Insight TV Leads the Content Resolution Revolution Once Again with its First Documentary Filmed Entirely in 8K UHD HDR

Sandboarding on Dragon Hill” highlights the thrills of the gravity-defying sport in vibrant 8K UHD HDR for an unparalleled sensory experience.

Insight TV, the world’s leading 4K UHD HDR broadcaster, content creator and format seller, has announced the commission of an adventurous new documentary filmed entirely in 8K UHD HDR. Sandboarding on Dragon Hill premieres on Insight TV in June and is produced by French-based production company FastFokus.

“Insight TV has built a reputation in the industry for pushing the envelope on broadcast and digital streaming resolution. We are always looking for ways to be on the cutting edge of technology,” said Natalie Boot, Director of Media Sales, Insight TV. “Over the past year, we have experimented with 8K and have been blown away with the results. Sandboarding on Dragon Hill is our first full-length documentary film in 8K UHD HDR and we think viewers will be equally blown away with the powerful sensory experience of this film.”

Set in the Chilean city of Iquique in the breathtaking Atacama Desert, Sandboarding on Dragon Hill entices viewers to dive into the thrills of the extreme sport of sandboarding, which is similar to snowboarding but on mountains of desert sands. The documentary follows Canadian mountain bike legend Brett Tippie as he travels to Chile to ride the biggest sand dune in the world. In the show, Iquique local and two-time sandboarding world champion Jose Martinez brings Brett and his lifelong friend, MTB star and ex pro-skier Richie Schley, to the best sandboarding locations in the area. Viewers will marvel at the three athletes as they glide with ease and grace on the orange sand with their MTBs, snowboards and skis.

“We are delighted to be working with Insight TV on another adventurous show with some of the world’s best mountain biking talent. Insight TV and FastFokus share a passion for bringing extreme sports to life with thrilling content filmed in the highest quality,” said Damien Vergez of FastFokus.

Sandboarding on Dragon Hill is Insight TV’s second show to be produced by FastFokus after mountain biking series MTB Heroes: Trailblazers, which premiered in 2017. The commission of Sandboarding on Dragon Hill further positions Insight TV as an expert in adventurous content told through the eyes of global influencers.

Sandboarding on Dragon Hill was shot entirely in 8K UHD HDR, bolstering Insight TV’s reputation for high-quality content after the company experimented with filming segments of its original series Car Crews with Supercar Blondie and 24 Hours at Spa in 8K UHD HDR last year.
