With Sky launching their enhanced 4K UHD service from mid August, the technology driving our market is now taking a giant leap. Sky is broadcasting 4K UHD at 50 frames per second, 8-Bit colour with a HDCP 2.2 encryption. This means anybody wishing to watch the new 4K service must be watching on a compatible 4K UHD HDCP 2.2 display. The same rules apply for any AV receivers or distribution products used within the system.
At Blustream we are focused on ensuring our products work in all distribution environments and are compatible with all the latest resolutions and copyright encryptions. We have therefore been working hard during the last 12 months to ensure we are the first manufacturer to deliver a complete range of 4K UHD HDCP 2.2 solutions, all ready to go in time for the launch of SKY 4K UHD. The new V2 generation of products from Blustream all boast HDCP 2.2 encryption and the ability to pass full 4K UHD signals including Sky.
