The DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting Project) could this week finalise the requirements for the second phase of a broadcast standard for Ultra High Definition (UHD), with the aim of deployment in 2017.

Chair of the DVB-UHDTV commercial module David Wood said one of the aims was to include high dynamic range, but some DVB members believe the second phase of the specification should not be approved until high frame rate, up to 120Hz, can also be included.

That could delay the availability of the specification until 2019 or later.
