An international consortium to standardize the content and the ultra-high-definition (UHD) is planning to build a new certification for mobile devices and live streaming content in early January next year.
"It's too early to say exactly when we will be able to announce the specifications for mobile devices and content live, but we believe they can be seen both at CES 2017 in January or MWC 2017 in February," said President UHD Alliance Hanno Basse during a press conference in southern Seoul today.
UHD Alliance was established in January last year, with 40 members to date including electronics manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony and LG, as well as content creators and producers of films such as 20th Century Fox, Netflix and Dolby, participated in building the ecosystem UHD.
Basse, who also served as CTO at 20th Century Fox, stressed the alliance will take the same approach to set the standard UHD mobile, as was done previously for LCD TVs and OLED TVs. He also said the coalition dipimpinya expects UHD to replace HD and Full HD in less than five years.
"I do not think it will take a long time. It's already happening," he said.
Samsung Electronics alone has optimized graphics support with UHD standard in OS Tizen Mobile is developed, where Tizen performance graphics engine in Tizen 3.0 that will slide at the end of this year will be 30% better than Tizen version 2.4 is being used today.
Events for members of the press took place on the sidelines of the UHD Alliance this year's conference held in Seoul, which began on Tuesday to three days afterwards. According UHD Alliance, the main theme of the event is expected to be the way UHD sets the standard for mobile devices.
The conference was attended by about 80 officials from its member companies, including TV manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Sony and Panasonic, and large content creators such as 20th Century Fox, Warner Brothers, Netflix and Universal Studios.
