The future, proved

Eutelsat and Samsung are combining their forces at the IFA show in Berlin for a world first demonstration of a consumer-ready Ultra HD satellite broadcast on a Samsung UHD TV.

The two companies will display a DVB-S2 Ultra HD signal transmitted by satellite and received directly on the F9000.

The Ultra HD broadcasts will be delivered using the Eutelsat 10A satellite that hosts Europe's first dedicated Ultra HD channel. Samsung will display it on the F9000, which is integrated with Ultra HD reception and decoding capabilities.


Michael Zoeller, senior director, European Sales and Marketing in Samsung, said: “UHD is the future of TV, and the technology is now commercially viable with regards to affordability of products and processing power. With this world first UHD channel broadcasting direct to a consumer TV via satellite.”

Eutelsat also said that there would be a number of live broadcast demonstrations in stores around France over the next few months.

Again, we'll await Steve's report on how that looks at the Booth.
