Japanese not satisfied with normal HD

Research engineer’s at NHK’s Science and Technical Research Laboratory in Japan have plans to produce a Super High Definition Video format that will have 16 times the resolution of current HD at a whopping 7680×4320 pixels!

With a minimum screen size of 60 inches, Super Hi-Vision or Ultra High-Definition if you prefer is being made for a specially constructed 500 inch screen in the Japanese labs.

What about the Cameras?

Unfortunately, there are only two cameras capable of recording at the resolution required and both are extremely large and heavy and can only shoot 20 minutes of film a day,

Storage requirements

20 minutes of film requires over 3.5 Terabytes of storage space.

300m yen (£1.46m) has been provided by the Japanese government for further research.
