There is still time to book tickets to this year’s Beyond HD Masters event, where Andy Quested, head of Technology, BBC HD and 3D, will appear as a speaker and panellist. Quested will present the session, ‘The Future: Beyond current technologies’, as well as appearing as a panellist on the discussion, ‘3D Perspectives: Is the fate of 3DTV linked with 4K?’
Quested began work as a technical assistant at the BBC in 1978. He joined the Telecine and Video Tape department as a television engineer, before working as an edit assistant and video tape editor. He has worked across the whole range of BBC output, but is perhaps best known as the editor of Keeping Up Appearances. Since 2005, Quested has been leading the BBC’s high definition technology strategy as head of Technology for HD, and also chairs the EBU strategic Quality Control programme. In 2010 he took on the role of head of Technology for the BBC’s 3D output and strategy, and now also heads the EBU 3D group. Most recently, he has taken on the challenge of the BBC’s technical strategy on the use of Ultra High Definition (level 1 and 2) for production and programme exchange.
On 11 June, Quested will be appearing at TVBEurope’s Beyond HD Masters event, discussing the question of what is beyond HD. He will raise such questions as: have we reached the limits of conventional digital acquisition technology? What about the future of high resolution 3D? Could 4K be nothing more than an interim standard – that rather like 50 frame progressive being ‘Full HD’, so 8K will be ‘Full UHD’? What are the sound implications of going beyond HD?
Quested will also be taking part in a panel discussion chaired by Adrian Pennington, editorial consultant, TVBEurope. Information on both these events and more can be found on the full Beyond HD Masters agenda.
