Türksat has announced the launch of an Ultra HD 8K (Super High-Vision) test broadcast channel, via the Türksat 4B and Turksat-3A communications satellites located at the 50- and 42-degrees East orbital locations.
The Ultra HD 8K broadcast test was successfully carried out with the cooperation of Türksat, Kızıl Elektronik, Vestel and Socionext. During the process, images of the historical locations of Istanbul were captured in Ultra HD 8K, making it possible for realistic UHD images to be obtained.
A Türksat representative is reported to have said that the test channel “will give domestic companies the opportunity to present the technology in a manner that makes it possible to compete with the rest of the world.”
The rep added that products equipped with Ultra HD 8K technology will help generate revenue for national technological manufacturers.
