Das Boot in 8K
People with a Sky Q subscription and a television capable of this can watch the third season of the German war series in 8K. The first two seasons of the series, which is a sequel to the 1981 film Das Boot, were already available in 4K UHD image quality.
Producer Bavaria Fiction indicates that with a Samsung Smart TV you can count on an even sharper 8K viewing experience, complete with vivid sound, thanks to Dolby Atmos sound technology. It promises “breathtaking and visually engaging high-end production using the latest innovative technology”.
Producers Moritz Polter and Jan S. Kaiser: “Das Boot is the first international series to be produced in 8K and Dolby Atmos. Thanks to the excellent image quality and three-dimensional soundscapes, we can tell the stories in an even more emotional and tangible way. In doing so, we create a truly immersive experience for the audience. ” Plus, adds Samsung’s Mike Henkelmann on Seenit, this also gives filmmakers image quality like they have never been able to make before.
