Event Details: 

4K and now HDR are the hot topics du jour. But if we switch on new services what happens to the current ones?

Mark Horton  takes us on  a journey through this topic where not everything is necessarily what it seems, covering 4K, HDR, WCG, HFR and more.

Mark has provided this white paper as a aide memoire to some of what he talked about!

Although Registration has closed with well over 60 we can squeeze in RTS members for their AGM and a few others - so please just turn up!
