Together with the Turkish national broadcaster TRT, Türk Telekom and Net Insight’s local partner Sekom the UEFA Europe League quarter final game between Besiktas and Lyon in Istanbul was broadcasted in 4K.
This is the first time in Turkey where a live match was broadcasted in Ultra HD (4K) over Türk Telekom’s fiber infrastructure utilizing Net Insight’s media transport solution, the Nimbra platform.
“The video quality and the synchronization between the quadrants of the 4K signal (4x 3G-SDI) were fantastic. The delay between the Besiktas stadium in Istanbul and the TRT studios in Ankara was close to none.
We will continue broadcasting live matches in 4K using this high-quality infrastructure offering perfect synchronization and low delay.”
Hikmet Kocaman, TRT 4K Channel Manager, TRT – Turkish Radio and Television Corporation
