Today, at CineEurope 2014, the annual European cinema convention, DSAT Cinema announced that they have successfully performed for the first time worldwide a satellite live broadcast of 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition) content in High Frame Rate (up to 60fps) encoded in HEVC format, on a digital cinema projection system designed for theatrical screenings.
 
With its partners, Eutelsat, Sony 4K Digital Cinema and International Datacasting, DSAT Cinema, the leading European platform for live broadcast in cinema theatres, has achieved a new milestone in the history of the event cinema industry by transmitting live 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) content encoded in H265 HEVC format and in High Frame Rate (HFR) (the transmission was in 50 fps but the solution is designed to go up to 60fps) with up 10 bits of colour depth (1 billion colours).
