Pete Putman, CTS, KT2B; principal
of ROAM Consulting LLC and a technology consultant for Kramer
Electronics USA, will present at the InfoComm Connections show, held in
conjunction with NAB’s Communications and Content World / SatCon show at
the Jacob Javits Center in New York, NY, November 11-12, 2015.
On Thursday, November 12, Putman will present “UHDTV: Can’t Stop This
Train!” This one-hour session will cover many facets of
ultra-high-definition television, or UHDTV. This new video/display
format (4K, as it is commonly called) has come to market much more
quickly than anticipated, and the infrastructure to support it is
becoming available in bits and pieces. For example, 4K televisions,
monitors, and video cameras have been on the market for at least two
The HDMI standard has been updated (2.0) to support
high-frame-rate 4K, while DisplayPort 1.3 and Super MHL have upped the
interfacing stakes. Next-generation televisions bring with them new
acronyms: HDR (high dynamic range), WCG (wide color gamut), and HFR
(high frame rate). As with every other significant advance in consumer
electronics, UHDTV is pushing steadily into the pro AV world.
This session will get attendees up to speed on state-of-the-art 4K,
including different UHDTV format definitions, applicable display
technologies for direct-view and projection, bandwidth issues, and
display-interfacing and switching challenges.
Putman is a
member of the Senior Academy faculty at InfoComm, and was named their
Educator of the Year in 2008. He holds the Certified Technology
Specialist (CTS) designation and is a frequent presenter and instructor
