2018 being considered the year of 8K, 8K SVIP gives broadcasters the tools to migrate from HD and 4K.
Image Matters has demonstrated the origami ecosystem capabilities, as well as the 8K SVIP, a European project consisting of a future-proof adaptable modular platform.
The European project, 8K SVIP, is the easy bridge to the future 8K broadcast studio. It will help broadcasters leapfrog directly from HD and 4K to 8K. We see this collaboration between Belgium and Czech Republic manufacturers and researchers as an essential step to propelling 8K broadcasting to the home. And we look forward to demonstrating our solutions at InterBee to migrate easily from HD and 4K to 8K – Jean-François Nivart, Image Matters CEO.
European collaborative group 8K SVIP is a body of four academic and industrial partners: intoPIX, Cesnet, Image Matters and AV Media.
2018 being considered the year of 8K, 8K SVIP gives broadcasters the tools to migrate from HD and 4K, and develops advanced transport technologies to manage 8K signals over SDI and IP.
The project will focus on providing solutions to real use cases experienced by live broadcasters when distributing 8K video signals. Much of the technology to achieve this is still being developed and the 8K SVIP brings an innovative design to meet the high speed and real-time requirements of 8K video transport and interface (SDI & IP).
Championing 8K, Japans NHK is already broadcasting 8K TV satellite broadcast channels. Not only are viewers benefiting from increased resolution, they are also seeing much greater vibrant colors and contrast with enhanced WGR and HDR. Tokyos 2020 Olympic Games is sure to see greater 8K content generated and broadcast.
Image Matters origami ecosystem is reportedly suited to deliver hardware solutions to meet the needs of SDI and IP interfacing at the data speeds 8K video demands. The IM-B20 module, with its Xilinx UltraScale Kintex FPGA and exclusive Z-Ray connector, provides IO to facilitate 12G SDI and SFP fiber IP.
Image Matters’ new Pay-as-You-Go website allows compression IP licenses to be sold in volumes to meet the needs of the end user, the company claims, whether this is a one off, or thousands off.
