Japan gears up for 8K TV broadcasting

Martyn Williams | Oct. 6, 2016
With only four years to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Japan is fast developing gear for the new broadcasting format

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.
