Deluxe Provides Industry-First Delivery of Live 4K Video Across the Globe Using the Public Internet

Burbank, Calif.-based Deluxe Entertainment Services Group said March 29 that it’s successfully broadcast live 4K video between the U.K. and the U.S. using the public Internet.

Delivered at 50 Mbps, the live 4K stream was encoded using the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) video compression standard at a frame rate of 30 frames per second, leaving a Deluxe facility in the U.K. and traveling across several Internet service providers (ISPs), before arriving at Deluxe facilities in the U.S.

Deluxe said the broadcast — which was protected by Advanced Encryption Standard-256 (AES) encryption — opens up new opportunities for broadcasters worldwide.

“This is a significant development for broadcasters, content owners or any rights holder moving live video signals across continents,” said Alec Stichbury, CTO at Deluxe MediaCloud UK.
