NanoTech Entertainment will deliver the first concert film shot and produced in 4K Ultra High Definition to consumers’ homes. NanoTech’s UltraFlix 4K UHD OTT streaming video service will be used to deliver the Muse concert, which was originally shown in 4K theatres around the world last year.
MUSE will help lead the charge of UltraFlix, delivering hundreds of hours of concert films from artists in 4K UHD. Other recently signed concerts and music documentaries include Mumford & Sons, Incubus, Jimi Hendrix, Kings of Leon, Paul Simon, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Shakira and Michael Jackson.
“UltraFlix is now slated to become the front-and-centre 4K video app on all major 4K TVs this year,” said Aaron Taylor, NanoTech’s executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Securing and delivering a wide variety of new and classic 4K titles to consumers’ homes is our top priority for 2014 and beyond. MUSE’s live performance, talent and industry vision have enabled us to demonstrate what 4K is all about.”
Members of MUSE said “This was the biggest tour we’ve done in terms of scale and production value and it’s definitely the show we’re most proud of, so we’re
really excited to release it In 4K Ultra High Definition for the first time. It captures an extraordinary amount of detail and not just everything we’re doing – the fans, even those at the back, the set, the actors and the incredible atmosphere on a very special night in Rome.”
