然而，就信号处理而言，未来已经来临。 这个新事物的名字叫RAW 8K。
AV Stumpfl RAW服务器于2016年初正式推出，此后已用于大量涉及大型投影和下一代LED设置的尖端AV项目。
下一次的设备基础设施升级是否会是基于4K的，或者主要的网络是否会等待更长的时间来直接转换到8K格式，都令人怀疑。正如“市场推广的4K”通常指的是分辨率为3840x2160的UHD 1 ，目前看来，未来任何新的主流广播8K标准实际上都可能指的是UHD 7680x4320。
当我们谈论AV Stumpfl的8K时，我们喜欢使用术语RAW 8K，这不仅是市场术语，而且是我们对当今已经存在的一切毫不妥协的定义。
RAW 8K定义为辨率为8192 x 4320像素，帧速率至少为60fps，4：4：4的未经压缩的视频内容。 RAW 8K服务器可以提供屡获殊荣，经过测试的可靠的信号处理解决方案，能够处理无损的8K，即RAW 8K和色深超过10位的内容。
RAW 8K 可以直接处理未压缩的8K PNG序列。
Only a few years ago, the idea that professional 8K workflows could become an actual reality by 2020 seemed far fetched.
In terms of signal processing however, the future is already here. This new reality has a name, RAW 8K.
AV Stumpfl RAW servers were officially introduced at the beginning of 2016 and have since been used for a great number of cutting edge AV projects involving large scale projection and next generation LED setups.
Most leading broadcast networks only managed to transform their workflows to accommodate Full HD resolution in the last couple of years.
It is doubtful whether the next equipment infrastructure upgrade will be 4K based, or whether major networks will wait a little longer to switch to 8K formats directly.
In the same way that the "marketing 4K" usually refers to UHD 1 with a resolution of 3840x2160, it seems likely at this point that any new major broadcast 8K standards might actually refer to UHD 7680x4320 in the future.
When we talk about 8K at AV Stumpfl, we like using the term RAW 8K, which is not just a marketing term, but our uncompromising definition of what is already possible today.
RAW 8K defines uncompressed video content with a resolution of 8192 x 4320 pixels and a frame rate of at least 60fps, 4:4:4. RAW 8K servers can provide award winning, tested and reliable signal processing solutions capable of handling uncompressed 8K, aka RAW 8K and content with color depth beyond 10-bit.
Our high performance servers are also capable of playing up to 4 times 4K uncompressed video content at 60fps simultaneously.
The video content can be processed in the form of native picture sequences like TGA or TIFF without any need for converting it into any intermediate codec formats.
RAW 8K can process uncompressed 8K PNG sequences straight away.
By reducing the number of colors used in videos, the amount of data and processing time is massively reduced.
However, this way of doing things comes at a price, since the picture quality also suffers and the overall viewing experience is drastically impaired.
RAW 8K servers by contrast are capable of processing and delivering uncompressed 8K video content with full 4:4:4 color sampling.
No other standard media server system can currently match the performance power of our RAW 8K servers when it comes to uncompressed 4K and 8K playback from a single machine.
Leading LED manufacturers and customers in the automotive indutry regularly use our media servers for their high profile trade fair presentations around the world.
In early 2020, we introduced the groundbreaking new PIXERA two RT media server for real-time graphics applications, offering ultra fast NVMe read speed of up to 10GB/s. This powerful next generation media server is capable of playing out of up to six simultaneous uncompressed 4k60 8-bit content streams or four uncompressed 4k60 10-bit content streams.
