Did you think that everything was said in streaming video? 4K streaming still has a way to go

Full HD resolution has been dominant until recently on our televisions. A resolution that little by little is leaving room for TVs and UHD monitors. And yet when a good part of the market is getting used to these acronyms, there is still a long way to go in this way. In fact we are already thinking about the next step if we refer to streaming video with the highest quality.

And it is that the Ultra HD Forum has published the notes referring to the «Phase B» with which detail the advantages that may offer companies who want to get on the bandwagon of streaming in 4K format.

So when talking about streaming in 4K video rates come to light ranging from 100 to 120 FPS with a backup of 60 FPS. A transmission that must have support for Dolby Vision and SL-HDR in relation to the video while the sound must have Dolby AC-4 and MPEG-H.

This translates into greater bandwidth and this is where the AV1 video format we talked about a few hours ago can come into play. A codec that will allow the higher quality of video and audio to circulate through lower bandwidth.

In addition, the Ultra HD Forum will bet on Content Aware Encoding so that providers of video transmission services and equipment manufacturers offer compatibility so that they can support the new needs that lie ahead.
