NHK is Japan’s public broadcasting corporation. In August of this year, we initiated the world’s first Super Hi-Vision 8K test broadcast. We’ve developed various kinds of 8K TV programs, including live coverage of the Rio Olympics. We’ll show the highlights of NHK 8K programs and share some of the things we experienced and learned as we went through the production process. 8K Super Hi-Vision technology offers new expressive power through a strong sense of realism and presence based on research in human science fields such as visual perception.
Note: On FRI September 9, SAT September 10 and SUN September 11, 2016, an one-hour workshop on 8K for enthusiasts, amateurs and professionals will take place after the presentation at the conference room of the Ars Electronica Center (level -1).
