    Re: News - BBC broadcasts gig in Super Hi-Vision

    I saw the demo for this at IBC... its pretty fricken special! They had a camera on the room of the conference building and the amount of detail was just breathtaking. Im not convinced on the whole 22.2 speaker sound system though... it was barely different to 5.1.

    According to the guys at the show, transmission is acheived by splitting the signal up into multiple H.264 1080P signals and then recombining them at the other end.

    Beat me to it so I shall instead re-enact the event with the use of this handy smilie:



    It is very, very cool, but I can't help but question the need for / use of it...

    Ah, now this is clever. It means current broadcast infrastructure can be used for Super Hi-Vision, this will be a significant advantage when it comes to getting this from research to consumers.

    And yes, I do believe this will eventually hit consumers.



    Oh and this:

    Re: News - BBC broadcasts gig in Super Hi-Vision

    thought this res was originally going to be marketed as Ultra HD? and scheduled to come out after 3dtv had gained ground so not to flood the market before they had made money on 3d

    maybe the beeb may be competing for a format war if above assumption was correct

    That may still be the case.

    Super Hi-Vision has been around for a while, 2003 by the looks of things:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_hi_vision

    It could easily go through a name change before it hits consumers.

    Re: News - BBC broadcasts gig in Super Hi-Vision

    UHD is 4k i believe. This is 8K

    3D is a total FAD IMO. I wont be buying into it at all but this has some pretty big implications for broadcast. I don't see it being used as a standard broadcast signal, there is just too much money in filling the spectrum with cheap and crap channels!
    Personally i think something like this could have potential to save Cinema's. I would definitely go down to the cinema to watch the olympics or something similar if i could do it in 4k upwards! Somewhere like that where you have a massssssiivvveeee screen and the extra resolution is actually decernable.

    Live fibre network connecting cinema's and other big screen d-projector public locations + live events = the future!

    Re: News - BBC broadcasts gig in Super Hi-Vision

    Ah, see I thought that because the level of HD is classed by the vertical resolution (720p or 1080p etc) that 4k was also the vertical resolution. So 4k is the hoizonatal resolution then?

    This makes Super Hi Vision even more impressive then.
