8K SVIP Easy Bridge to the future 8K Broadcast Studio


8K SVIP is a European collaborative project of four academic and industrial partners: intoPIX, Cesnet, Image Matters and AV Media. As 2018 is considered as the year where 8K needs to be a reality in broadcast studios, 8K SVIP is reducing the gap between the current studios only equipped with HD signals and migrating to 4K and the necessary transmission of 8K signals over IP networks and SDI. The project is developing advanced transport technologies to enable broadcast studios to manage and transport 8K signals.
