‘Festival 4k’ Channel Exceeds DCI-4k

Festival 4k_channel_bannerWhat is being called ‘The first UltraHD channel in the world’ has been launched in the Netherlands. Brava Media’s ‘Festival 4K’ channel will show festivals, concerts and other events at a resolution higher than DCI-4k: 4320 x 2160, to be precise. Brava also says that the channel will move to 8k, as soon as such a move is feasible. There are currently six hours of content, which will rise to 12 next year and is aiming at 24 hours by 2017. Quite how a channel with such high resolution will be distributed was not discussed.
