If 4K is Good, and 8K is Better, is 16K Best?

November 3, 2015 in Employee Spotlight, Industry, Interviews, News by Lucas Bischofberger


Another great contribution from our very own Paul Turner!


One thing we know to be constant in our industry is that there is always going to be change. We’ve moved from black and white to color to digital to HD, in the constant desire to bring higher and higher fidelity images to the home. Now we’re hearing about 4K/UHDTV (these are not quite the same, but we’ve had that discussion) and beyond – the Japanese broadcasters – and specifically NHK – have announced that they intend to broad cast the 2020 Olympics in 8K resolution.

These new captioning requirements will extend the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) and are developing at a time when audiences are watching less content over cable (or over the air) and more content on internet-enabled devices (what we call over-the-top or “OTT”).

What on Earth is “Drop Frame Timecode?”

September 1, 2015 in Industry, News, Tips and Tricks by Lucas Bischofberger

TimecodeAnother great contribution from our very own Paul Turner!

It All Has to do With the History of NTSC

The idea of timecode has been around since the very earliest days of TV, and has its origins in the idea of keycode in film negatives. The idea is simply to uniquely identify any individual frame in a piece of media. A simple frame count would do this, but few people could envision where, in time, frame 213,452 is. So timecode uses the idea of a frame identifier being designated in HH:MM:SS:FF, frame 213,452 translates to 01:58:35:02 (at 30 frames per second). Read the rest of this entry →

4K vs. UHD – Are They the Same?

July 15, 2015 in Industry, News, Production, Tips and Tricks by Lucas Bischofberger

UHDAnother great contribution from our very own Paul Turner!

The Future of Resolution

You can’t have failed to notice that the volume of traffic discussing 4K/UHD video has increased considerably recently. Specifically, many TV manufacturers have been proclaiming that 2016 will be the year in which higher resolution screens will become the norm (if you remember, they did this with higher frame rate sets a couple of years ago – regardless of the fact that in reality, the only video you can watch at these higher frame rates comes from video gaming consoles).
