SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoTech Entertainment (OTCPINK: NTEK), a pioneer in bringing the 4K Ultra HD experience to consumers, announced today that it has signed an agreement with Samsung Electronics America, Inc., the global leader in TV technology. Under the agreement, the UltraFlix 4K streaming channel will be launched on all 2014 Samsung Ultra High-Definition (UHD) TVs. The transactional Video-On-Demand 4K network will be available starting Tuesday November 25, on Samsung UHD TVs as a featured 4K App. With UltraFlix, Samsung UHD TV customers will have one-click access to more than 500 hours of pristine 4K Ultra HD PPV movies, concerts, TV shows and special events, including 100 hours of dazzling free content.
UltraFlix and Samsung UHD TVs will deliver ultra-sharp 4K content with a resolution of 3840 x 2160, which is 4 times that of Full HD (FHD) TVs. Designed to leverage the latest HEVC compression standards, NanoTech's streaming 4K UHD software archives up to 50 percent better compression than with H.264; effectively delivering the same 4K Ultra HD quality at nearly half the bitrate.
"Samsung is the leader in TV technology, so we are excited to launch the UltraFlix streaming service on their complete family of UHD TVs," said Aaron Taylor, NanoTech's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
