Course Overview

The present and future of the UHD format from camera to display

As Media and Entertainment begins to broadly embrace UHD, Engineers and Technicians need to understand next-generation video formats, so they’re better prepared to lead change and growth in their organizations. This course will give you both the technical background and the practical skills to handle the UHD format across the entire content creation and distribution workflow. You’ll gain a broad working knowledge of UHD acquisition, format conversion, compression and distribution, display and interfacing. And you’ll improve your ability to discuss the technical aspects of UHD with your team, and communicate effectively about related technologies and workflows.

  • Understand the different elements of UHD acquisition, including cameras, sensors, lenses, sampling formats, bit rates, and storage requirements 
  • Recognize the benchmarks and connection formats of UHD signal management
  • Perform UHD signal conversion, formatting, and content distribution using the appropriate formats, color conversion techniques, bit rates, codecs and content distribution methods 
  • Ensure that your organization performs critical processing tasks correctly and uses the appropriate standards to support transport and display of UHD content.
  • Differentiate technologies for UHDTV displays and display enhancements, and choose the appropriate direct view or projection display for UHD viewing

Intended Audience:

  • Engineers, Technicians and Craft Engineers working in the creation of professional media
  • Technical Managers working to design and deploy UHD systems in Broadcasting, Systems Design and Integration
