TELEVISION – WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Broadcasters, platform operators, giant social media companies, telecoms companies – they all share the still large sums of money flowing from those who consume media on the many screen devices.

So who’s on the up, who’s going down? What’s the ultimate effect of the online revolution? Which sectors have the best plan for the future?  Who’s coming up with the ideas that will spell success and revenue in the years to come?

Are we ready for UHD?

Ultra High Definition is much talked about but rarely understood. With OTT providers now running these high definition services over the internet, and UK broadcasters already trialling broadcast services, we ask: is this a game changer or just another upgrade?

Chaired by Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO of the DTG,  our panel of technical and production experts examine what makes UHD ultra, what it takes to make and deliver and, of course, do the viewers care anyway?  

What actually is Ultra High Definition TV? Richard Salmon - BBC

UHDTV is about more than just increasing the resolution of the TV signal.  Higher frame rates, improved audio, wider colour-space, greater bit-depth and higher dynamic range are moving us towards the next broadcast systems. The speakers are heavily involved in agreeing international standards as the final pieces of the jigsaw are being put together. Their presentation will include demonstrations of higher frame rates and higher dynamic range TV.
