Thursday 5 April 2018 | 12:00 CET | News
The Convergence TV project said it demonstrated what it calls the world first scalable high efficiency video coding (SHVC) based HD/UHD hybrid delivery at NAB 2018. The demonstration involved the delivery of a full UHDTV service using an ATSC 3.0 broadcast path for distributing a regular HD service (2K + HDR) and an ATSC 3.0 broadband path for enhancing the service from HD to UHDTV (4K + HDR). Samsung supports the project by providing the ATSC 3.0 TV set for the backward compatibility demonstration.
