The document is intended as a ready-to-use guideline where no other bilateral agreements are in place and can therefore be considered as a basic set of recommendations for UHD-HDR live signal contribution via SDI or IP interfaces. These recommendations can also be used as a starting point by broadcasters and production companies just beginning in-house UHD-HDR content production or processing, and who need a simple and concise set of parameters and rules that can be used for tender and/or commissioning purposes.

The recommendations reflect well‑established “best practices” in the industry at publication. Please note that this publication’s application is to everyday UHD material contribution and playout from broadcast centres. It is not targeted towards distribution to end‑users nor is it aimed at high-end UHD movie and feature film production.
