Broadcasters Not So Eager to Switch to UHDTV

Broadcasters Not So Eager to Switch to UHDTV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


There's a lot of discussion about 4K--also known in the broadcast and consumer electronics worlds as UHDTV--production and whether it is practical for broadcasters to distribute 4K signals--it requires four times the bandwidth of current 1.5 Gbps infrastructures to get into the home.


Broadcasters covering live events have utilized the technology as part of an overall HD sports telecast in order to provide viewers with captivating high-resolution, slow-motion replays and critical analysis of disputed plays.

With little demand from consumers for UHDTV sets, however, it might take a while before we see activity in this space at the local OTA station level.


Indeed, with 4K content now available on YouTube, it's entirely possible that viewers will be watching UHDTV content via the Internet well before it can become a viable broadcast standard.
