MEASAT is participating in a live demonstration of the satellite DVB-S2X and terrestrial DVB-T2 hybrid 4K 60p transmission system at the ABU Digital Broadcasting Symposium in Kuala Lumpur.

Working with Village Island and Aviindos, the satellite operator will transmit two 4K ultra HD videos at 60 progressive frames per second.

The satellite transmission will be received via a three metre mesh-type receive antenna to be installed by Total Communication on the rooftop of the conference venue.

"MEASAT is excited to be part of another innovative technical demonstration that presents an enhanced broadcasting solution to our customers," said Jarod Lopez, vice president broadcast sales, MEASAT.

"Customers using this solution will have greater bandwidth efficiency to launch and distribute 4K channels on MEASAT's satellites."
ABU DBS 2015 runs from 3-6 March, at Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
