Following previous experimentations featuring ballet (in 2016) and opera (in 2017), Arte has announced the launch a new 4K/HDR technical trial period from September 12th to 22nd.

The Franco-German channel has partnered with Amazon CloudFront, AWS Elemental, Anyware Vidéo, ATEME, Cobalt, Globecast, Molotov, Philips, SES, TDF and Technicolor to produce a 4K HDR10 homogeneous version from 1080i original programme Arte Live, by using native UHD-HDR content when available or by upgrading Arte Live HD images into an UHD-HDR version.

The show will then be broadcast on various platforms, such as the DTT network in Paris, Toulouse and Nantes, Astra DTH platform, HbbTV connected TVs and OTT service Molotov.

This trial will help the partners study and compare the quality of images across the broadcast systems and the various transmission standards chosen (HDR10,HLG, SL-HDR, HD, UHD).

The video feeds of the experimentation will also be available at the IBC Show next month.
