Glasgow Games and Football Matches Streamed in UHD

Three World Cup football matches played in Brazil this summer were streamed in ultra high-definition (UHD) by the BBC.  The format, also known as 4K, offers four times the resolution of 1080p high definition video. The matches  including the final  marked one of the first times a live event has been streamed over the air in UHD in the UK.

It is hoped that this will pave the way for more widespread use of the technology. One of the biggest challenges of distributing UHD TV to the home is how to make it compatible with existing broadcast and broadband capacities.

Users need speeds of around 20Mbps (megabits per second) in order to watch 4K content without glitches. The next step  will be a trial of live broadcasting over 4G, Ultra HD and 3D audio and will be seen as part of a BBC R&D showcase in Glasgow, timed to coincide with the Commonwealth Games, which is being staged in the city.

What is the difference between LED, LCD and HD European Reseller explains to its dealers

With new technologies emerging so rapidly these days sometimes – even for those with their ear firmly to the ground – it’s difficult to remember what’s what.

So, European reseller / European dealer offers reminder of what lies behind some of those acronyms and phrases:- in monitors LED, LCD and HD.

LED – This stands for Light Emitting Diodes. When these are used to backlight a screen rather than the fluorescent lights used in traditional LCD technology, it gives designers the scope to create even slimmer and stylish screens than before. The LEDs can be positioned behind the entre panel or around the rim of the screen. There are other major advantages too; LED screens offer superb picture quality, but with less energy consumption than LCD or Plasma TV screens.

LCD – Or Liquid Crystal Display. Inside these screens, liquid crystals are used to produce bright and vivid pictures. These are sandwiched between layers of glass or plastic and become opaque when electricity is passed through – creating each pixel of colour. Screens can use both LCD and LED technology.TVSonyX9005B-lifestyle
