London 2012: Experimental 8K Television System Set to Debut
The BBC, NHK and OBS are offering some members of the public a glimpse of the future by collaborating to transmit certain Olympic events iin unprecedented 8K. Says BBC project executive Tim Plyming, "It’s exactly like looking through a glass window. The images seem to go around corners and curves. Most people say it is more 3D than 3D. With 3D you are aware that your brain has to work. Here you just sit in front of the screen and relax. I think when people see it, they will say this is the next really big format"
The 8K broadcasts will be available at certain public viewing sites in the UK and Japan. Read more here on The Hollywood Reporter.
