We might be years far from watching the sweet, sweet 33MP resolution video promised by Super Hi-Vision within our own homes, but in Japan, NHK engineers are slowly exercising the different kinks keeping it from us. Their latest development is camera seen the pictures on the left hand side, effective at recording 8K in the camera head which is smaller and lighter compared to previous unit (the new one weighs 4kg, about 1/5th the weight) shown within the right, and it is more similar to the dimensions of a typical HDTV camera.
Based on the NHK the savings were attained by creating a new single plate color imaging mechanism and eliminating the advantages of a prism to split up the colours beforehand, therefore it is small enough for use with standard Slr lenses. Sure, decades quite all set on the next vacation, when you’re in Japan you can aquire a peek at it (and that 145-inch 8K Panasonic plasma) on the broadcaster’s open house later in may.
It is just overview, for your full content, video, photos,
much more the initial source.
