Over the past 18 months I have posted several blogs discussing the various industry standards related to 4K / Ultra High Definition (UHD) video.Â For this blog I’ll discuss a new voluntary standard for UHD products that has been released by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and report a major step forward for the premier codec for the encoding/decoding of UHD video.
This blog presents a overview of the “High Dynamic Range” capability being proposed in some quartersÂ asÂ one of the enhancements to be supported byÂ future Ultra High Definition (UHD)Â displays and video sources/services.Â Â Also included in this blog is an update on the update to the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard, whichÂ defines one of the critical UHD related technologies.
This blog includes the contents of the message we received from a visitor to our web site as well as some background and discussion on the subject of using a 4K Sony projector with 'Scope' projection screen, with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 or 2.40:1, instead of the traditional HDTV aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (i.e., 16 x 9).
This blog is focused only on new video projectors and Ultra High Definition (UHD) video sources introduced at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). I will also cover what's happening in general with the roll-out of UHD products and related technologies.
