Ultra HD group outlines next generation of 4K TV broadcasts

The concept of 4K TV broadcasting is only just getting off the ground, but its overseers are already planning for what comes next. The Ultra HD Forum has published its first “Phase B” guidelines detailing what companies should aim for with future 4K broadcast tech. Not surprisingly, high frame rates should play a major role — the group is hoping for 100FPS and 120FPS video (depending on the region) with a fallback for 60FPS. It’s also pushing for dynamic HDR video through formats like Dolby Vision and SL-HDR, while Dolby AC-4 and MPEG-H would provide audio that could adapt from elaborate 3D sound setups to a plain set of headphones.
