HDTV - The New Low Def

While some of you are more than happy with your upscaling DVD players and Blu ray movies, and your 720p and 1080i broadcasts, some others think that still isn't enough.

NHK has recentely demoed a Super Hi-Vision projection system, with 7,680 x 4,320 pixels resolution on a 6.6 x 3.7 m screen at 8,000 lumens.

That's 16x better resolution than your regular HD image.

I can't stop wondering how make-up people will be able to hide stuff on movies and TV broadcasts. At last, people will be able to see (maybe even more that they would like) their favourite hosts, actors, and actresses.

Keep in mind that "high-end" digital movie systems have 4k resolution - half of what this Super Hi-Vision provides. And in most cases, you're actually dealing with just 2k digital projectors.

Well, in my old trusted 12" CRT, *anything* still look like "High-(In)Definition". :)
