Ultra High Definition TeleVision

The race to release Ultra HD TV is on, with all eyes on the World Cup and the Olympics. The road to UHD TV in the home is far from clear and industry agrees that UHD will need more than simply increased resolution.

It is therefore vital that the full UHD TV ecosystem comes together at the DTG to discuss and agree on the UK requirements for UHD profiles and ensure there is a common understanding between content providers, platforms, CE manufacturers, retailers and silicon providers.

This will put the UK TV market in the best position to capitalise on the opportunities that Ultra HD promises.
