 Nokia's trying to establish a big lead in phone camera technology with it's new 1020 that sports a 41 megapixel sensor. Just to put it in video terms: that's an 8K sensor, in a phone!

Taken with something of a sense of irony, a camera phone can't do justice to the magnificence of an 8K, 33 megapixel video screen.

The future of TV isn't about resolution but immersion. Netflix wants to take us bigger and wider

It dawned on me just the other day: we are living in the future. There is so much innovation and new technology around us that it no longer feels like we're merely living in the present. It's as if we're in a science fiction movie where we've been transported forward by ten or twenty years

It's just an experiment or hack, but it is real. A computer game running (albeit very slowly) in glorious 8K

At the risk of giving the game away - probably not. But we still think that Ultra Widescreen  - 21:9 - at 4K-type resolutions is a better bet than 8K, for all sorts of reasons

UHD is the new HD. Confused? You will be.

NHK is still pushing forward with its 8K Super-High Vision television project and is planning to begin test broadcasts in Asia next year (2016) with an end goal of broadcasting the entire 2020 Olympics in Tokyo at 8K resolution. To this end it is working closely with Hitachi on developing new 8K video cameras and the latest fruit from this collaboration is the SK-UHD-8060, an 8K camera with a 33-million pixel CMOS sensor.

What's the way forward with video? It's not, it seems, more resolution. What people want is better, not more, pixels
