TranSPORT: HEVC, JPEG 2000 Could Build Bridge to Future of Video | Video Breakthroughs |

The world of sports-video contribution, backhaul, and distribution looks to be on the brink of a major leap forward. New technologies like HEVC (high-efficiency video coding) are set to enter the market, and others, particularly JPEG 2000, continue to carve out a larger share of it. Compression standards and formats like these hold the promise of paving the way for the delivery of next-gen formats like 1080p, 4K, and 8K.


An afternoon session moderated by CBS Director of Broadcast Distribution Chris Ehrenbard at SVG’s TranSPORT in New York on Tuesday focused on the evolution of these bleeding-edge technologies and their place in the sports-video landscape.
