Japan’s public broadcaster says it will be showcasing FIFA World Cup footage captured in 8K ‘Super Hi-Vision’ at IBC. The footage will be shown in 120 frames/second for super-smooth and high-detail viewing.
NHK says it collaborated with FIFA to produce 8K images of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. “The finest moments of play were captured with 120Hz frame frequency miniaturised 8K Cube Camera. The resulting images were clearer and smoother than those obtained by existing 60Hz frame frequency cameras. Viewers can get a real sense of the fast-moving play and the thrill of when goals are made.”
