has kicked off the 4K revolution in India by starting to transmit seven
Ultra-HD television channels into the country and surrounding regions. These
are the first free 4K channels that can be accessed from India easily. Each
frame in a UHD video contains 8 mln dots, compared to 2 mln in Full HD and 0.4
mln in standard definition transmission.
In contrast, the seven new FTV channels are
being beamed from Apstar 7 satellite, which is placed right over India, making
it likely that these channels could be watched with even a 4.0-4.5 feet dish,
especially in Southern areas like Kerala and Tamil Nadu. The seven channels
cater to different areas of fashion, such as photoshoots, films, make-up, men’s
fashion, ‘midnite secrets’ and events.
