Speaking to Panorama Audiovisual>, he added: “Once we have accepted the convenience of UHD, of which we all know its advantages, it is time to ask a new question: Does the installed receiver equipment in Spain allow us to watch these broadcasts in UHD? The answer is yes, and moreover, it is going to get bigger and bigger.
“The increase in television consumption experienced in the last year, caused by health restrictions and greater permanence in homes, together with the recent and upcoming sporting events, have also been key in this good evolution, generating a high demand for large format screens and consequently in the massive possibility that the receivers marketed can receive UHD.
“Broadcasters, as well as the whole chain of capture, encoding, broadcasting and post-production, up to the receiver itself, are making real efforts to bring this technology to end users”.
Vestel, which is one of the founding partners of the UHD Spain association, is a technology multinational from Turkey that manufactures and distributes TV sets of JVC, Hitachi and Toshiba brands, among others, and exports products to 149 markets under leading Japanese and European brands.
Since last June, the UHD Spain association has been broadcasting content through DTT, satellite, internet and hybrid TV in order to promote UHD in Spain.
