And here we are, still waiting for HDTV to pick up in New Zealand, and the ITU apparently has approved a new UHDTV


"UHDTV, or Ultra High Definition Television, allows for programming and broadcasts at resolutions of up to 7680 by 4320, along with frame refresh rates of up to 120Hz, double that of most current HDTV broadcasts. The format also calls for a broader palette of colours that can be displayed on screen."

Well I saw a number of 4K sets and projectors at CES in January. This is 4096 x 2160 so not even UHDTV standard.  With upscaled content they looked very good but native 4K content, especially on a large projector was spectacular. I recall one example in the JVC demo booth where they showed iMax scanned at 4K and that was very impressive.




System One: Popcorn Hour A200,  PS3 SuperSlim, NPVR running on Sempron 3000 (XP), Sony BDP-S390 BD player, Logitech Revue, Pioneer AVR, Panasonic 60" 3D plasma

Imagine how absolutely awesome it will be watching the All Blacks play live on Sky and how it will look (and sound) like on that...

What exists that you could actually plug into such a TV to get the full definition that it offers?

22.2 multi-channel audio. Awesome!

Quote from the end of the article:
During the summer Olympics, NHK together with British broadcaster BBC showed parts of the event using the 8k format.

Yet, we were left saddled with an appalling 720x576 picture, and even worse AAC-HE audio from Prime.
