The Polish public broadcaster TVP is making preparations for the launch an Ultra HD channel.
Quoted by Wirtualne Media, its spokesperson Magdalena Lobodzinska said that by 2018 it would have a complete technological mobile installation in place that will allow for the live transmission of 4k content on the internet.
This, she added, would be a major step towards launching an Ultra HD channel.
TVP is currently making intense preparations for the production and distribution of 4k content. In late June, it announced a tender for the provision of services for the research and development of 4, 8 and 16k within the framework of a project financed by the EU.
Separately, TVP has announced that its channel TVP Info will switch to HD on the night of June 18/19. As a consequence of this, TVP Polonia will leave the third DTT multiplex (MUX3).
