BBC plans to broadcast the Olympics 2012 in London in Super Hi-Vision, which is a term used for 7680x4320 pixel resolution, or 16 times Full HD (1920x1080 pixels).<br /><br /><h3>London 2012 Olympics in Super Hi-Vision</h3>Almost every single TV sold today comes with Full HD resolution (1920x1080). For many years there has been talk about the next step in resolution and many industry members support the Super Hi-Vision standard - also called Ultra HDTV or UDHTV.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/superhivision-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/superhivision-1.jpg" alt="OL in London 2012 will be shot in Super Hi-Vision" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>OL in London 2012 will be shot in Super Hi-Vision</i></p><br />The Olympics will not be available in Super Hi-Vision at home but at three pre-selected locations in London, including BBC's Pacific Quay building in Glasgow, Broadcasting House in London and the National Media Museum in Bradford. BBC plans to use gigantic 50ft-high screens.<br /><br />People often argue that Full HD is enough for living room TVs but higher resolution can definitely improve the viewing experience when viewed on very large screens such as cinema screens. IMAX uses a resolution very close to Super Hi-Vision.<br /><br />- <i>“When you sit and watch it you really get the experience of being in seat D5 in the stadium, Super Hi Vision might be a better long-term prospect than 3D in some ways it gives you the feel of being in the stadium. People are knocked out by it”</i> says Roger Mosey from BBC.<br /><br />BBC also plans to broadcast select branches of sport from the Olympics in 3D but the final details are still being negotiated. <br /><br />Sharp exhibited a <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1306141811 target=_blank><b>85" TV with 7680x4320 resolution</b></a> some time ago but they have no plans to release it at the moment.<br /><br />- <i>Source: The Guardian</i>
