The German TV Platform – a digital media trade body – will hold a UHD demonstration at the upcoming consumer electronics trade show IFA 2018 in Berlin. A series of clips in SDR and HDR/HLG format will be looped on a 77″ UHD TV, offering visitors an ultra-high definition viewing experience with extremely brilliant, high-contrast images.
Technology firm Rohde & Schwarz will support this demo with its R&S VENICE 4K ingest and playout platform, R&S AVHE100 encoding and multiplexing solution and R&S SFC multistandard modulator. 4K material will be played out via the R&S VENICE 4K ingest and playout platform and transferred with HDR metadata to the R&S AVHE100 encoding and multiplexing solution. The R&S AVHE100 will encode the video data in the efficient HEVC format, create a multiplex and transmit it to the R&S SFC multistandard modulator. The modulated signal will be fed to a TV and displayed.
