Digital cinema is a promising application that utilizes high-speed optical networks to transfer super-high-definition (SHD) images. The networks are primarily used for distributing digital cinema contents in packet data form, and are also used to support new services such as the live streaming of musicals and sport games to movie theaters. While current transfer services offer high-definition (HD) quality video, live-streaming applications will soon shift to providing cinema quality 4K content to both business and movie theaters users. The extra-high-quality 4K format enables a realistic telepresence, and will be combined with special tools such as video editing systems to realize effective remote collaboration for business workspaces. This paper introduces successive research on SHD image transmission and its application, especially in digital cinema and associated application fields.
