Interactive services for large ultra-high-definition screens
The 8K broadcasting environment compatible HTML5 browser can simultaneously play back multiple ultra-high-definition videos together with fine-grained presentations of Hybridcast applications.
Hybridcast applications flexibly lay out various content elements on a large ultra-high-definition screen. This feature makes possible new viewing experiences, for example, clipping part of an immersive 8K video or presenting 8K video together with information from the Internet.
For stress-free operation of applications laid out on a large screen, a new user interface is required. Here, viewers can use companion devices as smartphones and tablets to perform a range of easy and intuitive operations.
We are continuing with our R&D on broadcasting systems for Hybridcast services in preparation for the start of 8K test broadcasting in 2016.
