Tired of Wating for 4K. Well Here Comes 8K

Demand for 4K is slowly increasing now that there is regular press coverage and consumer products are starting to appear (see: Beyond Blu-ray). NHK and Panasonic have raised the bar yet again with their prototype 145-inch 8K plasma display. The display has 16 times the resolution of a regular Full HD display, having a resolution of 7,860 pixels horizontally and 4,320 pixels vertically, and a frame rate of 60 fps.

The display will be on show to the public from May 24-27, at NHK's Science & Technology Research Laboratories in Tokyo. For those who can't wait (or can't afford the airfare) you can get a glimpse of it here:
