I've worked on a few installs of 4K monitoring/grading environments
and we resorted to Octo-Link HDSDI to achieve 4 x 2048 x 1080 making
up a quadrant-based, 444, 4096 x 2160 image. Obviously, Octo-link
HDSDI is less than ideal. And dual-dual DVI can be 4096 x 2160 but is
still 8-bit in it's native specification.
Does anyone know if SMPTE, Texas Instruments, Sony, Christie or Barco
is working on a protocol for uncompressed 4K transmission?
With the coming 4K DLP chip from TI it seems like the way we transmit
4K data to a 4K projector could be greatly improved. Why not some
sort of 8GB+ Fiber-Link?
Just wanted to open the discussion in hopes that someone is working on
What's the word?
