Super Hi-Vision Videos or 8K is the holy grail of all geeks, well at least to the ones who would love to see 7,680×4,320 Movies at home or wherever they can. Being 16 times the resolution of full HD movies, Super Hi-Vision Videos can be tricky to transmit without degradation from let’s say Japan to North America then to Europe.
But the Joint effort of both NHK and NTT finally paid-off! NHK was capable then to transmit Super Hi-Vision videos all around the world (80,000km) with just a 0.3 second lag, a huge improvement compared to the usual 1.2 seconds lag obtain when using satellites.
Strong from this success, NHK hopes now to be able to make Super Hi-Vision ready for the public in 2020 in order to broadcast International Sports event from Japan at first.
