Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 10-01-2014

Spain's public network TVE has officially presented an UltraHD 4K documentary about the Museo del Prado, a project supported by Hispasat and Abertis.

The piece presents around 400 masterpieces from the museum, filmed in 4K, marking one of the first UltraHD productions in Spain.

The documentary – already broadcast at IBC 2013 by Hispasat to demonstrate its 4K satellite channel – is a public production sponsored by the satellite company and telco Abertis. Both companies provided the technology for filming, while production house Apuntolapospo was responsible for editing and post-production. The 4K pictures were recorded by a Sony F65, provided by equipment company Ovide.

TVE was in charge of organisation, production and direction during the whole recording process. The piece is also supported by the Spanish Ministry of Culture and the Museo del Prado.

Almost a year ago, TVE premiered a short 4K movie at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress, marking the first European UltraHD broadcast through DTT. That project was also supported by Sony, Ovide, Abertis and Apuntolapospo.
