It is 2020 and you are at Best Buy. The new TV you are going to buy has 7,680x4,320 pixels, 100-inch size and is 1mm thin. Sharp and NHK start to make the future high definition standard Super Hi-Vision more real with the development of a 85-inch LCD TV supporting 16x the resolution of today's HDTVs.

NHK plans to start trial broadcasts of Super Hi-Vision in 2020. Super Hi-Vision promises life-like image quality. For the first time time we can actually see this resolution in action on a direct-view display. The Sharp Super Hi-Vision TV users Sharp's UV2A LCD technology.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
