SES, one of the world’s leading satellite operators, has initiated the first-ever live and linear Ultra HD trial with cable MSO Armstrong.
Armstrong is testing SES’s camera-to-screen Ultra HD ecosystem at its headquarters cable lab in Butler, Pennsylvania. SES is claiming that the outcome of the tests will support progress toward the cost-efficient roll-out of linear-live Ultra HD.
“We have a great long-term partnership with SES that enables us to innovate with satellite-delivered content solutions and provide exciting new potential offerings, comments Mike Giobbi, Chief Technology Officer for Armstrong. “We look forward to testing Ultra HD on our cable system and working closely with SES on this exciting solution.”
