Default 4320p and 22.2 surround

http://www.dailytech.com/NHK+Demonst...rticle7466.htm

Quote:
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.

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!

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