If arriving by tube, the nearest station is Oxford Circus.
If arriving by car, parking is available in nearby side roads, however at a hefty rate of £4.90 per hour as the location is right next to Oxford Street shops!
With higher resolution, wider colour gamut and extended dynamic range, the new Ultra High Definition TV (UHD) standards define a container which allows content creators to offer the consumer a much more immersive visual experience. However there are some artefacts noted within the container particularly around HDR material. Olie Bauman outlines why YCrCb are used and the human vision systems response to changes in chroma / luminance and the Correlation between R, G and B.
As HDR and WCG expand the Colour Volumes he will show why thse increased from SD (601) to HD (709) to UHD (2020) and show the difference between PQ (Display Referred) and HLG (Scene Referred ) workflows.
From this background he will show examples of artefacts due to Chroma down sampling and show the different characteristics – depending on work flow.
He highlights that the problems will become greater as more content exploiting the full UHD container becomes available, requiring additional care and processing in content production and delivery.
The buzz of the industry for the last few years has undoubtedly been ‘the cloud’,
a term that is much used and often abused. Customer dialogue often begins with wanting
to move services to the public cloud but without the full appreciation of the implications,
timescales, security issues and costs.
This presentation will explore developments in software-defined solutions for playout
and automation, the challenges in virtualising them, the considerations required to
move these services onto the public cloud and the benefits/trade-offs thereof.
