Future 4K TV broadcasts to offer 4K 100/120FPS, and more

'Phase B' guidelines of 4K TV tease 100-120FPS video, dynamic HDR, and so much more

The dream of 4K TV would be to have 120FPS and HDR in the future, and it seems we will with the latest "Phase B" guidelines from the Ultra HD Forum.


The group recently published their "Phase B" guidelines that tease a world of next-gen 4K broadcast technology, ushering in 100-120FPS video, with a fallback to 60FPS. On top of that, the group is wanting dynamic HDR video through the likes of Dolby Vision and SL-HDR, while Dolby AC-4 and MPEG-H would take care of the audio side of things.

4K 120FPS video with HDR and higher-quality audio is going to blow out the bandwidth, so the Forum is hoping Content Aware Encoding will drop those requirements.
