HD is followed by Ultra HD, which is four times the HD resolution. Now ProSiebenSat.1 has also announced that I will start broadcasting UHD content.
ProSiebenSat.1 launches Ultra-HD broadcasting
UHD is certainly not new. Content is already available on iTunes, Amazon Prime or Netflix. Even Sky is already broadcasting in UHD and will broadcast games of the FIFA World Cup 2018 exclusively in Ultra HD.
Now the ProSiebenSat.1 group starts into the UHD era. From late summer 2018, the broadcaster group will produce and broadcast first episodes of “Galileo Spezial” and “Rosins Restaurants” in ultra-high-resolution UHD (4K) format with HDR. In the following months more in-house productions of the station group in UHD will follow.
Irrespective of whether one of Galileo Spezial’s or Rosin’s restaurants is one of his favorites, it is good to see that the ProSiebenSat.1 Group basically starts broadcasting in UHD. The message says further
For the reception of the UHD offers, ProSiebenSat.1 relies on a variety of reception channels: parallel to live broadcasting in SD and HD, UHD broadcasts can be received via the Astra satellite on the UHD1 transmitter via HD +. In addition, the content can be accessed via the ProSiebenSat.1 digital offers, such as the broadcasters’ web streaming offers and the ProSiebenSat.1 Red Button offer. The prerequisite for receiving UHD content is a UHD / 4K and HDR-compatible TV.
