The test was conducted by KT Skylife receiving and decoding the 8K video transmitted by the Korea Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute using an antenna, and transmitting it to Samsung QLED TV through the latest HDMI standard in real-time.

The demonstration was based on the H.265 standard, a high-efficiency image compression method, at the Ka band (20 ~ 30GHz) of Chollian satellite.

"We will continue to cooperate with domestic and international experts to upgrade satellite UHD technology, We will lead the market. "Source
