Your facts are based on news reports? ROFLMAO!!! The only item that is not available is the h.265, because it hasn't been released. The other items are available now.
Just need to deal with the companies that develop the product. Know a little a bit about satellites and how to setup a system.

Cripes! How obtuse can you be! rolleyes.gif

THERE ARE NO 2160P SATELLITE TRANSMISSONS BEING DONE TODAY.

And none of your links says any different. I would laugh but your sheer obstinance is nothing short of pitiful.

Why would there be any 2160p satellite broadcast today. There are no direct view 4K available to purchase yet and Sony has sold maybe a few hundred thousand 4K projectors world wide.

Sony has demo 2160p 4K satellite transmissions using existing h.264 at 50 Mbps and fully expects h.265 to cut it down to 20 Mbps. So obviously there are no technical hurdles to overcome. It will just take a few years until it will be financially it worth for DirecTV/Dish to start transmitting. It will take almost the same space as broadcasting a regular 1080p channel. The content from the studios will already be in 4K so DirecTV and DIsh cost will be the same as broadcasting a HD signal. ESPN will probably also be one of the first to make investment in 4K/8K cameras and could start send out 4K material also in the next few years.

The Sony 4K over satellite demonstration at IBC was in collaboration with SES/Astra.
Quote:

SES worked in collaboration with Sony to transmit live 4K content at the show. The dedicated video channel was uplinked from the SES headquarters in Luxembourg via the ASTRA Satellite System. The 4K programming, captured with a Sony F65 camera, was encoded and played out in the “Quad HD” format in the Sony and SES exhibit booths, using the H.264 compression standard, at a data rate of 50 Mb/s.

Quote:

Sony Corp prototyped a system that enables to transmit 4k (3,840 x 2,160-pixel) video in real time via a satellite connection.

The company demonstrated the transmission of 4k video at IBC 2012, which runs from Sept 6 to 11, 2012, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This is the first time that such a transmission has been demonstrated in public.

Sony realized the system in collaboration with SES S.A., a Luxembourg-based major satellite distribution firm. From a base of SES in Luxembourg, an edited 4k video content was transmitted in the "DVB-S2" format via a satellite. With the H.264 technology, the 4k video was compressed to 50Mbps.

The real-time 4k video transmission system announced this time has a transmission rate of 50Mbps with the H.264 technology. But Sony aims to increase the compression rate to realize a transmission rate of 10M to 20Mbps. Also, for satellite connection, it plans to enable a two-channel transmission with one transponder.

You mean a few thousand right?. No way they have sold more than that. Not at $25,000 each.

Wrong! Do you realize that 4k is transmitted via satellite to theaters? The first transmission was done in 2004.

http://www.cbc-raleigh.com/capcom/news/2004/microspace_04/digital_cinema_delivery/digital_cinema_delivery.htm

Sony is also involved with Microspace as well.

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/sony-selects-microspace-to-deliver-first-4k-digital-feature-via-satellite-52153247.html

Then you have lot of testing for UHDTV 4k via satellite. Here is a paper of a test in 2008. Yes, it UHDTV via KA band. I hope you poster realize on the investment that is being made with UHDTV, it is most likely in the Billions. None of you seem to realize on

http://arc.aiaa.org/doi/abs/10.2514/6.2011-8044

Another article, but does show another 4k TV, that has been out since 2010. http://www.tvtechnology.com/article/focusing-on-uhdtv/214105

Actually, there is quite a few brands other than Sony that have 4k now. Here is a monitor that was sold in 2010. http://www.tvlogicusa.com/product/product.php?model=LQM-071W#
Astrodesign had monitors and several other companies. Panasonic Pro had that 152 Plasma monitor. http://www.panasonic.com/business/Plasma/3D/3D-Plasma-TH-152UX1.asp
It was rather expensive at 500K each. Here is one being installed in New York.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjj6c5oXZo8

We are talking about 4K content that would be available to CONSUMERS. And today . . . that doesn't exist.

Try leaving the goalposts where they are instead of moving them miles apart just so you can avoid being proven wrong.

I own Professional equipment, and so does many on this forum. The quality is much better than consumer brand. If the consumer know about the pro equipment, then they might buy it.
There has always been two tiers to audio/video equipment.

No - consumers won't buy professional display equipment no matter how many links you show. They are frightfully expensive, have features that are specifically designed for professional applications and most of the time, use connectors that are not found on consumer grade source devices.

Showing a Sony or LG 84" 4K TV even with prices of $20,000 to $25,000 is totally different than showing a 56" 4K Monitor that sells/sold for $66,000. And once you realize that, then maybe you will stop posting the BS links to professional equipment and make believe like they are selling them to consumers.

The 4k market from 2008 to present has been in the professional market. In 2013, it is finally making it to Consumers. There is variety of buyers, so it is their decision on what to buy. Your average consumer won't be coming to avsforum, they will go to the dealer to check out the TV. The 4k TV will be sold at high end audio stores, and not you local Sam's, Walmart or Target. The high end audio video stores will show the consumer the professional models as well. My dealer showed me the Pansonic Pro's, and my dealer has given me great deals on new equipment. So, keep your opinions to yourself.

So you think that neither LG nor Sony are going to have their new 4K TVs sold at Best Buy? Mass market consumers do shop at Best Buy you know. They also shop at Sony Style Stores where I am sure Sony will have their 4K TV set up.

And it delights me to offer my opinions especially when it comes to you because you or a dozen like you do not represent a meaningful segment of the marketplace.

Best Buy Magnolia stores might have them. The regular Best Buy stores just don't seem to stock a TV that is 25K. I walk into my home theater store, and get mail order prices. So, why should I pay retail?
I get great customer service that Best Buy would refuse to honor. I had lightning that destroyed around 10K in electronics. My home theater store wrote a letter to the insurance company, so I was able to get the items replaced.
Would you get that treatment from Best Buy? No!

Does LG have 4k content like Sony or Red? No! Here is a company that delivers 4k content to the theaters now via satellite. http://www.microspace.com/ Have you heard about Nirvanx cloud storage? http://www.nirvanix.com/news-events/press-releases/2012/2012-04-09.aspx

"San Diego, April 9, 2012 – Nirvanix, the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud storage services, today announced that it is featuring a promotional offer of 1TB of cloud storage for free for 30 days to qualified NAB Show 2012 attendees. This offer enables companies to test drive cloud storage and experience its benefits without making a financial commitment.

Cloud test drivers can join the rapidly growing number of media and entertainment companies that are already using Nirvanix public, hybrid and private cloud storage services. These companies are using Nirvanix technology for secure petabyte-scale digital backup and archival, workflow, content collaboration and distribution across the globe of a massive number and variety of file types from 3D movies and HD video, 2K/4K/8K/IMAX files to CGI elements, MPEGs and JPEGs."

Well, LG, needs to spend money on working with companies that can deliver the content. Sony & RED are doing that. The only issue that should have been resolved is HEVC h.265. This is like building a new car and forgetting to install the software in the computer.
http://hometheaterreview.com/could-h265-compression-bring-4k-to-blu-ray-andor-streaming-media/
Does the new TV sets have h.264 or h.265 decoders in them? Perhaps the new TV's can be upgraded? Probably not, they want to sell you a new set every 2 years.

Sounds more like 1080p format on the 3D content.

If I owned a 4k TV, I rather have a large variety of content similar to Netflix. I hope Sony & RED offers multiple 4k Studios than only a few.

It is nice to have an estimate from DirecTV for when they will start delivering 4K video. Overall I would say that this is good news though I would mention that this hd-report article is much better written and here are some quotes from it:

Quote:
Philip J. Goswitz, SVP, Space & Communications / Technology Development for DirectTV, Inc. indicated that the satellite pay-TV company will be increasing its efforts to offer Ultra-HDTV transmissions by 2016, and begin switching off any remaining vestiges of the old Standard-Def spectrum in favor of full HD channels.

Goswitz, speaking at the Euroconsult conference last month, was able to forecast a 2016 rollout of U-HDTV based on DirectTV’s current commitment to switch its SD channels (currently using Ku-band frequencies) to their local-to-local Ka-band frequencies.

The article that the tvpredictions article used as a source was this advanced television article and in my opinion it was poorly written. A much better article on this issue is this hd-report article that indicates that the DirecTV plan is to switch off the redundant SD channels and put the remaining SD only channels in the local to local Ka-band frequencies. That would better explain how DirecTV is planning to free up 1 GHz of satellite spectrum.

ATSC may be showing its age but I don't understand why you would consider it a joke. From what I have read in the book "Defining Vision" ATSC was the first digital HD broadcasting system. In my opinion that is a huge achievement and in comparison the two competing HD broadcasting systems that were developed in the early 1990's did far worse. The analog HD broadcasting system used in Japan (MUSE) that was released in 1991 didn't even last a decade before a digital replacement (ISDB) started being used and the analog HD broadcasting system developed in Europe (HD-MAC) was so flawed that it wasn't even released. Why than do you consider ATSC to be a joke?

