NHK has been developing SUPER Hi-VISION, an ultra-high-definition TV system, which gives an extremely realistic presentation whereby viewers may feel as though they are actually at the site shown on the screen.
In 2012, we exhibited a new 33-megapixel CMOS image sensor operating at a frame frequency of 120 Hz, which is double the frame frequency of the current SUPER Hi-VISION system, and an experimental colour camera system using the sensors. The system obtains clear images even of fast-moving subjects.
We also exhibited SUPER Hi-VISION 85-inch LCD with a frame frequency of 60 Hz together with an audio system that reproduces 22.2ch sound fields with 12 frontal loudspeakers. Some new content intended to enhance the appeal of SUPER Hi-VISION was also shown.
