Broadening the Imagination
With the 8K live broadcast of the CCTV Spring Festival Gala, 8K UHD technology has entered the public view with lightning speed. In addition, we have seen the rise of 5G technology, offering high bandwidth, low latency and wide connectivity. These developments have strengthened the foundation for large-scale application of UHD across the video industry, and they have broadened the imagination of those in the 8K industry.
NovaStar’s CX80 Pro LED display controller is equipped with an HDMI 2.1 single-port 8K video interface, a 5G output network port and rich image quality processing algorithms. Together, these help to realize 7680×4320 @ 60Hz image analysis, processing, transmission and display presentation based on AVS3 encoding technology. In addition, they increase visibility by 64 times while, at the same time, giving users a viewing experience that is truly immersive.
What NovaStar Has Achieved
What has NovaStar achieved in order to realize 5G+8K technology? We will explore each major achievement.
- The first major achievement is single-port 8K access. NovaStar has successfully developed an 8K video input, image processing and a display driver based on the HDMI 2.1 interface. Thus, it effectively presents 8K video encoded by AVS3, which was developed independently by China, to LED displays across the country, and it does so perfectly. This realizes video banding based on 5G large-bandwidth data transmission, 8192×4320@60Hz ultra-high resolution, for various application scenarios. Single network port video banding can reach 1920×1080@60Hz, simplifying the system solution link under 8K UHD in a high-bit-depth banding scenario.
The second major achievement reflects in the platform and modular design concept. The NovaStar display software control platform, VMP, brings the debugging, management, monitoring and maintenance of the display into a standard workflow. Letting the user and the screen “dialogue” is the ultimate design goal, enhancing and refreshing the human/computer interaction experience for users.
- The third major achievement involves the system’s ability to build a screen-parameter database for management. Thus, the system and the screen automatically identify matching parameters to update and maintain the screen. From the perspective of screen maintenance, this reduces maintenance costs for both factories and end users.
- The fourth major achievement centers on full greyscale correction. This solves the problem of inconsistent imaging between the high-brightness display area and the bottom grey display area for MiniLED and microLED.
- The fifth major achievement involves correcting for cold and hot screens. This solves the problem of a color cast effect on LED displays due to heat.
- The sixth major achievement reflects an excellent picture quality engine and dynamic engine. These solve the problems of low grey jump, inaccurate greyscale display, low saturation, poor contrast and other problems associated with flatscreen displays.
- The seventh major achievement centers on support for the HDR vivid display standard. Popular in the television industry, this helps to enhance the ultra-high-definition display effect.
Achieving the Dream
In the future, NovaStar will continue to pursue the most advanced technology, the most complete solutions, the most user-friendly products, the most excellent quality and the most professional service. In so doing, NovaStar will promote the upgrading of the entire LED display industry. This will help achieve the dream of being a great technology company, and it will resolve the struggles that end users and integrators face!
