The TV format to replace HD


Three major broadcasters have demonstrated the format they are developing to replace high definition television.

Super Hi-Vision promises to be 16 times sharper than today's HD sets.

Japan's NHK, Italy's RAI and the BBC mounted a Super Hi-Vision show at the IBC broadcasting industry conference in Amsterdam.

IBC's Director of Technology, Phil White, admits it may be a long time before homes switch to such a high quality format.
