Not that this will impact all industries the same but with business users continually more tech-savvy, how long before Ultra HD (4K) affects your business? Obviously, the telco and media/entertainment industries need to understand the impact of this now on their service offerings. Will end-users in those verticals affect their internal corporate networks?
Investment firms always push the envelope re:technology but for Ultra H, industries such as healthcare and education may also wind up pushing for Ultra HD sooner rather than later, especially if 4K gets incorporated in technology that offers better/faster/cheaper diagnoses or gives expanded options for course offerings.
From the article:
“… internet downloading is the most practical (and perhaps only) way to distribute…but each movie download amounts to 40-60GB…
… 4K will cause headaches for internet service providers (ISPs) and owners of corporate networks because of video induced congestion.
YouTube, for example, has predicted that more people will watch TV or video online than they do on TVs by 2020. If even a fraction of those viewers opt for 4K, the internet could slow down to a crawl…
…And then there is the question of business content in 4K. YouTube already supports resolutions just under 4K, and an entry-level professional 4K camera costs around £4,000. If the CEO catches the 4K bug and insists their annual speech is recorded in Ultra HD, your network had better be ready.”
