Hipasat collaborates with RTVE to broadcast a Spanish royal ceremony in 4K

Spanish satellite telecommunications operator Hispasat has taken what it described as another step forward in its commitment to technological and audiovisual innovation.

The satellite operator collaborated with RTVE in offering the broadcast of the Solemn Changing of the Royal Guard from the Royal Palace in Madrid in July, with the event being shown on the 4K channel currently being tested by RTVE in Madrid, Barcelona  and Sevilla.

Ateme, Loewe, LG, Dolby, Cellnex, Albala, Abacanto, Grass Valley, Crosspoint, EVS, Moncada y Lorenzo, Canon and Huri all participated with Hispasat and RTVE in the pioneering national broadcast.

The broadcast was part of the activities of the RTVE Chair at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, established in January 2015, which led to the development of a number of events concerned with UHD. Hispasat and RTVE had previously worked together to promote UHD technology through the broadcast of content via satellite from RTVE’s Botón Rojo and through the live 4K broadcast via satellite of the opera 'Parsifal' from the Teatro Real.
