In 2008 PSNC has started a creation of the 4K node in Poznan, in 2010 the infrastructure was upgraded to process and display 4K 3D using passive polarization technology for stereoscopy. Since 2015 the laboratory was enhanced to 8K 3D 60p capture, production, live processing and visualisation infrastructure connected to 100G PIONIER network. The laboratory has capabilities to create, process, transmit and present 8K 3D 60p or 8K 120p video content.
