Euro 2024, no Ultra HD 4K capture?

The information remains to be confirmed as it seems so anachronistic, the next Euro 2024 (European football championship) to be held in Germany next year from June 14 to July 14 would not be produced in Ultra HD 4K, but in “simple high definition”.

This is what Tim Achberger, the technical director of Sportcast, the company in charge of producing the matches, said on the occasion of the Sky Sport Summit 2023, an annual meeting for professionals in live recording. of the Bundesliga, the German football league.

Euro 2024, no Ultra HD 4K broadcast…

Tim Achberger, during his intervention within the Trends in Sports Production panel, indeed indicated that UEFA had decided not to produce Euro 2024 in Ultra HD 4K. We don't know anything more at the time of writing these lines... Curious decision if any, especially with the proximity of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games which will be held a few days later from July 26 to August 11 and which will be well captured and broadcast in Ultra HD 4K (see our news France 2 UHD 4K and France 3 UHD 4K from September 2023 on DTT, 100% of the population covered for the Paris 2024 Olympics).
