There’s a lot of talk about “4K” and “4k”, but what actually is Ultra High Definition TV? Richard Salmon will explain how UHDTV is more than just increasing the resolution of the TV signal, and that what we are seeing at present is only the first step towards the next broadcast system. Higher frame rates, wider colour-space, greater bit-depth and dynamic range are also important features, and some of the parameters are still being thrashed out by the standards bodies.
Richard Salmon is a Lead Research Engineer at BBC R&D, with particular expertise in TV colourimetry and display technology. Having been involved with HDTV research since 1992, he has a deep technical understanding of the entire image chain from the camera, through compression systems, to the viewer’s impression of the displayed image. He inspired and led work within the BBC on higher frame rates, culminating in very successful demonstrations at IBC in 2008 and 2013. He is chairman of the EBU Displays group, and is also active on “Beyond HD” and LED lighting topics in the EBU, the UK Digital TV Group (DTG), DVB and SMPTE. He is an Honorary Fellow of the BKSTS, and a member of SMPTE, the Society for Information Display (SID) and the IET.
