Eutelsat, Samsung demonstrate world’s first UltraHD TV satellite reception

European satellite operator Eutelsat has partnered with Samsung Electronics for a world-first demonstration of a consumer-ready Ultra HD satellite broadcast to a Samsung UltraHD TV set at the consumer electronics fair IFA 2013 in Berlin, Rapid TV News has reported. The UltraHD broadcasts will be delivered using the Eutelsat 10A satellite at 10° East, which already carries Europe's first dedicated Ultra HD channel. "UltraHD broadcasting standards are expected to be finalised soon and our products are future-proof thanks to the evolution kit that supports current and future transmission standards," said Samsung's senior director, European sales and marketing, Michael Zoeller.
