"The BBC's Blue Planet II programme is to become its first TV series to
be made available in 4K resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) colour
via its iPlayer catch-up service.
All seven episodes of the marine-themed show are being made available to
UK-based owners of select TVs.
Until now, the BBC had only released programmes in this format via
ultra-high definition (UHD) Blu-ray discs."
But what they don't say is whether the dynamic compression management
system employed on iPlayer's servers will allow end-users to download
the programmes without them being ruined by over compression at download
What sort of download speed is this going to need?
Mageia 5.1 for x86_64, Kernel:4.4.82-desktop-1.mga5
KDE version 4.14.5 on an AMD Phenom II X4 Black edition.
