UHD and HDR: Making TV "New and Improved"

Analysts are predicting sales of upwards of 50 million Ultra HD (UHD) televisions over the next five years, and Alticast US President and CTO John Carlucci says it’s easy to see why.
In this video Carlucci talks about how UHD allows the artist’s vision of content to be delivered completely to the subscriber in an uncompromised fashion, and how High Dynamic Range “is a bit like your laundry detergent: It makes your whites whiter, your blacks blacker, it makes all
the colors of the rainbow better.”
