IBC2014 Premiere for High Frame Rate 8k Television from NHK
|By Business Wire
|August 8, 2014 06:30 AM EDT
Latest advances in 8K (Super Hi-Vision), including 120 frames a second,
to be unveiled at IBC2014.
In what is sure to be an incredibly popular demonstration at IBC2014,
Japanese public broadcaster NHK is once more demonstrating its 8k Super
Hi-Vision television system, including the latest enhancements such as
high frame rate resolution.
8k Super Hi-Vision is a dramatic leap forward in video and audio
technologies, featuring 16 times the resolution of today’s HD, and 22.2
channel audio. NHK has been leading its development, and first brought a
theatre demonstration of the system to IBC in 2006. Since then IBC has
seen many milestones in 8k, including the first international links –
from London and Torino to Amsterdam – at IBC2008.
In 2008 NHK won an IBC Special Award for its work on 8k, and in 2012 NHK
Science and Technology Research Laboratories were the recipients of
IBC’s highest award, the International Honour for Excellence.
This year the milestone is an end to end high frame rate system.
Cameras, video processing and displays all provide 8k resolution – 7680
x 4320 pixels – at 120 progressive frames a second, resulting in an
unprecedented sense of ‘being there’.
Highlights from the FIFA World Cup will be shown on the NHK stand in the
IBC Future Zone, located in the Park Foyer near Hall 8 of the IBC
Exhibition. The presentation will also feature recordings made at the
National Palace Museum in Taiwan, emphasising the use of 8k video in
galleries and installations.
“This is a really important moment in the development of 8k,” said Dr
Sugawara, deputy head of NHK Science and Technology Research
Laboratories. “Our live public screening trial at the FIFA World Cup was
extremely successful. I believe implementation of our new high frame
rate system will make fast-moving content like sport look sensational.
We have always shown our latest developments at IBC, and we look forward
to discussing progress with our worldwide peers once again this year.”
“We are delighted to welcome NHK to the IBC Future Zone once more, as we
continue our close relationship around 8k,” said Michael Crimp, CEO of
IBC. “We have followed NHK’s work with great interest, and are very
pleased that NHK has chosen IBC as the venue to show its latest advances
in 8k. At IBC we partner with those at the leading edge who want to show
and debate game-changing innovations, and there are few more
transformative ideas at present than high resolution, high frame-rate
systems like 8k.”
8K (Super Hi-Vision) is a very high resolution video system, designed
for transmission to the home, to theatres and in specialist applications
such as museums and art galleries. Its screen resolution is 16 times
that of HD: 7680 pixels on 4320 lines. The latest version of the system,
being shown at the IBC Future Zone, has a high frame rate of 120
progressive frames a second. The picture resolution is complemented with
a 3D surround system, including 22 audio channels on three levels, plus
two sub-woofer channels.
The system is now close to practical implementation: NHK is proposing 8k
test satellite broadcasting in 2016, with the launch of public services
in Japan in 2020. The latest developments in communications technology
allow the full resolution 144 Gb/s signal to be carried in real time
over a single fibre cable. NHK is using the HEVC codec to process native
8k video and audio for satellite transmission in a single 100 Mb/s

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.
Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
