Ultra HDTV Definition:
Ultra HDTV (Ultra High Definition Television) is a digital video format, currently proposed under the leadership of NHK Science and Technical Research Laboratories (Nippon Hoso Kyokai, also called the Japan Broadcasting Corporation). If you hear about ultra high definition video, you are probably hearing a reference to this same technology, and also if someone says Super hi-vision (SHV), UHDTV, 4320p or UHDV. There are many versions of these technology terms, either hyphenated, combined and/or capitalized in varying ways. Ultra HDTV is 16 times the resolution of HDTV (high definition television).
Ultra HDTV resolution = 7680 x 4320 (16 x HDTV resolution).
IMAX has roughly exactly the same resolution as UHDTV. Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) (2560×1440) and Quad Full High Definition (QFHD) (3840×2160) aren't the same resolution as that of UHDTV and represent intermediate resolutions mid-way between those of HDTV and Ultra HDTV.
The Ultra HDTV Technology:
Ultra HDTV's goal is to create a vivid, television-watching experience, where the lines of realism and tv are blurred. Based on manufacturers, people will watch ultra high definition TV and feel like they're in the middle of a scene. Sound quality will most likely improve as well, with numbers such as 24 audio channels being tossed about. One of the bottlenecks with the new format lies in the cameras that must produce images of sufficient quality. There are very few cameras of this type at the moment. Those that can produce sufficient images will only process a couple of minutes of usable image so the start-to-finish structure is definitely not in place at this stage.
Ultra HDTV come to be the standard in personal entertainment?
Most industry observers answer “Yes” when asked that question. Television manufacturers are making plasma and liquid crystal display TV equipment with flat panel screens, as most of us know. These are designed with Ultra HDTV as future standard in television viewing. So, if you're one of several consumers who would like to be a first-adopter of new technology, start preparing you home entertainment system with a plasma or LCD screen and a surround sound system to complement the improved audio. If past experience is any indication the question about Ultra HDTV should not be “if” but “when.”
