Ultra HD Forum says its now tracking 150 consumer-facing Ultra HD TV services across the globe.
According to data released by the Forum three-quarters of the world’s UHD services are predominantly linear, serving over 125 million viewers. The other quarter of VoD-based UHD services serve 180 million viewers.
Half of all UHD services now offer HDR while almost a quarter include some form of Next Generation Audio.
To further monitor of services the organisation has now launched its UHD service tracker with additional data for Forum members.
Separately, the Ultra HD Forum has updated its Guidelines for the UHD community.
Version 2.3 includes elements of the SMPTE ST2110 and ATSC 3.0 standards and the South American roadmap to UHD.
