DirecTV will deliver US Open in 4k/HDR via 5G Network

directv-logo-new-on-wht-600x200pxWhen the US Open Championship starts on June 14 this summer DirecTV will be transmitting a 4k/HDR signal from Fox Sports to deliver the match in Ultra HD resolution. What’s makes this event even more significant though is Fox will be utilizing 5G to deliver the digital signal.

This will be a first for a golf tournament, but not the first time 5G has been used for 4k as Intel used the technology to deliver events from the PyeongChang Winter Olympics last February.

For the 4k/HDR footage, the US Open will be captured by two Fox Sports cameras at the Par-3 7th hole at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. From the Fox production truck, technologies from Fox Innovation Labs, Intel and Ericsson will get the digital feed to AT&T who will then distribute it across its network using millimeter wave spectrum technology.

Cool stuff. Can’t wait to watch the US Open in 4k with HDR!
