BT reveals the future of UHD outside sports broadcasting at IBC 2016

At this year’s IBC conference in Amsterdam, we’re going to unveil the latest Ultra High Definition (UHD) outside broadcasting links truck. It’ll be used to broadcast BT Sport’s live coverage of the Round 2 AVIVA Premiership Rugby Matches in 4K.

The TES52 truck is the first vehicle in the UK capable of transmitting multiple HD and UHD/4K visions via fibre and satellite simultaneously. The truck will also use the latest encoding equipment, specifically designed for premium live sports broadcasting.

We’ll be displaying the TES52 truck at our stand, O.C01 in the Outside Exhibition area. During the course of the exhibition we’ll also be hosting a range of keynote panel sessions, covering topics such as ‘The Next Generation of Networking’, ‘4K, HDR and Beyond’ and ‘Cyber Security’.

Mark Wilson-Dunn, Vice President at BT Media & Broadcast, said: “We’re really excited to be showcasing our latest technology innovations at IBC, as it’ll give us even more opportunities to meet and share ideas with others from the industry.

We believe that we have the UK’s best outside broadcast links fleet, delivering the highest quality footage to broadcasters and sports fans across the world in all formats, including 4K UHD. It’s not good enough to just keep up in this industry. We owe it to our clients to keep innovating and lead from the front.
