NHK produces, transmits and broadcasts TV programme with a new ‘feeling of realism’

With a series of music film programmes screened from 12 – 15 February 2017 attendants will experience a new dimension of TV: pictures emerge as 33 million pixels displayed on a 220 inch screen - in short, imagine 16 times HD and four times 4K resolution! The combination of the Ultra High Definition picture with a three-dimensional, 22.2 multichannel sound system, creates an immersive reality transferring audiences on location.
