Hispasat says it is the first satellite service globally to broadcast in the Dolby Vision HDR format.

The new permanent service is now available through the European beams of Hispasat 1E, and has been launched in collaboration with Cellnex Telecom, Dolby, RTVE and Thomson Video Networks.

Hispasat said it would demo the service at the forthcoming IBC conference.
