workflow as seamless as it is with today’s HD (1080i and 720p) workflow.
