Satellite operator Eutelsat is launching a new ultra HD channel with HEVC encoding that is multiplexed with the existing Quad HD signal in the same Eutelsat 10A transponder.
The new Ultra HD HEVC channel, set up in partnership with Ateme, will be operating at 30 frames per second and broadcasting Ultra HD content from providers including Fox International Channels and National Geographic Channel.
A third channel on the same satellite is dedicated to a partnership with Samsung to promote Ultra HD at point-of-sale outlets.
Benefiting from Eutelsat 10A's pan-European footprint, it enables Samsung to demonstrate its expanding range of Ultra HD consumer displays.
The channel is showcasing Ultra HD content specially produced by Samsung and Eutelsat.
Working in partnership with Ericsson, Globecast, Newtec and SKY Italia, Eutelsat is also showing a live Ultra HD contribution proving the reliability of an end-to-end satellite-based delivery chain.
