Future display standards, hoooo! Japanese broadcaster NHK has collaborated with telecom NTT to do a little proof-of-concept transmission of some “Super High-Vision” video, or 7680×4320 pixels, the probable broadcast version of the enormous 8K resolution of RED yore. They managed to transmit it all the way around the world with a delay (due to inefficiencies in the system, lost packets, etc) of only 0.3s — far less than the 1.2s of earlier tests.
Don’t worry about upgrading your TV, though. They’re not hoping to roll out SHV broadcasting until around 2020.
