And you thought High Definition Video was good?

So you think High Definition Video is as crystal clear as can be with perfect pristine quality audio? Well when compared to our current Digital Video (in the form of DVD and Digital TV mostly) that does tend to be true. Now this is not exactly "new" news, but I think if anyone hasn’t seen this, they really should. Ever hear of UHDV? Ultra High Definition Video has been around quite a while but not many people have heard of it, so what exactly is different about it?
Well first of all its resolution is a massive 7,680 by 4,320 pixels. The video runs at 60fps. The audio is 22.2ch audio, 9 above ear level, 10 at ear level, 3 below ear level and 2 low frequency effects. So who would be crazy enough to try and test this out? NHK researchers in Japan of course! They conducted a test using an array of 16 HDTV recorders to capture the 18-minute-long test footage with a camera built with 4 2.5 inch (64 mm) CCDs. So what did the lucky people who witnessed this test get out of it? They got motion sickness, in area's where the camera would move fast.

So when it comes to Digital Video I guess we have some good times to look forward to eh? :-)

Ok...motion sickness? Japanese kids had seizures when watching pokemon. The episode featured a pikachu shock blast and it had a repetative change from blue to red.

Not to be racist... but Japanese are pretty fanatical when it comes to the media. But bring on the UHDV. Maybe we'll start taking TV pills! XD
