ITU sets Ultra HD standards

With live trials at the Olympics, the ITU has defined the UHDTV standards, 4K and 8K, as multiples of 1080p1920 format

Re: ITU sets Ultra HD standards

Interesting. Thanks for posting. Glad to see the higher frame rates included. This caught my attention:

"an 8K programme running at the full 120 frames per second would require 320 times the bit rate of current HD transmissions"

Broadcast data and IT managers are spitting their coffee out all over the world... ;)

Re: ITU sets Ultra HD standards

I would be OK with content providers offering 10 solid channels with something actually worth watching instead of 200 channels of crap.

Maybe UHD can be a way to weed out some of the worthless TV.

So the RED cameras and Sony F65 can pull off those kinds of resolution and frame rate figures; but who's going to be using them to shoot regular programming? Cinema only fills a niche in the grand scheme of things.

This has more "cool" going for it than common sense given that you need a huge TV and need to sit close to make use of higher-than-HD.

How was that figure arrived at? A 7,680 x 4,320 8K frame has 16 times the pixels of a 1080p frame, and 120 fps is 4.8 times 25 fps; 16 x 4.8 = 76.8, not 320. Am I missing something?
