This year's Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) Symposium, entitled 'Next-Generation Imaging Formats: More, Faster, and Better Pixels,' will feature a complementary 4K/UHD demo area.
Organised by Insight Media in collaboration with SMPTE, the 4K/UHD demo area will showcase various image processing and scaling engines and their ability to produce 4K/UHD content from lower-resolution sources, as well as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) codec demos to showcase the quality possible at various bit rates for delivery of 4K content.
Participants will include industry leaders such as Altera®, Canon, Cisco®, Colorfront, Elemental Technologies, Quantel, Rovi, Samsung, Sony, and Video Clarity.
"The SMPTE Symposium's 4K/UHD demo area offers visitors a unique opportunity to see just how well the latest scaling and encoding technologies deliver 4K content, and to assess the quality of native 4K and processed content side by side on a variety of the latest 4K displays," said Barbara Lange, executive director at SMPTE.
"With this valuable perspective on the maturity of 4K-focused technology, content providers will be much better positioned to make strategic decisions about their own approach to 4K implementation and service offerings," added Chris Chinnock, president of Insight Media.
The demo will help to address the concern that the current dearth of 4K native content might prevent the rollout of 4K products and services.
A demonstration of the HEVC codec will offer a possible solution for the delivery of 4K content not only within production facilities, but also to the home. In addition, a team from Canon, Colorfront, and Quantel will showcase live and file-based 4K production workflows.
The SMPTE 2013 Symposium is a one-day seminar with a deep topical focus. The SMPTE 2013 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition runs from Oct. 22-24. Both events take place at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, Calif.
