Italian public broadcaster RAI, via its Strategic Technologies unit, has teamed up with Eutelsat Italia on a project to experiment with recording in the 4K Ultra-HD standard.
”Rome, Naples, Venice … in a Rossini Crescendo” is the name of a documentary that will be shot in Ultra-HD, which will explore thecultural beauties of Italian cities famed for their art. Directed by director Lina Wertmuller, the documentary focuses on the famous composer Gioacchino Rossini which covers three major cities – Rome, Naples and Venice – revealing how the culture and music of the past are always living in the present and will inevitably project themselves into the future.
The trailer of the documentary was presented in Venice in an exclusive screening at the Eutelsat TV Awards 2013.
