Hey! High definition is confusing enough. People are just now getting used to 720p/1080i and 1080p, so here comes NHK again with their UHDV. Ultra High Definition TV has a resolution of a measly 7,680 x 4,320 which works out to be 16 times the current 1920 x 1080 standard we have today. This is nothing new though guys. (and gals) They have been showing this off around the world for a couple of years now starting at NAB back in 2004. It is still pretty cool though and when you combine that uber-high resolution with 22.2 channels of audio...WOW. Simply wow. Don't except Circuit City or Best Buy to carry this anytime within the decade though. Or even within the next decade, as they are aiming for a 2025 launch. So if you save a dollar a day till the launch in 19 years, you will have just under $7000 to be the first kid on the block with UHDV!

[thanks to everyone that sent this in]
