General News Travelxp 4K launches in Europe; APAC, LatAm launch on the cards

MUMBAI: Ultra HD travel channel Travelxp 4K has officially launched in Europe on Eutelsat’s Hotbird 13E. This is Travelxp 4K’s second channel after the North American launch on SES 1 in the beginning of this year.

The channel will soon launch in APAC and Latin America.

Travelxp 4K is made available in several languages and launched initially with 100 hours of travel programmes filmed all over the world with multicultural hosts.

The channel would soon be available in English, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Serbian, Croatian, Czech and Dutch languages. Localisation in other languages are to be announced soon.

The channel has selected HEVC encoding with 10bits of colour depth (one billion colours), at 50 frames per second. It broadcasts in 10 bits REC 2020 colour space using the new HDR (High Dynamic Range) standard developed by the BBC and NHK that creates richer and more dynamic images by increasing the contrast ratio between the lightest and darkest areas of the screen and expanding the volume of colours displayed. This standard uses HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) technology, enabling legacy Standard Dynamic (SDR) displays to decode the HDR standard.

Travelxp 4K CEO Prashant Chothani commented, “We started the test feed on Eutelsat Hotbird at the beginning of this year and kept it free to air for operators and hardware vendors to access HLG HDR content feed on satellite. Being the world’s first 4K HDR channel, we are extremely grateful to all the partners, vendors and stakeholders to make this happen. Quality is at the forefront of Travelxp 4K and viewers are going to love the quality of content that we have produced.”

The 4K channel follows the success of Travelxp HD, which offers 100% originally-produced premium travel and lifestyle programming distributed to over 50 million homes globally.
