ZTE recently promoted its end-to-end 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) solution at the Broadband Asia & TV Connect Asia in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Optimized specifically for Asia-Pacific customers, ZTE’s 4K UHD is designed to help APAC customers seize new market opportunities in the era of “big video.”

Big video, the concept first proposed by ZTE at the 2016 Mobile World Congress Barcelona, is the confluence of rapid growth in four key areas — content, networks, data and the ecosystem.

“Operator data traffic is rapidly growing, and industry consultancies predict that video data traffic will account for more than 95% of total network data consumption by 2020,” said ZTE SVP Zhu Jinyun. “Videos are created by communications professionals across all verticals and not just from the film and TV industry. These new players in video are a feature of the big video ecosystem.”

Zahu said video service is the next value keystone for operators. ZTE’s 4K UHD promises to help operators seize the opportunities that exist now and which will materialize in future.

At the summit, ZTE also demonstrated several innovative set-top-box models developed for its 4K big video solution, including the ZTE B800S2 and the ZTE HC100.

ZTE's end-to-end 4K UHD system provides comprehensive support for H.265 to ensure efficient transmission of 4K video streams, and uses a private network for 4K to guarantee high quality of service for 4K video. It is also equipped with high-performance and ultra-large-storage CDN devices to safeguard the high efficiency of the 4K video service.
