“I am honored to have the opportunity to speak at this year’s CABSAT show,” says Edwards. “The two seminars will be vastly different, allowing me to touch on the latest trends in wireless video technology, including latency and 4K. I am excited to share my experience and knowledge in these areas with other industry professionals.”
Time Matters – The Value of Low Latency
Day 1 – March 12, 2:30PM – 4PM, Conference room in Hall 4
During this session, Edwards will dive into the factors that contribute to processing and transmission as it pertains to the complexity of video, such as HD, 4K UHD, MPEG-4, and more. These issues are most prevalent in live sports, where critical action of gameplay must be presented with no cutout. As part of his presentation, Edwards will showcase the benefits of the IMT Vislink HCAM and UltraReceiver technology with its 4K UHD resolution and single-frame latency, as compared to other solutions on the market.
4K Wireless Delivery with High Dynamic Range
Day 2 – March 13, 2:30PM – 4PM, Conference room in Hall 4
For this presentation, Edwards looks at the factors necessary for broadcasters to accomplish fulfill widespread acceptance of 4K UHD. In order to revolutionize the industry, the pros will need to implement a more immersive viewing experience, or risk losing consumers who can only attain the full effect of the resolution, by investing in larger screens or sitting closer to their TVs. During the session, Edwards will focus on the advantages of implementing IMT Vislink HDR technology to attain a broader range of luminance and contrast, which effectively present a more impressive picture.
In addition to Edwards’ presentations, IMT Vislink gear will be found at various stands throughout the show floor.
