Organised by Spanish content producer Medina Media, the 4K World Summit Sevilla will focus on the growing Ultra HD (UHD) industry from the standpoint of both technology providers and content creators.

Supported by Comunicare Digitale and Panorama Audiovisual, the event aims to become the first summit linking Ultra HD content and technology with demos and international speakers. Producers, professionals, consultants, broadcasters, distributors and 4K manufacturers will share their experiences, challenges, needs and solutions at the event which takes place from 5-6 November.

The summit will include live experimental demonstrations of UHD transmission by TDT, satellite and over-the-top (OTT) platforms, screenings of some of the best 4K audiovisual productions, and demos of Ultra HD equipment, round tables, networking, and business-to-business meetings.

Among the speakers will be RTVE's Pere Vila, Cellnex's Xavier Redón, Thierry Fautier from the Ultra HD Forum, Hispasat's Jorge Rodríguez, Eutelsat's Michel Chabrol and the BBC's Andy Quested.

The country's public broadcaster, RTVE, will present its European Ultra HD projects at the event.
