8K TV: The Current State of Play

Chris Chinnock of the 8K Association spoke to IBC365 and summarized the state of play in 8K at the end of 2022. Although the set market is still small for 8K, the trend to bigger sizes will require more resolution over time. Better codecs will help adoption, but this will mainly come via OTT delivered by broadband or 5G. There are also specialist uses in sports, for VR, and for cultural artifacts (as NHK recently highlighted). He also summarizes the actions that the 8KA is taking on capture guidelines and display certification. The IBC365 article (need a free account) is here.
