Zurich Athletics 2014
Together with host broadcaster and EBU member SRG SSR the EBU initiated a project to shoot footage at the
Zurich European Athletics Championships in August 2014 that would represent UHDTV Phase 2 requirements, such as HFR, HDR and higher resolution.
The sequences contain different combinations of these parameters.
For more information about UHDTV, including details on the FIFA 2014, please see EBU tech-i 21 (September 2014).
The project was supported by our partners whom we want to thank:
