4K TV capture, an early experience sharing


Abstract:
As the French public broadcaster, editor of 13 channels, 4 of which HD, francetélévisions studies 4KTV broadcasting scenarios for its premium programs. Enhancing the sense of realness, the viewing comfort and creating an immersive experience, such is the quest of any incumbent broadcaster looking to embrace the future of television. francetélévisions has undertaken 4K/60p production experiments to evaluate future workflows, and specifically work on adapting filming methods and materials. The Quality of Experience is evaluated taking into account the impact of compression on both 4K digital content and scanned films, with a specific attention to noise levels. After providing an early first report of available 4K cameras suitable for TV applications, the impact of compression technology on different types of 4k content will be presented, with a particular focus on HEVC (High-Efficiency Video Coding) codec as the natural compression standard for upcoming 4KTV applications.
