Sharp and NHK Successfully Develop with Super Hi-Vision, a World First
NHK and Sharp Corporation have jointly developed an 85-inch LCD compatible with Super Hi-Vision, a next-generation television broadcast format. This is a world first for a direct-view display.
NHK began R&D into Super Hi-Vision, which has dramatically higher resolution than current HDTVs, in 1995 and aims to begin trial broadcasts in 2020. With approximately 33 megapixels (7,680 x 4,320), or 16 times the resolution of HDTVs, Super Hi-Vision will offer powerful, life-like image reproduction.
Under the joint development, Sharp’s UV2A LCD technology was used to create, for the first time in the world, a direct-view LCD compatible with the unprecedentedly high display performance of Super Hi-Vision. The combination of the Sharp technology and NHK’s expertise and know-how in Super Hi-Vision will make ultra-detailed, super-high-quality images possible. The incredibly detailed images on the giant screen will immerse the viewer in a virtual-reality-like experience.
