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
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!
