The 2014 version of the NAB Show made it clear, if anyone was still doubting it, that ultra high definition will be the point at which manufacturers will concentrate for years to come.
All companies showed 4K products. Some with significant advances of the developments presented in 2013 and others caught up and presented for the first time their equipment under this technology. There was a lot to be surprised and learned.
But within the framework of all these advances, there is a question that I heard several times among the attendees of the fair in Las Vegas and that is whether today you really have a standard that allows a channel to produce in 4K. The truth is that yes, several manufacturers have their workflows that allow them to make a production, but each one is different, there is no standard and that could generate some conflict for the channels when it comes to the technological update.
As far as Latin America is concerned, 4K will still take a few years to arrive, because many channels are still recovering their investments to adopt high-definition technology, in addition to the difficulties that would arise at the time of transmission due to the bandwidth required.
The aspects that remain to be defined about 4K are normal in a process of developing a standard that will impact the industry in general, as is this one. And with industry efforts focused on researching and deploying ultra-high definition, they will surely be resolved in a short time.
