4320p and 22.2 surround

Although high-definition formats HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc are the bleeding edge of technology in the current consumer market, a new technology from Japan makes the latest HD movies specifications look simply archaic. Last week, engineers at NHK's (Nippon Hoso Kyokai) Science and Technical Research Laboratories demonstrated Super Hi-Vision technology capable of a 7680x4320 resolution, reports IDG.

At 7680x4320, over 33 million pixels make up the image – this represents 16 times the resolution of a 1080p image. To get a picture of the bump in resolution, a Super Hi-Vision image could be approximated by tiling 16 of today’s best HDTVs together. In comparison, a 1080p picture represents a six-fold jump in resolution over standard-definition television.

Unlike current HD cameras, which are hitting the hands of consumers, the Super Hi-Vision camera sensors are not yet able to capture a full color picture. The latest prototype Super Hi-Vision sensor is monochrome, but NHK plans to incorporate three sensors – one for each primary color – in order to capture color images. The prototype is super-fast too, able to capture data at a rate of 4,000 frames per second.

NHK is also working on a sound system to complement the improved image. While today’s best home theaters have 7.1 setups, the audio component paired with Super Hi-Vision is 22.2.

Can't wait to wire up a 22.2 surround system. :headexplode:

Haha yeah I read that. It said that one minute of footage was like 160 megabytes.

That's it?

30 frames per second x 60 seconds per minute at that resolution seems like it would be a HELL of a lot higher.

The latest model of the Wii will have it by then though. It will be known as the p-Wii.

Maybe you mean 160gbyte? My dad's HD 1080i camera takes more than that for a minute, since it's 25mbit rate.

Hmm, this is pretty useless for any screen smaller than 100inches... Wouldn't mind having one though! :D

Wrong. The PS3 can do this with cell, and 32" LCD users will notice an immediate difference, just like they do with 1080pee.
