“UHD is achieving public and broadcasting enthusiasm”
The world is adopting UHD. Programme-makers are happily investing in UHD productions. In Europe’s major markets UHD channels are now multiplying, while OTT services are increasingly dominated by UHD content. Broadcasters such as Sky, Canal Plus now recognise the huge value of UHD transmission, for sport, drama and what Sky calls ‘Shiny floor’ entertainment shows.
4K display sales are at record levels, while individual channel broadcasts in UHD are gathering pace. It is the same in North America where DirecTV and EchoStar’s DISH are fully backing UHD.
Indeed, as the world looks towards 2020 and the Tokyo Olympics as well as annual football championships, the importance of UHD cannot be underestimated.
- The event will have broadcasters, from the BBC, Sky, Insight TV, Travelxp 4K, and from 4K programme makers such as Paramax Films on how their UHD plans are evolving, and what the market is buying
- Our examination at the state of the market draws together the statisticians, technologists, broadcasters and retailers to discuss the state of the industry, and the prospects for broadcasters – and viewers – for the rest of 2019 and 2020 and beyond.
- We’ll hear from transmission specialists Globecast, the number-crunchers at GfK and our regular panels of Technologists and Retailers.
- Delegates will hear from post-production experts from The Farm and how an increasing number of producers are capturing content in UHD. The BBC’s Phil Layton (head of Broadcast & Connected Systems, BBC R&D), and flushed with the success of their Natural History output, will update delegates on how the BBC is readying for more UHD transmissions. Leading technologists from MediaKind, Ateme, Grass Valley, Sony will discuss how their clients are tapping into UHD, while the all-important retail sector will update what’s happening in the High Street.
