What's next for Ultra-HD TV?

The first Ultra-HD sets simply increased the resolution, but the new format offers much more to television audiences. Both high dynamic range and a wider colour gamut are features of the latest TV sets in the shops.

At the Midlands event in mid-January, Salmon, lead research engineer at BBC R&D, discussed the principles of Ultra-HD television and, in particular, the greater range of colours – the wider colour gamut – available on new TV sets.
