4KUNIVERSE Channel Secures Distribution in China


LOS ANGELES: DiaDem Technologies will distribute 4K Ultra HD general-entertainment channel 4KUNIVERSE throughout China thanks to a ten-year deal.

4KUNIVERSE is the first 24/7 4K UHD general-entertainment channel launched in North America by Matthew Mancinelli. The agreement gives the tech company DiaDem Technologies exclusive distribution rights to 4KUNIVERSE in China, grants the company authority to secure content approval with the Chinese government and to launch 4KUNIVERSE’S 4K linear and 4K SVOD offering across all platforms.

“It’s refreshing that both Gordon Gu, CEO of DiaDem Technologies and I share the same vision about 4K market growth, rapid deployment of fiber internet speeds and the eventual rollout of 5G mobile technology,” said Matthew Mancinelli, the founder and CEO of 4KUNIVERSE. “I look forward to working together to distribute the 4KUNIVERSE channel to the millions of Chinese who currently, and will eventually, own a 4K-enabled device.”

“It’s a great opportunity [for] both DiaDem and 4KUNIVERSE to promote and develop the 4K market through all tech ways, from fiber, cable, satellite, wireless and coming 5G mobile, etc.,” said Gordon Gu, CEO of DiaDem Technologies. “Our investment in SEEi.TV, the leading live-streaming tech platform, can offer both IP and SDI signal to all individuals/OTTs and TVs, thus [keeping] the Max flexibility to match with the market expectation. The same vision on both technology and market development trends for 4K affords a natural partnership between our companies. I trust the ten-year exclusive partnership can bring fruitful return to both.”
