BT has showcased what it calls the “future of mobile streaming” with the world’s first broadcast of a UEFA Champions League game in High Definition HDR direct to mobile.
The showcase took place during Tottenham’s game at Wembley on Wednesday evening when the match was broadcast to a beta version of the BT Sport app on a range of devices.
BT Sport utilised a 24 camera Ultra HD set up for the match, with 17 HDR cameras using native HDR, and the remaining seven cameras converted to HDR 10 PQ.
BT says it will continue to test the new HD HDR technology along with other features in development.
Jamie Hindhaugh, chief operating officer, BT Sport said: “Mobile viewers are an important and growing part of our audience, and we’re constantly focusing on innovating to ensure the best possible experience for our sports fans. HDR is the future for mobile – the technology is perfect for getting the most out of the small screen, with incredible colour and definition.”
