The BBC has confirmed to Tech Radar that it will partner with Japan's NHK broadcaster to deliver selected events from the London Olympics (including the opening and closing ceremonies) in a whopping 7680x4320 (or 8k4k) resolution.
That's 16 times the detail of the current standard full HD resolution, in case you were wondering. (You can see some examples of 8k4k TVs in action from our CES coverage.)
Standard HD TVs obviously won't be able to handle such resolutions so you're going to have to travel to the Broadcasting house in London, the National Media Museum in Bradford or BBC Scotland's TV studios in Glasgow to get in on the Ultra HD action. Mind you, if you're going to make the trip to the UK, you might as well watch the real thing.
