UHD Alliance defines Ultra HD Premium specifications

UHD Alliance defines Ultra HD Premium specifications

Despite being with us for more than 30 years TV sets, computer monitors and all kinds of displays share a common trend – their working resolutions constantly increase much to the satisfaction of end users. The same is true for Ultra HD – while most people still do not own an Ultra HD display, the specifications for its successor – Ultra HD Premium – have been decided on.

Of course this has been done by the members of the UHD Alliance so now what does it take to certify a device as Ultra HD Premium ready? For a device to be Ultra HD Premium certified, it needs to support a certain resolution, offer high dynamic range, certain peak brightness levels as well as strict color coverage. Moreover Ultra HD Premium goes to the sound department as well – this certification requires better sound than before. The ultimate goal here is to immerse viewers so deep in the content so that they can actually believe what they see is happening before them.

The first Ultra HD Premium-certified devices will likely appear this year.
