UHDTV – or 4K as it is commonly called – has arrived, and the infrastructure to support this format is coming together faster than you think. 4K televisions, monitors, and video cameras have been available for two years.

The HDMI standard has been updated (2.0) to support high-frame-rate 4K, while DisplayPort 1.3 and Super MHL have upped the interfacing stakes. Next-generation televisions will have people uttering new abbreviations: HDR (high dynamic range), WCG (wide color gamut), and HFR (high frame rate). And as with any significant advance in consumer electronics, UHDTV will push into the pro-AV world.

There are already numerous verticals waiting with open arms: command and control, simulation, medical imaging, digital-out-of-home media, live entertainment, and more. This session will get attendees up to speed on state-of-the-art 4K, including different UHDTV format definitions, applicable display technologies for direct-view and projection, bandwidth issues, and display-interfacing and switching challenges.
This session carries InfoComm Renewal Units (RU): CTS: 1 CTS-D: 1 CTS-I: 1
