    Super high definition channels

    In recent days there has been persistent rumors that Apple is working on the expansion by a new format for HD video, or rather, Super HD.

    Indeed, if the rumors are confirmed, the format of Apple have a resolution of 4096 X 2160 pixels, four times the current HD has "only" 1920 X 1080. This could be an evolution of open source codec DIRAC, developed by the BBC, and has a HD resolution.

    If we tie ends and add this latest rumor to what we already know that Apple is doing, it is clear that we are preparing something big has to do with the distribution of content.

    Remember that Apple is building a server gramja North Carolina, the Mac Mini has just been renovated and now has an HDMI connector, and the Apple TV device is pending, has long been a deep update. Will Apple preparing a platform of content (music, video, software and games) that competes with ****** TV? Maybe we surprised ...

      I thought the current HD streaming was the best you could get for the eye? As you sit too far away from the tv to notice any more definition than 1080p. If you need to zoom in on parts of the picture then I can understand this

          I don't know well. I only know Apple have a resolution of 4096 X 2160 pixels and they called it "Super high definition".
          If you know more about this, tell us.
          Regards.

              That was was in the latest version of OSX if i am correct.

              The problem is bandwidth for something 4096x2160. It wouldn't be possible to broadcast that type of resolution over the air, so it would have to be via an internet connection. And even though you would need probably close to a 50mbit connection.

              I also doubt apple would just produce their own TV range for this, as they would need industry buy in to make it successful.

              Also I doubt the mac mini is powerful enough to run videos of that resolution. Also can even the HDMI specification go up to that resolution?

                  we have UHD inspection video for inspection of pcb's at work. But this is only because you can zoom into the pcb and check for shorts/poor connections and very small etching faults across tracks.

                    Re: Super high definition channels

                    Ultra HDTV (also known as “Super Hi-Vision” or “Ultra HD”), is an experimental video format conceptualized by the Japanese public broadcasting network, NHK.

                    Unlike standard HDTV, Ultra HDTV is four times as wide and four times as high, producing an astonishing 7,680 × 4,320 pixel resolution. Ultra HDTV is 16 times the pixel resolution of standard HDTV. Some believe that Ultra HD technology raises Ultra HDTV health concerns.

                    In addition to the significant upgrade in video quality, sound quality is also significantly increased with Ultra HDTV. 24 channels of audio can be used with 24 speakers, producing a difference comparable to the Ultra HD video resolution.

                    Currently, only 3 cameras are able to capture video in Ultra HDTV format, and can only capture about 20 minutes (requiring 4 terabytes) in a single day. Needless to say, our current infrastructure is not designed to meet the Ultra HDTV requirements.

                    Several sources suggest that Super Hi-Vision technology will be used in the 2012 Olympics and will be widely available by 2020.

                    September 29th, 2010 – NHK and BBC successfully broadcast a Super Hi-Vision signal from England to Japan.
                    May 19th, 2011 – Sharp unveils its 85-inch Ultra HDTV prototype.

                      1080p difference in a home is noticeable.

                      But not many people will want 80"+ tv's at home. And even if they got uhdtv on a 40" tv, will the home user be able to tell the difference between uhdtv and 1080?

                      Can't see it happening for a long time

                          Apple is without a doubt, one of the best companies that combine existing technologies and produce something great. Who would had though a jumbo ipod touch would actually be so useful. They are very good at innovating.

                            Bandwidth is a real problem, but as ever, it will be fixed. And if Apple is developing something like that, who knows?.....
