DVB-S2 satellite communication standard has been used for the transmission of the Ultra HD signal at the 20 Mb/sec rate.

 

According  to the company representatives, this was the first live video-transmission of Ultra HD(3840 x 2160 pixels) by HEVC standard, while previously only H.264 had been used.
