|This white paper will provide an overview of a range of video enhancements that are emerging now in the consumer TV and professional AV industries. These are collectively called “better pixels” as they will improve the viewing experience – in some cases, quite dramatically.
The objective of the paper is to define what these “better pixel” features are, how they will benefit professional users and the implications for the entire content-to-display pipeline. The key professional application for video content today is cinema, so we will mostly focus on this. However, the technology is starting to spread to other advanced professional markets like simulation, medical, military, etc. – which is why this paper is important
While the focus of the paper is on professional projection, no discussion of better pixels can take place without an understanding of the consumer television market and how better pixels are expected to be adopted there. In reality, the consumer TV and professional AV markets are pushing each other in the development, standardization and deployment of better pixel hardware and software.
