Interop is a key issue in Ultra HD technology from glass (camera) to glass (screen), and the Forum with its member companies has had this focus right from the start and over the last six years we have applied our efforts to HDMI signaling, HDR decode, HFR production, HFR distribution and Static/Dynamic Metadata handling. For the last six months we have been looking at Interoperability in OTT (Over The Top) – looking at how Ultra HD content is handled by the end-to-end ecosystem of OTT streaming providers with particular focus on the handling of the last mile and the delivery to the screen. The work is far from finished but the learnings that we will present are the state-of-the-art understanding of the challenges and opportunities for Ultra HD technologies in streaming services to the consumer. Come along to see where we are and what the future holds.
