UHDTV is more than just higher resolution: it can be thought of as a step towards enabling digital media to seem almost as real as the real world.
When the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-R) set out to define the parameters of UHDTV, they were motivated by the desire to provide viewers with an experience that virtually covers all of the human visual field.
Covering the visual field means going beyond HDTV resolutions, which is where most conversations about UHDTV begin and end.
But ITU-R also imagined an enhanced colour space that could match real world colours better than even digital cinema, and higher frame rates that would make motion feel real even for high action sports.
Each of these components – resolution, colour space, and frame rate – can impact the viewer’s quality of experience, and an operator’s use of bandwidth.
In this broadcast white paper, Arris explains how UHDTV can be achieved by using these components.
