JVC shows path to Super Hi-Vision device at 17x high-def resolution

Wolfgang Gruener reports:

''Tokyo (Japan) – There is a slight chance that we may be running out of appropriate terms to describe next generation of high-resolution displays. Following high definitions, high(er) definition (briefly used by Sony), Quad HDTV, 4K and 8K, JVC now claims to have the first "Super Hi-Vision" device that can display 35 megapixels, roughly 17 times the resolution achieved by today's full HD, 1080p screens.

The manufacturer said that it has added a new LCOS-based D-ILA (Direct-Drive Image Light Amplifier) high-definition reflective liquid crystal device for projectors that is described to enable the display the highest resolution images and videos shown to date. Following the 7.86 megapixel 4K2K (3840 x 2048 pixels) D-ILA device that was released in 2003 (and upgraded to 4096x2400 pixels in 2007), there is now a 8K4K D-ILA projector model with a resolution of 8192 x 4320 pixels.''
