NHK bets on Super Hi-Vision as future TV
Monday, September 17th, 2007

Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) sees its 8K x 4K ultrahigh-resolution broadcasting, which it has labeled Super Hi-Vision, as the next generation of consumer TV. Now NHK has taken a step toward realizing that vision by demonstrating working prototypes of key component systems.

But it might be a few decades before the technology makes it to market. And the breakneck pace at which communications, broadcasting and information technologies are transforming themselves leaves a question hanging over the whole enterprise: Twenty or more years from now, will consumers want it?
