HD & UHD

Delivering stunning content consistently

Image quality is increasingly important to audiences as we are seeing in the acceleration in take-up of HD and now Ultra HD (UHD).

Euroconsult forecasts that the share of HD channels worldwide will increase from 23% in 2016 to 46% in 2026. According to Screen Digest, more than 103 million homes in Europe are equipped with HD-Ready displays, making HD available in over 60% of households.

The future is also fast becoming a reality for millions as the broadcast industry adapts to Ultra HD TV, the new benchmark for broadcasting, with demand for UHD growing. According to Euroconsult, over 75 million 4K TVs were shipped in 2017.

Satellites are a natural platform for broadcasting Ultra HD content. Their bandwidth availability and wide coverage areas enables viewers to receive the same quality signal wherever they are located within the satellite coverage.
