"Usable" Workspace Resolution at 4K UHD

"Usable" Workspace Resolution at 4K UHD | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


With all the talk at CES being about 4k and a number of new options having come out in the last month and about to hit the table, I wanted to follow up with a discussion about how physical monitor size really matters if you want to use that additional resolution to increase your workspace resolution.

...

Personally I think 50" is the sweet spot but you gotta have a huge desk for that.

The Upcoming Intel Media Box Could Be the Gateway to 4K

The Upcoming Intel Media Box Could Be the Gateway to 4K | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Intel announced Wednesday that its fourth-generation Haswell processors would support 4K resolution.


That’s great news for computers, but even better news if that technology finds its way into Intel’s upcoming set-top box.


With the Iris graphics news and Intel’s desire to break into the TV market with an all-in-one set-top box, the company could deliver the first real 4K content device.


And that would be great, because the 4K transition needs a device that actually pushes content to those expensive TVs.

Will Ultra-High Definition Break the Internet?

Will Ultra-High Definition Break the Internet? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


The amount of data you’d have to stream for ultra-high definition is about 2GB per second.


You’re not going to stream that over your current connection,” says Jeffrey Schniller from MIT’s Information Services and Technology Department.

What happens when the technology becomes cheap enough to tempt millions of us to upgrade?


Think of the strain all that high quality streaming will place on broadband infrastructure.


Is TV going to break the Internet?

Suppose they gave us 4K HD and nobody really cared? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


So what of Ultra HD 4K?


Will there ever be a market for that much resolution in the home?


“Time will tell,” says Panasonic’s Tsuyuzaki. “Keep in mind, people are already working on 8K. But I think 3D, IPTV [TV content delivered via Internet protocol rather than broadcast, cable or satellite] and mobile are the three areas where display technology is really going to evolve in the next few years.”


Translation: Forget 4K for now. Sit back, relax and enjoy your new HD flat screen. It’s going to be around a long while.

Back to the Future with 4K: Large-Sensor Motion Picture Cameras in 2013 | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

A motion picture camera used to be a light-sealed box with a strip of film running through it. Was it easy to thread? Did it run quiet? How bright was the viewfinder?

 

Today’s cameras are exponentially more complex.

 

They are literal bundles of separate technologies, each lurching forward at a different rate.

 

To understand today’s cameras, you must understand the parts to understand the whole.

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.
