Using the campus’s tallest building as a testbed, Dr Lazaridis – who is Reader in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the university’s School of Computing and Engineering – made a series of OFCOM-licensed transmissions.

His research also allowed him to make UHD TV broadcasts of a graduation ceremony, giving TV buffs and techheads in Huddersfield with up-to-date sets a unique chance to watch the proceedings.

The aim of the experiment was to harvest feedback from viewers to be passed on to multi-national manufacturers. The tests he has been conducting are of great importance because all broadcasting companies need to gauge the reaction of the audience to UHD.

Dr Lazaridis, 50, has forged valuable links with the developers and manufacturers of the complex encoders that are required for UHD broadcasts.
