Smart TV Walls in Retail
Requirements for success
Features that add “smarts” to TV walls
Playback standards for true native 4K content on a 4K display
Encoding: 4K content must be encoded using H.265 to achieve playback at 60 fps with about the same file size and data rate as HD content at H.264
Decoding: Player must be able to decode an H.265 4K encoded file at a data rate of 60 fps
Output: Only 4K players and displays supporting the new HDMI 2.0 output can support 60 fps playback
