4K, the evolution of Television
The prospects for a new way of watching TV
More pixels or best quality pixels? The problems of a higher resolution signal against an improved quality signal. The challenges of Rai and Reserch Centre towards a high technical quality television.
High Dynamic Range
The evolution of television signal: same definition, best pixels
The High Dynamic Range allows a significantly improved image. The pixels that compose the image are high quality compared to the current pixels, with more information content. The signal reproduced on the new HDR screens is more dynamic and therefore with a much higher brightness, as well as with a superior detail perception.
Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality
A new technology able to, among other things, to involve more the television audience.
Webcams and sophisticated array of microphones, directly integrated into televisions, allow you to use your voice to turn on and turn off the TV, turn on one application or another, search for content without having to type text on the handset or use a hand motion to scroll through a menu and, for example, choose a content. The trend would seem, therefore, to enable the user interaction that is the most immediate and natural as possible.
IP - based Systems and Technologies for Television Production
This programme deals with the experimentation of new IP technologies (networks, protocols, standards, equipment) in the area of television production, and particularly for studio applications.
