IRT supports ORF's UHD innovation project during soccer champion ship 2018


The Austrian public service broadcaster ORF provides Event Live Streams in a show case of the soccer champion ship 2018 in Russia in Ultra HD resolution including extended color with high dynamic range. The Test is targeted to internal UHD broadcast production workflows, but a UHD stream of the Live Matches will be delivered OTT to Web Clients and TVthek-Apps for the most recent UHD-compatible versions of Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Smart TV Plattforms. The crucial live encoding for the public streams is handled by an AWS Elemental Live 4k Encoder provided by Logic Media, as part of a R&D cooperation between the ORF and the Institut für Rundfunktechnik IRT.
