A demonstration of an Ultra High Definition, high dynamic range broadcast at 50 frames per-second on existing networks has been held in the Brittany region in France.
Technology partners Envivio, Images and Réseaux, Orange, SeaEvents, TDF, Technicolor and Thomson Video Networks worked together to broadcast the French leg of the Volvo Ocean Race in Lorient, in UHD.
The broadcast used UHD, HEVC, and DVB- T2 technologies to optimise image quality and throughput on a complete chain of capture. The broadcast was presented to the public at an exhibition in Brittany.
“With this demonstration of the use of 4K for the Volvo Ocean Race, TDF enriches its mastery of the UHD broadcast on DTT platform. With this ramp-up of UHD production, TDF is proud to advance this technology by disseminating such content to the viewers,” said Alain Komly, managing director of the audiovisual division of French transmission services provider TDF.
