While at CES we were blown away by NHK and Panasonic's 8K TV, but were told it would be a long time before it’s working properly. And now we hear that NHK has broadcast, what it calls a compressed Super Hi-Vision 8K signal, in Japan. Colour us excited.
NHK has managed to send the 8K signal over 2.7 miles without any interference. That’s a whopping 7680x4320 resolution sent over a few UHF frequencies. With news of new superfast terahertz frequencies being used for Wi-Fi, we’re hoping 8K TV could be here just in time for super fast Wi-Fi viewing. Although the 8K technology is here, we’re yet to see film studios or cinemas using it – until then we’re keeping our eye-watering excitement under wraps.
