Ultra High Definition video is entering a phase of deployment tests, with first UHD services being launched in late 2013. Most on-air broadcast UHD services will not start until 4K display market penetration is high enough, which will not happen until at least 2018. Therefore, most initial services will be offered via IPTV services or Over-The-Top delivery technologies. On the other hand, the new HEVC video compression standard, with a 50% gain over its predecessor AVC|H.264, is the natural

In this context, deployment tests of MPEG-DASH and UHD HEVC content are expected to be a very important topic in the next two years. In this paper, we present a Ultra High Definition HEVC DASH dataset ranging from HD to UHD in different bit rates. This data set may be used to simulate UHD DASH services, whether on-demand or live, using real-life professional quality content.
