World-first IPTV UHD broadcast with Dolby Atmos at Top 14 Final

CANAL+ group, Dolby and Euromedia worked together to complete the world’s first ‘live’ commercial test broadcast to feature Ultra HD and Dolby Atmos sound. The test broadcast was completed during the Top14 Rugby Final, between RC Toulon and the Racing 92 on Friday June 24 in Barcelona.

Dolby Atmos sound fills your room and flows all around you with breathtaking realism to create a powerful entertainment experience. Originally designed for the cinema, Dolby Atmos has many benefits for live broadcasting, especially sport.

It allows you to capture the true atmosphere of the stadium and the intensity of the up-close action on the pitch. Combined with Ultra HD, CANAL+ subscribers experienced a new era of live sport on television.

CANAL+’s subscribers with a fibre connection from Orange can enjoy this broadcast experience with the new Livebox. With this test, CANAL+ group has reaffirmed its position as a leading broadcaster and first to bring new technologies to TV audiences.
