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).

Video Over IP – What Does it Mean?

May 29, 2015 in News by Lucas Bischofberger

IPAnother great contribution from our very own Paul Turner!

Video over IP

Everywhere you turn right now, you’ll run into the term “Video over IP”. The problem with the term is that it means different things to different people, which can make information sharing a little difficult. I thought it might be good to discuss the different interpretations of the term, so you can decide what you think it means, and be prepared when someone else uses it in another context.

IP stands for “Internet Protocol”, and IP is the backbone for how the internet and most any network delivers data.  However, in our industry, most people associate Video-over-IP as either:

  1. Live video “signals” being pushed over Ethernet as a replacement for baseband SDI.
  2. File-based media that has been created or captured and is then transferred between systems, over a network, as individual frames, clips or programs.
