The UHD line-up will include 12 conference sessions and a keynote speech by Sony Pictures Entertainment’s senior vice-president of technology, Bill Baggelaar.
There will also be a 4K world premiere screening of the first episode of NHK’s new fantasy series Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit, an adaptation of a 12-volume novel that has been three years in the making.
Other companies due to present extracts of new Ultra HD content during MipTV include Atlantic Productions, the BBC, Eutelsat, Globo TV, Orange, Pearl TV, Red Bull Media and Sky Italia.
“By any measure this is the biggest gathering of top line broadcasters and programme producers to showcase the most spectacular examples of 4K content and the latest news on Ultra HD transmission,” according to the 4K Ultra HD programme’s executive producer, Chris Forrester.
The MipTV global distribution market for TV and online content will run from April 4-7 in Cannes, France.
