4K TV channels on the way as DVB-UHDTV standard is approved

4K TV channels in the UK took a step closer to reality over the weekend after a new Ultra HD TV broadcast specification was approved for Europe by the DVB Steering Board.

The new DVB-UHDTV Phase 1 specification allows for the over-the-air transmission of 3840×2160 resolution pictures at 60Hz and promises much improved colour depth with 10 bits per pixel rather than 8.

Once officially standardised, this specification will surely open the floodgates for 4K TV services to launch both on satellite and over-the-air platforms across Europe.
