Ultimate Ultra High Definition with Joe Kane

Video guru Joe Kane goes into great detail about the UHD video system and what he would like to see included in it, such as wider color gamut, higher bit depth and dynamic range, less-aggressive color subsampling, higher frame rates, and better codecs. He explains why these parameters are more important than raw pixel resolution and bemoans that the current UHD standard, ITU-R Recommendation BT-2020, doesn't go nearly far enough. Plus answers to chat-room questions and more.
