Arqiva publishes new UHD TV/HEVC White Paper

Arqiva4KArqiva has announced the publication of a White Paper, entitled ‘UHD TV Contribution Services and the Use of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)’. In the newly written document Arqiva Technology Specialist, Satellite & Media, Mike Walsh, shares the company’s findings with regard to supporting the carriage and transportation of UHD content in real-time in a distribution context.

The paper discusses different encoding technologies, quality vs. bitrate, modulation schemes aggressive roll-offs, different manufacturers’ current positions, and also maps compressed bit-rate to RF bandwidth, making recommendations for fractional transponder usage.

It presents not only a comprehensive review by Arqiva of current UHD technology developments, but also the outcome and findings of testing in 2016; it is the latter which is expected to be of the greatest value and relevance to the reader.

The White Paper runs to 11 pages and can be freely downloaded as a PDF here:
