Astro Design Updates on 8K in Sports
Astro Design highlights in a discussion with Sports Video Group (SVG) News that it has been working on 8K for more than a decade. 8K video systems can deliver a real change in sports entertainment video. In the past 3G SDI was used as an interface with many cables, but this is now down to four cables. The move to IP video is supported by new 8K gateways and JPEG-XS encoding and decoding. Astro Design also highlights how it can capture an entire field of play and then extract a lower resolution segment of the image and emulate a camera operator. 8K can capture all the action which allows replays and reviews of all the action.
