More than just another resolution?
There are many ways to improve picture quality; one is to display images with a 4K/UHD resolution, where there are four times more pixels than HD on the screen. Another is High Dynamic Range (or HDR) which helps produce ‘better’ pixels.
Transitioning to HDR TV is the biggest change to television since the introduction of colour 50 years ago.
Are you ready for 4K/UHD & HDR?
The latest 4K/UHD content with HDR brings with it demands for switching and distribution systems that not only deliver digital video signals with the highest bandwidth yet but must also comply with industry standard copy protection measures.
To enable you to better understand these new technologies, the issues and the solutions, RGB have published “4K Uncovered” – available now to download here for free – and introduced a new training course at RGB Academy.
New “4K & HDR Essentials” training course
This one-day course will introduce you to 4K/UHD and HDR basics, switching and distribution, installing and troubleshooting.
It is suitable for sales or technical people wishing to learn the essentials of HDMI matrix switching and long distance transmission of 4K and HDR video.
Did you know that 4K/UHD products currently use one of three HDMI connectivity standards:
|4K/UHD Video “Lite”
|4K/UHD Video “HDR”
|HDMI 1.4 or 2.0a/b with no HDCP||
|HDMI 1.4 with HDCP 2.2||
|HDMI 2.0a/b with HDCP 2.2||
