German operator HD+ is to offer content in Ultra HD and high dynamic range (HDR) from Travelxp 4K, claimed to be one of the world’s leading travel and lifestyle television channels.

travelXp 12dec2017As of 13 December 2017, the channel will be broadcast via an SES Astra satellite from the 19.2 degrees East and will rely on the satellite provider’s MX1 services division for playout and uplink services.

Travelxp 4K is also one of the first networks in the world to broadcast in HDR and believes that by deploying the technology, HD+ customers can enjoy scenes of holiday destinations from around the world in a picture quality that is almost as good as real life.

“Travelxp 4K made its world debut in Ultra HD with SES almost a year ago and we have continued to innovate with SES ever since,” commented Travelxp CEO Prashant Chothani. “We are delighted that our partnership with SES’s media platform HD+ will soon enable German viewers to enjoy our content on Travelxp 4k. The channel will initially launch in English, but from the beginning of 2018, viewers will also be captivated by our visually stunning, well-produced German content.”

“By leveraging our global infrastructure, our unique product portfolio and our commitment to new TV technologies, we have fast become the leader in Ultra HD,” added Ferdinand Kayser, CEO of SES Video. “The combination of ASTRA capacity, MX1 services and the HD+ media platform creates a strong formula that allows Travelxp 4K to introduce its Ultra HD content in Germany. With the addition of Travelxp 4K to its bouquet, HD+ is entering the next phase of the Ultra HD development in Germany, continuing what started two years ago with the first Ultra HD demo channel.”

The Ultra HD HDR channel was first launched on SES’s North American Ultra HD platform, nearly a year ago. The SES content line-up in North America also features NASA TV UHD, Fashion One 4K, C4K360, UHD1, 4KUNIVERSE, Funbox UHD, Nature Relaxation 4K, the SES demo channel, Insight TV and The Country Network.
