Historic Super HD Broadcast – UK to Japan
While many people are still getting used to the terms Full HD / HD ready and now even more so 3D HDTV, the next technology Super Hi-Vision TV is getting even closer.
In an “Historic” first of its kind broadcast, a Super Hi-Vision TV broadcast has been transmitted from the UK to Japan. This broadcast of a gig by The Charlatans was sent over super high-speed Internet, rather than traditional satellites.
Super Hi-Vision is 16 times the resolution of our current Full HD, with a resolution of 7680-by-4320 pixels, rather than 1920 x 1080.
The technology has been developed by Japanese public broadcaster NHK, and they hope to broadcast in Super Hi-Vision by 2020.
The sensor in the camera used can capture such incredible detail, they found regular camera lens weren’t upto scratch and they had to have special lens created.
