Super Hi-Vision HD TV by NHK | IMAX in your living room

A new television technology known as Super Hi-Vision offers viewers a picture 16 times the resolution currently available on HDTVs.

Japan’s public broadcaster Nippon Housou Kyoukai (NHK) demonstrated the technology that they have pioneered on the world’s largest plasma TV, a 145-inch screen made by Panasonic.

You don’t have to go square-eyed watching TV on a screen the size of your entire living room wall, though. The 33 megapixel (7680×4320 pixels or ‘8k’) pictures are equally stunning (and slightly less disorienting) viewed on smaller screens, such as the 85-inch LCD TVs by Sharp.
