BBC to stream World Cup matches in 4K ultra HD

BBC has announced that it is going to stream the World Cup matches live on 4k UHD. The 4k displays have the ability of generate four times the resolution of 1080p high definition video and according to BBC three important matches will be live-streamed on this format. These matches will be the quarter final and the final and this would be the first time that any match would be streamed live on UHD in the UK. However, they will only be made available to a limited number of TVs at BBC site but we are hopeful that following this use of the platform, it is going to head down to a more widespread acceptance.

There are however going to be certain challenges if this platform is ever to be made available to the public. First of all, bringing the UHD TVs to homes is not so easy because they will not be compatible with the existing broadcast and broadband capacities. This is because a speed as high as 20Mbps is required to watch any 4k content smoothly. BBC has had experiences with such projects and it has worked with Japanese broadcaster NHK on such trials. The basic idea involved here is to have the live streams sent through satellite from Brazil, and then distributed via Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) and Internet Protocol (IP).

Toby Syfret, an analyst at Enders research group said "It's a good idea for the BBC to trial these things and the results on a large screen look impressive but it also needs to be realistic about the potential to push this across current broadcast networks."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
