NHK demonstrates Ultra-High-Definition (7,680 x 4,320 pixels) protoype system

Japanese national TV broadcaster NHK demonstrated an amazing projection system at the CommunicAsia, a Tech expo currently taking place in Singapore.

NHK used 2 Lcos projectors (8,000 lumens) and a screen measuring 6.6 x 3.7 meters to demonstrate their 33 megapixel, 8K video projection technology (7,680 x 4,320 pixels). The ultra-high-definition format produces pictures four times as wide and four times as high as full HD. NHK also connected a 22.2-channel cinema sound system to the demo screen.

The broadcaster used footage recorded with a self-developed 8K studio camera. It was the first time in Asia (not counting Japan) NHK demonstrated their technology to the general public.
