More TVs and Demo Channel for Ultra HD

Over two million Ultra HD TV sets were shipped worldwide in three months according to research by NPD DisplaySearch. 2.1 million Ultra HD capable 4K TVs were shipped in April-June 2014, more than in the whole of 2013. Many TV brands introduced their 2014 models in this period with Ultra HD as the ‘must-have’ feature for high-end televisions.

Meanwhile a new Ultra HD demonstration channel has started on the ASTRA 19.2°E satellite position. The ASTRA Ultra HD Demo channel shows landscapes, nature videos, impressions from city life and sports footage, to show off the new broadcasting format’s capabilities, and broadcasts free-to-air in HEVC from the 10.994GHz/H transponder.