I understand that you mean to be ironic, but to just correct some misapprehensions. wink.gif
The Alexa is a 2K camera (3.2k sensor) so it's not useful for 4K content unless you want to upconvert.
The Red cameras can use DSLR lenses from Canon, Nikon and Leica, so no need for expensive PL-mount cine glass.
In addition to Red and Sony Pro 4K-6K cameras you also have Semi-pro 4K cameras from Canon (C500&1D-C), Sony(fs700) and JVC.
You will still need deep pockets to produce your own 4K content. cool.gif

dude i have red epic and so many lenses even canon l primes for 5d mark iii.you think i dont know canon c100 c500 and sony cameras,they are not in same line with red and arri believe me.Alexa will record 4k with upgrade dont worry camera or sensor doesnt need to be real 4k for this.there is already 4k prores support on quicktime.
so i think you are crazy for K's too but believe its not about resolution.dynamic range color space etc. more important then res!! and alexa is far ahead better than Epic even with 2k.
you cant tell difference between 2k 4k even on big cinema screen from usual distance.im on the phone now gotta find that tech. research about this in soon and post it here..

That's rubbish.
Had you followed this thread and other threads on AVS you would have seen this have been disputed a long time ago. We are past that discussion looong ago.
Only Alexa fanboys and DP's shooting with it still claim "2K is good enough" to defend their choice (or stupidity).
Let's cheer Arri on for their effort in not pushing image quality forward cool.gif

My only point of my former post was to correct you on the notion that Alexa isn't a 4K camera, not to end up in a stupid discussion on the merit of general camera technology.

Yeah, let me get dragged into an endless discussion with a Alexa fanboy about which is the best camera.rolleyes.gif
Sell your Epic (if you really own one) and buy a Alexa if it such a wonder camera. tongue.gif

you cant tell difference between 2k 4k even on big cinema screen from usual distance.im on the phone now gotta find that tech. research about this in soon and post it here..
That's rubbish.
Had you followed this thread and other threads on AVS you would have seen this have been disputed a long time ago. We are past that discussion looong ago.
Only Alexa fanboys and DP's shooting with it still claim "2K is good enough" to defend their choice (or stupidity).
Let's cheer Arri on for their effort in not pushing image quality forward cool.gif

My only point of my former post was to correct you on the notion that Alexa isn't a 4K camera, not to end up in a stupid discussion on the merit of general camera technology.
very cool you sound like you have f65 and waiting for 8k tech in soon.arri alexa is awesome camerabut its very expensive for my budget i love red so much it changed my life completely in last 3 year..even
thanks to the google making kids so informative about toys that they dont even see in their lives once..i was crazy red fanboy in past and its enough i dont wanna sound stupid with these bigger K arguments in future
you do not get it..it is not about resolution!!! we did the tests on big screen..believe me you upconvert alexas 2K footage to 4K then compare with other stuff..it still better than others..Not resolutionwise from Epic of course.But in cinema nobody cares about resolution.
Have you ever heard Roger Deakins? Emmanuel Lubezki? Robert Richardson?? You think they are so stupid because they dont use 5K or 8K? Think they better hire you to teach about consulting lol

I didn't expect much in the way of surprises at the October HEVC meeting but a proposal from a company called NGcodec has recently gained a lot of support. The proposal is for a 10-bit consumer HEVC profile to be added at the next HEVC meeting and while the first version of the proposal was only supported by NGcodec the third version is supported by BSkyB, DirecTV, Ericsson, Motorola Mobility, NGcodec, NHK, SVT, Technicolor, and Thomson Video Networks. I don't know what will happen with this proposal but here is some of the explanation that was given for why a 10-bit consumer HEVC profile is needed:

Support for 10-bit bit-depth is becoming very important in many mass market applications, especially related to 1080p HD and UHDTV, including the following examples:
  • The bit depth supported by the ITU-R BT. 2020 recommendation on UHDTV is 10 or 12 bits (8 bits is not supported at the moment).
  • Content producers are mastering and archiving 1080p HD content in 10-bit bit-depth.
  • Support for 10-bit bit-depth is becoming available on consumer display systems. The larger physical size of UHDTV displays, coupled with the wider color gamut and higher dynamic ranges supported by them, may more readily expose the visual artifacts of 8-bit video content.
  • Nowadays, many consumer interfaces support 10-bit bit-depth (HDMI1.4a, DisplayPort support 12 bits at least).

Besides, most of the digital video workflow elements now support at least 10-bit, from the acquisition to the rendering. Furthermore, a number of broadcasters (some of them represented on this contribution) evaluating the creation of 1080p HD and UHDTV services have identified the need for a 10-bit profile being able to use HEVC for delivering UHDTV content.
