16K for the Next Generation of Very Large Screen Applications

16K video, with a spectacular resolution of 15360 x 8640 pixels, enables a new generation of very large screen applications such as ultra-high resolution videowalls, giant projection systems, immersive displays, and true immersive VR.

16K using a HEVC Software Codec and Media Player on a Single PC

Spin Digital has further optimized its HEVC decoder and video render for very high performance on new processor architectures. It makes possible now to playback 16K video using a software only solution running on a single PC.

16K HEVC playback goes beyond the current capabilities of RAW media servers. With Spin Digital software it is possible to play very high quality 16K content encoded with HEVC at a very low bandwidth and reduced storage cost.
