Media 2020 Conference: Looking at UHDTV Production in 2020

In the future TV broadcasting will see a high degree of development, rising  from 4 to 16 times more vivid pictures.But that will come at a higher cost. Elena Spanily, International Relations Expert, Romanian Television has said that she is a great defender of the TV set, although television has actually lost the race with technology. Upon the appearance of mobile phones, tablets and other devices some said that television has no future. A couple of years ago the Americans said that the TV is dead as doorknob.

Actually the TV is not dead at all. Because people do not come back home and watch a movie on a tablet or something.Young people watch TV, even those who are not that young watch news or other things, but nobody is watching movies on mobile phones. For this reason I am a great defender of the TV screen which eventually proved to be enduring, Mrs Elena Spanily also added.

Jun Ogawa, Deputy Chief Officer for International Affairs, President`s Office, Tokyo Broadcasting System, Japan said in 2012 the Olympic games were broadcast in 4 K, in 2016 experiments will be made for 8 K broadcasts while in 2020 sporting events will be aired in 16 K.

According to David Lowen, Chairman, International TV and Media Consulting LTD TV screens tend to become too big for households though.
