Tuesday 4 February         Meet Barbara Lange SMPTE Executive Director at this meeting
Mike Knee Consultant Engineer Live TV Technology Development at Snell will be presenting His IBC award winning paper- THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY SUBSCRIBED

Today’s broadcast video content is being viewed on the widest range of display devices ever known, from small phone screens and legacy standard definition TV sets to enormous 4K and 8KUHDTVdisplays.The growth in size and resolution is happening alongside many other improvements, in grey-scale resolution, colorimetry, 3D and, especially, higher frame rates. These developments mean that the requirements for very high quality, artefact free conversion in resolution and frame rate have become more important than ever.


The challenge is given a further dimension by the wider range of content that can appear on large screens, from up converted archive footage to the much more detailed, wider window on the world made possible by the new large formats.


This paper presents cutting-edge algorithms for motion compensated processing to meet these challenges in both live TV and file-based operation. One size no longer fits all, so this paper also discusses how to achieve a balance across the range of processing complexity and performance; showing how the trade-offs can be managed gracefully and optimally.

Please register promptly
