Panasonic, NHK announce 145-inch 8K plasma display

145-inch flicker free 8K TV developed in Japan

Panasonic and Japanese broadcaster NHK have worked together on a 145-inch plasma TV with a native resolution of 7680x4320. The 8K display, referred to as "Super Hi-Vision" in Japan, is a marked increase in size compared to another NHK collaboration of 85 inches.

Larger plasma displays typically have flickering issues at high resolutions, prompting NHK and Panasonic to work out a solution claimed to be flicker-free.

The screen was developed as part of an effort towards the next generation of TV broadcasting services. Previously, the BBC and NHK had broadcast a concert in 8K as a test, and the BBC will be showing some Olympic coverage in the format this Summer.
