After working for months on smaller (only 85- or 103-inch) 4K plasmas, the two companies had to come up with an entirely new drive method for the display that works by scanning the pixels vertically to achieve a uniform picture quality.

The world's first self-illuminating Super Hi-Vision TV, it features every pixel of its expected 8K resolution -- 7,680 x 4,320.

NHK has been experimenting with an 8K image sensor, the output of which could be displayed on this TV natively. In order to reduce the flicker that comes with driving plasma TVs at such a high resolution, Panasonic and NHK created a brand new driving method which they claim can display 8K with rock solid stability.

The TV is designed to promote the research and development of Super Hi-Vision, something NHK has been working on for several years. They also intend to film the upcoming Olympics in SHV with the help of the BBC. Public screenings are being arranged in Japan, the US, and the UK,
