“UHD is achieving public and broadcasting enthusiasm”

In market after market UHD is now making its presence felt. Display sales are at record levels, while individual channel broadcasts in UHD are gathering pace. European viewers now have dedicated UHD services from most pay-TV operators, and in some markets there are multiple UHD channels available – and more are promised for 2019. It is the same in North America where DirecTV and EchoStar’s DISH are fully backing UHD.

Indeed, this year was additionally important for its recent South Korea Winter Olympics (with considerable elements captured in UHD and some events enjoying test-broadcasts in 8K). Japan’s public broadcaster NHK has confirmed it will go ‘live’ on December 1st with 12 hours a day of original 4K productions. The Russia FIFA World Cup will be completely captured in 4K.
