Designing System Infrastructure for the UHDTV Revolution

Presented by Pete Putman, Technology Consultant

This year 8K displays are entering the market, but current display interfaces are barely fast enough for 4K signal transportation. As market trends drive the industry toward ever-higher resolution, let's take a step back and examine not just the displays, but the considerations for UHD signal transportation. This class will get attendees up to speed on the state-of-the-art of 4K and beyond, including the different UHDTV format definitions, applicable display technologies for direct-view and projection, content storage and delivery requirements, bandwidth issues, display interfacing and switching challenges, and codecs. Attendees will leave with an understanding of:

  • UHDTV standards and specifications for image capture and display, including SMPTE UHD-1 (up to Ultra HD) and UHD-2 (beyond Ultra HD) definitions
  • How to calculate the basic bandwidth, clock rate, and data rate requirements* The basic differences between low-latency codecs (JPEG2000, DSC) and high-latency codecs (MPEG4 H.264, HEVC H.265, VP9) for encoding and decoding 4K and what types of switches are required to move 4K video content over networks
  • Economic factors that have accelerated the adoption of commercial flat-screen displays with 4K resolution, are nudging projectors to move to 4K resolution, and leading a transition to 8K resolution in the near futureThis session is open to all seminar and workshop package holders, and will be seated on a first-come, first -served basis.
