Croatian public broadcaster HRT switches to High Definition

HRT (Hrvatska radiotelevizija) has upgraded its broadcasts on Eutelsat 16A satellite. HRT 1, HRT 2, HRT 3 and HRT 4 were switched to HD resolution.
On the 1st of February 2019 Croatian public broadcaster has switched majority of its television channels to high definition. HD broadcasts are available on Eutelsat 16A satellite at 16E. Due to content legal issues the channels are mostly secured using Viaccess. Multiplex is uplinked by local operator OiV.

HRT 1, HRT 2, HRT 3 and HRT 4 were switched from MPEG-2 to AVC video with 1920x1080 resolution. Currently HRT Int. is the only HRT's service that continues SD broadcasting on satellite.
Unfortunately it seems that vast of content is still upscaled from original SD materials. It is clearly visible on HRT 4 where on-screen graphics are also produced in old SD.



Hrvatska radiotelevizija had started its migration to HD in December 2018. By the end of the last year this broadcaster has launched HRT 2 HD.

HRT channels' technical details on satellite:

Eutelsat 16A (16E)
10721 MHz, pol. H, SR 27500 kS/s, FEC 3/4, DVB-S/QPSK
