UHD will change living room TV forever, if we fix customer-facing interop issues first (Update: Atmos working)

@nebul2′s NAB 2016 Journal (UHD, HDR, VR, All-IP)

Las Vegas was again focused on UHD in 2016, at least through my eayes. The four Keywords I came away with were 1: UHD (again), 2: HDR, but also 3: VR and 4: All-IP production. Of course other things like drones were important, but I’m not a real journalist, I don’t know how to write

My Ultra High Definition #NAB15

There is always plenty to see at NAB and if I liked Las Vegas, I’d surely come more often. But the last time I was here was in 2001 when the show was dubbed the convergence NAB. I’m going again this year for one main reason: Ultra HD. Sure 4K has been a key topic
