Digicel Group and Huawei Technologies last week joined forces to give Jamaicans a first-hand view of the 4K TV experience.

Hosted at Digicel’s downtown Kingston headquarters in Jamaica, the test involving local media, demonstrated the benefit of having a 100% fibre optic network and 100% IPTV capabilities coupled with Huawei’s latest technology for encoding and delivery.

Popularly known as 4K TV or Ultra High Definition TV, the pixel-packed technology enhances the viewing experience with picture quality that is four times clearer, crisper, sharper than even the highest quality HD TV can ever deliver – bringing entertainment, sports and movies to life in a whole new way.

Loop News' video editor Richard Baker and reporter Keliah Taffe were at the Huawei Digicel 4K TV First-Look event. See highlights in the video below.
