About this event

Ultra High Definition TV sets are starting to be sold in significant numbers in the shops, but what are the broadcasters’ plans, and how much benefit will there be for consumers?  The first “4k” TV sets simply increased the resolution.  A survey with over 2000 respondents will be reported which shows how the UK population might benefit from increased resolution.

But UHDTV is about much more than simply increasing resolution.  The hot topic of the year is High Dynamic Range (HDR) and with a variety of different HDR solutions becoming available, the important aspects and differences, as they affect TV production in particular, will be explored.   Many TV sets sold in 2017 will be able to handle HDR and wider colour gamut.  The last piece of the jigsaw though is higher frame rate, and the standards and delivery methods for this are also now falling into place.

This talk will be given by Richard Salmon and Manish Pindoria from BBC R&D. A demonstration of High Dynamic Range, High Frame Rate UHDTV will be provided.
