With tech vendors set to show a wide variety of new equipment for 4K production and distribution at the 2015 NAB Show, satellite operator SES has teamed up with Harmonic, Sony, TelVue, Pacsat and Superior to deliver a live linear Ultra HD broadcast to a cable system for three days in Las Vegas.
The tech partners are billing the demo, which will start on April 13, as the first time live UHD broadcasts will be delivered to a cable system.
The feeds to a fully operational cable system in the SES NAB booth can be seen at the SES, Harmonic and Sony booths.
The Sinclair Broadcast Group is also helping. A reporter from its KSNV in Las Vegas will be conducting celebrity interviews. In addition to the feeds to the three booths during NAB, that content will be delivered to viewers watching KSNV-TV news in Las Vegas and other Sinclair stations.
The demo will use SES satellites and teleport network and a team of technology partners.
