Japanese Hope New Television Technology Will Boost Tokyo 2020 Bid

InsideTheGames.bizx reports that Japan plans to show that holding the Olympics and Paralympics here in 2020 would be the most technologically advanced in history by demonstrating new cutting-edge “8k” ultra high definition television to the team of inspectors who are here to assess their bid. 

The country’s Communications Ministry is planning to show the technology to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Evaluation Commission, headed by Britain’s Sir Craig Reedie, who are due to officially begin their visit to the Japanese capital on Monday (March 4).

Broadcasts in 8K will offer a resolution of 7,680 by 4,320 pixels – roughly the equivalent of a 32 megapixel photo, which is believed to be at the limit of what the human eye can process.
