    Default Digicel tests 4K TV Using Huawei

    Telecommunications provider Digicel Jamaica wants local providers to broadcast in 4K ultra high definition resolution as it considers launching the technology over its cable network.

    4K resolution, also called 4K, refers to a horizontal resolution in the order of 4,000 pixels and essentially delivers cinema quality video for home television.

    On Tuesday, Digicel invited patrons to view its testing of 4K television utilising Huawei as a technology partner. Huawei indicated that Jamaica was the first in the region to conduct such tests.

Why drive up costs even more by transmitting one or two channels in 4K? I can't name a single telco in the Americas transmitting content over IPTV in 4K. Their data network is sufficient enough to allow customers to stream 4K content at their leisure... Leave 4K TV alone and let's Digicel Play across the island.

    Precisely! I appreciate them flexing their muscles in regards to their network's capabilities but trust me, give enough Jamaicans access to that network and you'll be scrambling to resolve bottlenecks.
