February 26, 2020

Insight TV, the 4K HDR broadcaster, content creator and format seller, has announced the commission of a new documentary filmed entirely in 8K UHD HDR. Sandboarding on Dragon Hill premieres on Insight TV in June and is produced by French-based production company FastFokus.

“Insight TV has built a reputation in the industry for pushing the envelope on broadcast and digital streaming resolution. We are always looking for ways to be on the cutting edge of technology,” said Natalie Boot, Director of Media Sales, Insight TV. “Over the past year, we have experimented with 8K and have been blown away with the results. Sandboarding on Dragon Hill is our first full-length documentary film in 8K UHD HDR and we think viewers will be equally blown away with the powerful sensory experience of this film.”

Set in the Chilean city of Iquique in the Atacama Desert, Sandboarding on Dragon Hill entices viewers to dive into the thrills of the extreme sport of sandboarding, which is similar to snowboarding but on mountains of desert sands. The documentary follows Canadian mountain bike legend Brett Tippie as he travels to Chile to ride the biggest sand dune in the world.

“We are delighted to be working with Insight TV on another adventurous show with some of the world’s best mountain biking talent. Insight TV and FastFokus share a passion for bringing extreme sports to life with thrilling content filmed in the highest quality,” said Damien Vergez of FastFokus.
