Advances on Hybridcast Services for 8K Displays

Interactive services for large ultra-high-definition screens

Outline

Towards the launch of Hybridcast services for 8K Super Hi-Vision (8K), we are studying next-generation interactive services that take advantage of the large, ultra-high-definition display environment of 8K broadcasting. This exhibit introduces you to new ways of enjoying broadcast services using highly immersive video.

Features

●Fine-grained, beautiful applications

The 8K broadcasting environment compatible HTML5 browser can simultaneously play back multiple ultra-high-definition videos together with fine-grained presentations of Hybridcast applications.

●New layouts on a screen

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.

●Easy and smooth operation

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.

Future plans

We are continuing with our R&D on broadcasting systems for Hybridcast services in preparation for the start of 8K test broadcasting in 2016.
