UHDTV: Picking Up Speed (InfoComm 2015 Class – Pete Putman)

June 17, 2015 @ 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

IS09 – UHDTV: Picking Up Speed

UHDTV (or “4K” as it is commonly called) has arrived, and the infrastructure to support this format is coming together faster than you think. 4K televisions and monitors have been available for over a year, as have 4K camcorders. The HDMI standard has been updated (2.0) to add support for high frame rate 4K, DisplayPort 1.3 and Super MHL have upped the interfacing stakes, and the next generation in video codecs (HEVC H.265) is finally rolling out. Thanks to new backlight technologies, we will also see high dynamic range (HDR) and wider color gamuts as integral parts of next-generation televisions. As with any significant advance in consumer electronics, UHDTV will push back into the pro-AV world. And there are already numerous verticals waiting with open arms: Command and control, process control, simulation and immersive environments, medical imaging, securities trading and geophysical mapping, for starters.

This class will get beginners up to speed on the state-of-the-art of 4K, including the different UHDTV format definitions, applicable display technologies for direct-view and projection, bandwidth issues, display interfacing and switching challenges, and codecs (H.264 vs. H.265)
