Date added: 04/14/2015 The Truth is Out About 4K Distribution

It's time to re-think 4K content distribution.

Our recent three-part installment of the "Truth About 4K" overview has garnered increased attention among our readers, bringing to light currently known challenges and answers to 4K connectivity. Now, as pro-AV markets embrace the shift to 4K distributed environments, "4K support" has become one the biggest competitive advantages among manufacturers. 

In a state where Ultra HD must coexist alongside 1080/Full HD infrastructures, designing a future-proof 4K ecosystem requires high performance scaling solutions to handle the various resolutions, as well as a data processor (HDMI 2.0) that can pass the high bandwidth content without failure. 

With so much uncertainty about new technologies, it is important to know what your options are. 

 

4K Distribution - The Good, the Bad, and the Scalable Truth
 

While 4K TVs have gone mainstream, content is still catching up, and there will be a mix of 1080p and 4K devices in most Pro-AV infrastructures. Adding to the challenges of Ultra HD/4K adoption in matrix-switched environments was the absence of... read more» 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

4K Distribution - The Good, the Bad, and the Distant Truth
 

Typical HD video applications in markets such as medical, education, corporate IT, and broadcast, require managing multiple signals over long distances without losing signal integrity – a challenge that is magnified by 4K integration. While 4K video delivers... read more»
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

4K/60 - The Inconvenient Truth
 

The shift to HDMI 2.0 is a game changer as the bandwidth has nearly doubled from HDMI 1.4, allowing for up to 4K at 60 Hz video timing with a 4:4:4 color space. However, at the time of its release in September 2013, no chips or hardware actually supported the higher 18-Gbps/600MHz... read more»
