An 8K display made up of four 4K panels and developed by NHK, on show at the Ceatec electronics show near Tokyo on October 4, 2016.
The screens were just 1 millimeter thick and the entire display, with backboard, was 2 millimeters thick -- about the thickness of three credit cards.
Development of 8K technology is accelerating in Japan thanks to the start of test broadcasting in August. The industry has pledged to provide coverage of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games in 8K, in Japan at least, so there's a clear deadline for everything to be ready.
