    Intelsat pave the way for Ultra HD future

    Satellite operator Intelsat is teaming up with BT Media and Broadcast, Ericsson, Sony and Newtec, to transmit the Saracens vs. Gloucester rugby union match live from London in 4K Ultra-HD to the RAI Convention Center at IBC (International Broadcasting Convention) 2013.

    The broadcast will be a milestone happening as it's will mark the first time a live event has ever been captured in 4K/UHD, encoded, transmitted via fibre and satellite, and then decoded in real time.


    Intelsat says the demo will show a true 4K transmission, meaning a 4:2:2, 10-bit, 4K/UHD signal at 60 frames per second.

    The demo will take place Sunday, 15 September between at 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Intelsat’s Stand in Amsterdam.
