The Berliner Philharmoniker have improved their Digital Concert Hall: According to the press release, it is now the world’s first video stream provider with a high-resolution audio track in lossless studio quality.
Digital Concert Hall: What’s New?
From now on, the concert streams of the Berliner Philharmoniker in the Digital Concert Hall can not only be broadcast with an ultra-high resolution video signal (UHD), but also with a lossless video signal Studio quality audio track to be enjoyed. This new offer was realized through the support and advice of the Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ).
The well-known standard FLAC (up to 24 bit / 96 kHz) is used as the codec. All concerts are already available from the archive in FLAC at no additional cost, and in future live broadcasts from the Berlin Philharmonic will also be available in high-resolution audio.
The Digital Concert Hall has been streaming around 40 concerts live every season since 2008 and then makes them available in its archive. The archive now includes several hundred concert recordings, supplemented by interviews and documentaries. The contents are below www.digitalconcerthall.com retrievable, but also under various mobile devices, a list of supported apps and devices can be found here.
