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.

NAB 2013: NHK Demos Super Hi-Vision 8K Technology

NAB 2013: NHK Demos Super Hi-Vision 8K Technology | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it



At NAB in Las Vegas, Japanese broadcaster NHK demonstrated its real-time, over-the-air transmission and reception of 8K for the first time outside of Japan.


8K technology is considered Ultra High-Definition — touting resolution 16 times that of HDTV.


The U.S. and U.K. are currently exploring the possibilities of 4K technology, which seems more realistically applicable within the market at this point.


8K broadcasting is more difficult to introduce and implement, for a number of reasons, but NHK is still pushing forward.

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.

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.

When you look in the rear view mirror of the annual NAB Show, there ought to be a collection of both the past and future: an honest look at what hasn’t worked; what’s awaiting the industry a few months down the line; what’s coming 10 years into the future.

 

Television broadcasting needs to drive for a new and more capable next-gen platform,” said Mark Aitken, vice president of advanced technology at Sinclair Broadcast. For many broadcasters and for the networks, it’s 4K; for others it’s the promise of mobile TV.

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.

UHD TV makers: J'Accuse!

UHD TV makers: J'Accuse! | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Current UHD 4K TVs are incompatible with any future streaming, broadcast or Blu-ray 4K content delivery standards, and UHD TV makers know it.


If TV makers know current UHDs will never be able to display commercially available 4K content, and do not loudly and clearly inform buyers of this 4K disability, they are teetering on the edge of consumer fraud.


After all, how can you call your TV "4K" if it can't play back anything in 4K?

Having been used to tech events being held at the newest restaurants and bars in Manila, I had to double check the invitation from Samsung.

 

Because of all the places to launch their newest line of Smart TVs, the Metropolitan Museum seemed the most unlikely one of all.

 

Sharing centerstage with some of the best art pieces in the country, Samsung’s 2013 TV line up occupied several halls of the Metropolitan Museum for its Timeless Reflection: An Exhibit of Life that showcased the brand’s promise of bringing together art and technology.
