    The UltraHD Forum is an open forum composed of a broad range of participants from the movie and television ecosystem with a mission to support the roll out of UltraHD services.  As part of that mission, the Guidelines Working Group has developed a compendium of technical information on the best practice implementations of UHD workflows and technologies. 

    During this presentation, we will have the experts describe what is in the Guidelines and why this information is vital to any organization implementing or thinking of implementing an UltraHD service.  Topics covered include the definition of Ultra HD video and its various elements such as HDR, Wide Color, High Frame Rate as well as Next Generation Audio.  Our focus is on the impact to live-linear channels delivered over cable, satellite, terrestrial television as well as streaming video services.

    Bill’s career has always mixed technology and entertainment.  He earned a Master’s in Engineering from UCLA, while an electronic propmaker for Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers at Universal Studios.  As Director of Technology for Disney Imagineering and Virtual World Entertainment, he researched, developed, and fielded simulator ride systems and virtual reality attractions.  At Technicolor, digital cinema provided the context where an interest in standards led him to join SMPTE, eventually becoming a SMPTE Fellow.  Now as InterDigital’s Director of Standards for Immersive Media Technologies, Bill contributes to next-generation television systems.  Bill holds 72 issued U.S. patents relating to digital cinema, virtual & augmented reality, media production, distributed network streaming, displays, online communities, mobile content distribution, exercise tracking, and electric vehicle infrastructure.  His favorite two:  A roller coaster you design then ride and a keyboard for dolphins to communicate with people – both really worked and both were commercially successful.
