Germany’s M7 expands UHD channel offering

Germany’s M7 has expanded its Ultra HD portfolio with the launch of Travelxp 4K HDR.

The channel is now available to network and platform operators in German-speaking markets worldwide.

“We are excited about this attractive new addition to our UHD line-up: Travelxp 4K brings foreign cultures and exotic locations directly into the living room and enables viewers to experience destinations far away, particularly now that travelling is difficult,” said Christian Heinkele, managing director of Eviso Germany GmbH, business partner of M7 in Germany.

“Travel reports and landscape images are the perfect examples of content where excellent TV/video resolution and powerful distribution infrastructures are essential. This is a great opportunity for public utility companies, network operators and fibre-optic providers to show what their networks are capable of.”
