Tokyo 2020 points to 8K Future (and 4K's obsolescence?).

Published in Business

The decision by the International Olympic Committee to give the 2020 Olympics to Tokyo means that NHK's decades long project to bring its 8K Super Hi-Vision project to the masses not only has a deadline but that 4K now has the threat of built-in obsolescence to cope with.

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

NAB 2015: Ikegami joins the 8K party

Published in Production

Ikegami is another manufacturer working with NHK on developing Super Hi-Vision camera kit, and with its latest shoulder-mounted SHK-810 it is also highlighting the astonishing amount of progress made since it manufactured its first 8K prototype back in 2002.

Given that five minutes of uncompressed 8K can take up an entire terabyte of storage, harnessing the power of HEVC to squash it down into something both storable and transmittable is a worthwhile venture. NHK and Mitsubishi have been the first to do it with this 8K encoder.

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