Posted by – December 7, 2013

3D as cinema magic – is just the beginning! A broad array of research bodies ranging from research institutes, private sector development labs and universities to radio stations and TV companies and telecoms are now engaged in planning and developing 3D production, 3D content, and 3D distribution. Yet most of these initiatives are standalone with little or no contact between them. The 3D Innovation Center Berlin offers the whole cast of actors a platform and a pre-competitive environment where they can exchange views and opinions, build contacts, put their products and systems to the test and present them jointly to a diversity of target audiences. The ready availability of know-how covering the whole 3D systems chain will generate new synergies – in terms of product development, marketing and sales as well as market positioning and public relations.

- a showroom for products, prototypes and ideas
- a development platform and testbed for 3D technologies, applications and infrastructures
- an R&D lab for projects, innovations and standards
- a communication platform for providers, users and the general public
- a transfer platform for expertise and professional training
- a marketing instrument for advertising, sales and PR
- a pool of resources for experts, know-how, and marketing and target audience data etc.

The establishment and organization of the 3D Innovation Center is in the hands of the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, The 3D Innovation Center is planned to operate for an initial period of five years. The start-up phase of the 3D Innovation Center is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi).

Geniatech ATV1800 Enjoy TV Quad Core Box does 4K video on AmLogic M802 Set-top-box on new KKTV $1100 55″ 4K LCD TV

Posted by – November 28, 2013

In China, the 55" 4K TV now sells for $1100!!!!!!!! Dreams come true! We're all about to get a 4K TV (this one is the Konka KKTV LED55K60U). Android Set-top-box leader Shenzhen Geniatech shows me here their ATV1800 on AmLogic Quad-core M802 with Eight-core Mali-450 to actually playback 4K video over HDMI. This is the beginning of the Ultra HD future, on Android Box, here beautifully showing off this amazingly affordable new Konka KKTV LED55K60U 55" 4K TV sold for only $1100 all over China!!!! The trick of course is how we in the future will get 4K video contents, the trick I think is to stream it all from the web. I believe most movies of this last century are or can be digitized and made available in 4K streaming as soon as movie studios and cinemateques around the world make the 4K version of all 35mm-sourced or often 4K-digital (for movies filmed in the last 5 or so years) movies available. How much bandwidth does one need for good 4K video streaming? My guess is 20mbitps may be enough, even less sometimes if the 4K comes from YouTube and Netflix, while a good 4K streaming provider should scale above 20mbitps if your home Internet connection for example has 50mbitps, 100mbitps downstream speed or above.
