This blog provides a brief update on new 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD) products.Â Some of these were announced this week at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) annual trade show being held in Las Vegas.
In several past blogs I have discussed international/industry standards that relate to the next generation of Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) devices (i.e., displays, video sources & video distribution).Â Specifically, in past blogs I have discussed (HERE and HERE) the next generation HDMI (i.e., version 2.0) and also the new High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) defined by the ITU-T Recommendation h.265 (discussed HERE and HERE).Â I have also previously discussed (HERE) the potential for a next generation Blu-ray Disc standard that would support 4K UHD resolution.Â For this new blog I am discussing another ârecommendationâ (i.e., standard) already published by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) that defines the âParameter values for ultra-high definition television systems for production and international programme exchange.â
Update on 4K Related Standards and 1080p Projector News
February 1, 2013 -
This blog includes a few updates related to the discussions on 4K and Ultra HD video, as discussed in my previous blogs, plus provides preliminary info on a few interesting new 1080p projectors from Optoma, BenQ and Sony that have been recently announced (i.e., post-CES 2013).
This is a short post-CES blog intended to provde a very quick review of the projector related news out of CES 2013.Â CES 2013 had very little to offer in terms of new projector introductions and the big push by the video manufacturers was for 4K Ultra High Definition LCD/LED displays.Â However there were a few projector introductions.
The 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) begins Tuesday, January 8th in Las Vegas.Â A day earlier (i.e., Monday, Jan. 7th) is designated as CES Press Day and several of the manufacturers of home theaters projectors and related products (including LG, Sharp, Panasonic, Sony, etc.) will be holding press briefings that day.Â This blog previews a few products planned for introduction at CES as well Â as discussing some projector technologies and related video products that may be introduced at CES for the home theater market. Updates from Jan. 7th press conferences now posted.
