SES Sends Ultra HD Transmission
Luxembourg-based satellite operator SES has sent the first Ultra HD transmission in the new HEVC compression standard.
The company said the transmission -- which broadcast a full 3840x2160 pixel image -- is proof Ultra HD transmissions are possible without sacrificing quality, due to too much compression.
"SES has once again taken a leadership role in the industry by broadcasting the first real Ultra HD picture in a commercially realistic bandwidth," said Thomas Wrede, VP of reception systems for SES. "We are convinced that the HEVC standard will become the option of choice for TV operators broadcasting Ultra HD content and expect the industry to develop prototype Ultra HD receivers in the coming months. With this initiative SES will be significantly driving the Ultra HD ecosystem forward and provide a 24/7 test channel to its industry partners."
